The emergency department is often the first location children with newly-diagnosed diabetes or those with complications from their diabetes, including diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), receive care. In partnership with colleagues in the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN), Texas Children's Hospital and BCM prospectively enrolled children in a clinical trial to determine the association between fluid composition and volume in correcting DKA and preventing the cognitive sequelae that can be seen with individual and repetitive episodes of DKA.
