Impression : gastroenteritis with moderate dehydration ( 5-7%) <br />Plan :<br />Blood investigations: cbc, ue1<br />IVF 20 ml /kg NS bolus , then dextrose saline 0.45 % @100 ml/hr + kcl 10 mmol/500 ml<br />To give ondasterone and try oral intake <br />Reassess later <br />
Reassessment <br />After 1 hour :<br />The child looks unwell<br />Not active , but still alert and responding <br />RR 37<br />Capillary refilling 3 sec <br />The mother said he is drinking good amount of water but he vomited 3 times and had one small amount of loose stool. <br />
It was the end of the shift <br />The case handed over to the next coming team<br />After reassessment , they sent VBG and showed pH of 7.2 and they check reflow it was 16 mmol/l <br />So it was DKA and they started management <br />
DKA is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in children with T1DM ranging from 0.15 % to 0.31 % . <br />In addition, DKA also can occur in children with T 2 DM; this presentation is most common among youth of African-American descent. <br />
DEFINITION <br /> Consensus statements from the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology/Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society in 2004, the American Diabetes Association in 2006, and the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes in 2007 defined the following biochemical criteria for the diagnosis of DKA :<br />1-Hyperglycemia, defined as a blood glucose of >200 mg/dL (11 mmol/L) AND <br />2-Metabolic acidosis, defined as a venous pH <7.3 and/or 3-a plasma bicarbonate <15 meq/L (15 mmol/L)<br />
Take home messages <br />1-Not every loose motion and vomiting is a GE. <br />2-If a dehydrated child not responded to fluid therapy , and it is unlikely to be sepsis , ask yourself : is it a DKA ?<br />3-check reflow for pt with ketone positive in the urine . <br />
