New PedsPac!

We have a new Pediatric Pack (PedsPac) available: Diabetic Ketoacidosis is a complication of new or existing Type 1 Diabetes. Pediatric DKA may be complicated by cerebral edema and due to this risk, is treated differently than adult DKA. Health care providers must follow a published pediatric-specific protocol when treating pediatric DKA. Early communication with the diabetes specialist at your pediatric referral site is a key element of the management of these patients. Our DKA resources have been developed based on a recent study by Dr. Nathan Kuppermann and the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN). The study found that neither the rate of administration nor the sodium chloride content of IV fluids significantly influenced neurologic outcomes in children with DKA. Click here to check out our practical tools for treating and managing pediatric DKA. Our tools include a management algorithm, pocket cards, a pre-printed order set and a transport checklist.
