This session will describe the information to be gathered and reviewed before camp and at check in to ensure that every camper is set up for success at your diabetes camp. Pre-camp communication, check in of medications and diabetes supplies, and review of current diabetes management will be discussed.
In this presentation we will discuss the role of diabetes technology at camp and provide basic information on how to deliver insulin for a “bolus” for food or correction and how to access important pump information to help keep campers safe!
The Non-Diabetes Care at Camp will focus on common acute injuries and complaints. The presentation will include discussion of head injury management including concussions and minor head injuries. We will also cover identifying and treating minor extremity injuries and lacerations. Finally, attendees will have the opportunity to hear about rashes they may encounter during camp.
Dr. Jackson will review hypoglycemia at camp (what it is and how is occurs), discuss use of glucagon (when to administer, what products are available), and discuss prevention of lows.
