Oral versus intravenous: Rehydration preferences of pediatric emergency medicine fellowship directors
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Hemoglobin A, Glycosylated
Relative to AAP recommendations, PEM fellowship directors underuse ORT, especially for moderately dehydrated children. Physician innovativeness does not influence ORT use. Further study of effectiveness, length of stay, staff requirements, and ORT acceptance in the emergency department setting, especially in children with moderate dehydration, may influence ORT use.
