HMOs: Diabetic Emergencies

Updated: May 2017




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.
