Right amount of detail for a review course

Clear and concise! Markedly improved my understanding of DKA. Treat the anion gap acidosis, not the glucose.
The courses are very clear whilst remaining detailed to be able to really understand the to-ice well. The re-clarifications help the key messages get absorbed. Overall I feel very grateful for being able to access such a high-level of concise information for free or for a very modest price. Thank you for having such a positive impact on my patient care.
Explained clearly & concisely. Good time limit
VERONICA MCDONOUGH, NP
SANJEEV KUMAR, MD
ROBERTO E VILLARREAL, MD
That was a great and through review of the pathophysiology of DKA. Thank you for the refresher!
As a paramedic, this has never been explained to me in this type of detail. We focus on the simple processes, not the fatty acids. This course really improved my understanding of this process!

GERGANA PETKOVA, MD

Greater understanding of DKA. Hope all hospitals would follow this pathway of keeping the insulin drip at a set rate based on the person's weight instead of titrating. Thank you.

The best explanation on DKA I have ever heard! No blah, blah, blah. Just the facts, clear &; concise. Thank you!
Absolutely wonderful lectures that give me good explanation. Specific thanks to the lecturer.
WOW! I am a Certified Nurse Specialist and your videos on DKA are just awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge in a way that is clear and understandable!
I have been working in the ER for 3 years and I know how to treat DKA, but today for first time I started to know why I treat it and how everything is related, thx doctor really appreciated.
Excellent review. Gets into the details enough to make it meaningful to where you can remember it and it's useful, but not so much that it gets lost in the weeds and feels unwieldly. I find the physiology is taught in a way that is very relevant clinically, and the lecture style and drawings are helpful (dare I say fun?). DKA education has a penchant for tedious but not here. Highly recommend.

When a pt comes in identify why they are in DKA. Start with IVF and Insulin drip. Follow up labs. When out of DKA - Give SC Insulin and turn off drip 2 hours later.
