East of England Paediatric Diabetes Network - Management of Children and Adolescents with Diabetes Requiring Elective or Emergency Surgery and Other Procedures

During surgery or other procedures under sedation or anaesthesia, the aim is to maintain normal glycaemic control with optimal hydration while preventing hypoglycaemia. These guidelines are based on the International Society of Paediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) clinical practice consensus guidelines. Modifications have been made in the light of recently published adult guidelines and from the guidelines published in the anaesthetic literature. They aim to ensure quality of patient care is standardised but individual units may make adjustments to fit with local practice.
