Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Emergency Department Bedside Ultrasound measurement of the Inferior Vena Cava and Abdominal Aorta. Method involves measuring antero-posterior and transverse diameters using a single transverse ultrasound view in the supine position. Procedure takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
Assessment is performed upon admission to the emergency department and upon discharge from hospital and compared to their measured dehydration as defined by admission and discharge weights.

Summary
Brief summary
The study is designed to assess the usefulness of ultrasound measurement of inferior vena cava:aorta diameter in assessing dehydration. Children with diabetic ketoacidosis are chosen because they are reliably dehydrated. Dehydration is being quantified by weight measurements at the same time as ultrasound assessment - upon admission and discharge.
