Abstract

DKA is a medical emergency. The complex pathophysiology of this disorder is compounded by the complexity of the child. Even within the pediatric population there is infinite variety in growth and metabolic needs, hormone levels, and fluid requirements. More research is needed on how these differences impact therapy and how complications, such as cerebral edema, can be averted. For now, thoughtfully attending to pathophysiology, understanding evidence-based management, and individualizing therapy of the child who has DKA is the standard of care.
