    Hey Anton, thanx for your incredible med-education.
    Quick question: paeds sepsis digest you guys incl intubation with consideration of Atropine as premedication. Would you consider Atropine in that cerebral oedema child in DKA that you also have to Intubate ?

    Atropine is optional for Pediatric premedication in intubation. There is only observational data for improving admission to hospital. For those pts who you anticipate bradycardia, I would recommend it. For cerebral edema, if Cushing’s response a possibility, then I would recommend it. Remember to use 0.02mg/kg as lower doses have been associated with worse outcomes.
