We are pleased to announce that the Pediatric Hyperglycemia and Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) (5th Edition) educational module is now available. This course aims to enhance the emergency care of pediatric patients who present with hyperglycemia and/or DKA. It will discuss a number of topics including appropriate:

  • Assessment
  • Management
  • Prevention of Complications
  • Disposition
  • Patient & Parent/Caregiver Education

It is our hope that healthcare professionals will utilize these materials to further enhance the care of children in their own settings.
