Diabetic Emergencies

The EvidenceCare Diabetic Emergencies pathway provides treatment guidelines for the most common and immediately life-threatening diabetes complications: hyperglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state (HHS), and hypoglycemia. The pathway also provides treatment recommendations for pediatric patients with hypoglycemia and diabetic ketoacidosis. The recommendations are based on the latest research from American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Care, and Diabetologia.
