Introduction. There are limited data regarding the incidence, trends, and outcomes of cerebral edema among patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Methods. NIS database was used from year 2002 to 2012. Cases with primary diagnosis of DKA were identified using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision–Clinical Modification (ICD-9 CM) code 250.1 x. Cerebral edema patients were identified using ICD-9 CM code 348.5. We compared the baseline characteristics of both groups to…

Factors Associated With Cerebral Edema at Admission in Indian Children with Diabetic Ketoacidosis
TLDR
Cerebral edema at admission is common in Indian children with DKA and should be suspected with severe metabolic acidosis and inappropriate prior fluid treatment.
Clinical, and Biochemical Profile of Pediatric Diabetic Ketoacidosis Patients in Al-zahraa Hospital Pediatric ICU
TLDR
DKA was most prevalent in newly diagnosed T1DM cases, andfections was the most common precipitating factors.
Risk factors for cerebral oedema in children and adolescents with diabetic ketoacidosis
TLDR
Severe ketoacidosis, hyperglycaemia and dehydration at presentation, and low serum phosphate during treatment are significantly related to CO formation in children with DKA.
Management of diabetic ketoacidosis in children and spectrum of complications in the pediatric intensive care unit
TLDR
DKA was found as one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in diabetic children, especially those with type 1 diabetes due to the development of cerebral edema as a complication of DKA.
Temporal patterns of hospitalizations for diabetic ketoacidosis in children and adolescents
TLDR
Marked disparities were noted in the increasing hospitalization burden of DKA, born predominantly by racial and ethnic minorities, as well as by the underinsured and the uninsured.
Seasonal variation and severity of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in patients at a tertiary care hospital in Pakistan
TLDR
Seasonal variation and peaked cases of Diabetic Ketoacidosis in the winter season presenting at a tertiary care hospital in Pakistan was found and noncompliance was found to be major contributory factor.
Diabetic ketoacidosis in Saudi Arabia: factors precipitating initial admission and readmission
TLDR
Treatment nonadherence is the leading precipitating factor of DKA in Saudi Arabia and patient education and counseling play a major role in addressing this preventable complication and its medical and financial burden.
Brain injury in children with diabetic ketoacidosis: Review of the literature and a proposed pathophysiologic pathway for the development of cerebral edema
TLDR
This review critically examines the literature on the pathophysiology of CE and attempts to categorize the findings by types of brain injury that contribute to its development: cytotoxic, vasogenic, and osmotic.
Clinical Trial of Fluid Infusion Rates for Pediatric Diabetic Ketoacidosis
TLDR
Neither the rate of administration nor the sodium chloride content of intravenous fluids significantly influenced neurologic outcomes in children with diabetic ketoacidosis.
Management of severe inaugural diabetic ketoacidosis in paediatric intensive care: retrospective comparison of two protocols
TLDR
Two paediatric DKA-management protocols differing in terms of fluid-volume, glucose, and sodium intakes had comparable effects on clinical and laboratory-test changes within 24 h, and Cerebral oedema was rare with both protocols and caused no lasting impairments.

Factors associated with adverse outcomes in children with diabetic ketoacidosis-related cerebral edema.
TLDR
Intubation with hyperventilation is associated with adverse outcomes of DKA-related cerebral edema and greater neurologic depression at the time of diagnosis and a higher initial serum urea nitrogen concentration are associated with poor outcome.
Risk factors for cerebral edema in children with diabetic ketoacidosis. The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Collaborative Research Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
TLDR
Children with diabetic ketoacidosis who have low partial pressures of arterial carbon dioxide and high serum urea nitrogen concentrations at presentation and who are treated with bicarbonate are at increased risk for cerebral edema.
The risk and outcome of cerebral oedema developing during diabetic ketoacidosis
TLDR
This first large population based study of cerebral oedema complicating diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) has produced risk estimates which are more reliable and less susceptible to bias than those from previous studies.
Improving management of diabetic ketoacidosis in children.
TLDR
A DKA protocol that necessitates less fluid delivery and fewer calculations simplifies therapy and is associated with more rapid correction of acidosis.
Diabetic ketoacidosis in infants, children, and adolescents: A consensus statement from the American Diabetes Association.
TLDR
Infants and toddlers in DKA may be misdiagnosed as having pneumonia, reactive airways disease (asthma), or bronchiolitis and therefore treated with glucocorticoids and/or sympathomimetic agents that only compound and exacerbate the metabolic derangements.
Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Infants, Children, and Adolescents
TLDR
Infants and toddlers in DKA may be misdiagnosed as having pneumonia, reactive airways disease (asthma), or bronchiolitis and therefore treated with glucocorticoids and/or sympathomimetic agents that only compound and exacerbate the metabolic derangements.
Diabetic ketoacidosis and cerebral edema
TLDR
Treatment for cerebral edema in children presenting in diabetic ketoacidosis should be a combination of intravenous fluid and insulin that results in a gradual reduction of the effective osmolarity over a 36- to 48-hour period, thereby avoiding rapid expansion of the ICF compartment and brain swelling.

TLDR
The extent of potentially preventable hospitalizations associated with uncontrolled diabetes and its economic burden in the U.S. remains under-investigated.
