Peds DKA ... whats the difference?

Don't forget the risk of cerebral edema. Initial fluid resuscitation is 10-20cc/kg over 1-2hr and may be repeated as necessary.

More to come in upcoming blogs on the specifics of age and/or weight cutoffs for approaching older teenager/young adult patients using adult vs pediatric DKA management guidelines. **I have consulted the expert and I am currently awaiting a response.
