In the August episode of Critical Decisions in Emergency Medicine, Drs. Danya Khoujah and Wendy Chang break down the acute management of diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially fatal hyperglycemic crisis that can lead to dangerous electrolyte abnormalities, including hypokalemia, if not recognized and treated early. They’ll also discuss ways to avoid a common and frustrating problem in the emergency department: patients who leave the hospital against medical advice. In addition, you’ll hear about the hot topics covered in the publication’s regular features, including Critical ECG and Critical Procedure.
