A pharmacist's guide to DKA
I work with some incredible people at my job. The other day I came into work and stumbled upon this gem:
How amazing is that? Our wonderful and incredible pharmacists have been updating the board weekly with lovely pharmacology pearls and I was fortunate enough to get their permission to repost the material on my blog-- it seems unfair that only one emergency department is the recipient of their compounded knowledge.
And if you happen to be someone who does not learn from visual stimuli, I made the below fun (and downloadable) crossword puzzle based on the same information.
Go, treat some DKA!
