Some links and resources to look at with regard to diabetic emergencies:
EMBasic – a good overview of definitions, assessment, investigations and management
British Paeds Endocrine Guidelines – have a look at page 15 for the management flowchart
Paediatric Calculator – a useful doc for working out fluid and insulin doses in children.
