This is a topic episode on Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA). We’ll discuss the diagnosis and treatment of this complex disease process and how to avoid pitfalls that can harm the patient. There will also be tons of clinical pearls including treatment of DKA’s cousin Hyperglycemic Hyperosmolar State (HHS) and pediatric DKA considerations.
Also, you can now follow EM Basic on Twitter- @embasic for news on the latest episodes and anything else interesting that I find related to emergency medicine.
This episode is also the debut of a new microphone setup that gives a much higher audio quality for the podcast.
