Random Wikipedia subject discovery Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a potentially life-threatening complication in people with diabetes mellitus. It happens predominantly in those with type 1 diabetes, but it can occur in those with type 2 diabetes under certain circumstances. DKA results from a shortage of insulin; in response the body switches to burning fatty acids and producing acidic ketone bodies that cause most of the symptoms and complications.[1] DKA may be the first symptom of previously undiagnosed diabetes, but it may also occur in people known to have diabetes as a result of a variety of causes, such as intercurrent illness or poor compliance with insulin therapy. Vomiting, dehydration, deep gasping breathing, confusion and occasionally coma are typical symptoms. DKA is diagnosed with blood and urine tests; it is distinguished from other, rarer forms of ketoacidosis by the presence of high blood sugar levels. DKA is a medical emergency, and without treatment it can lead to death. Signs and symptoms[edit]

The Official Mobile App for Moodle is OUT NOW | Moodle News | moodle2 Best Embeds for Moodle, Wikis, and Blogs Apr26 Now that you and/or your students are using wikis and blogs, are you curious what could be added to them? From animated slideshows to collaborative documents to interactive review games, many great (and free) tools are available. As a follow up to my previous post “What Teachers Should and Should Not Be Posting on their Classroom Webpages”, I’ve pulled a master list of embedding options that will hopefully spark your imagination. As you browse the list consider how you will use these embeds. While some of these work perfectly for classroom blog posts, others tend to be more effective wiki tools. One note of warning, however. Good luck and again if you have any other suggestions please post them in the comments section. Collaborative Project Tools aMap is an excellent tool for social studies projects.

How to Get in Touch With Loved Ones During a Disaster | Gadget Lab Photo: Alex Washburn/Wired Disasters often strike without warning–and if you have family or friends who are in or near harm’s way, you’re going to want to get in touch. Unfortunately, that isn’t always so easy: Cell signals and land lines can be jammed with the massive amount of calls flowing in and out of an area. Here are some of the best tips we know for getting in touch, but this is by no means a complete list. Don’t call. Additional tips: Use a battery case for your smartphone–that thing can’t make it through a whole day when it’s not constantly scanning for a signal. Also, be sure to keep your emergency contact list up to date. Again, please share your tips in the comments below.

Review: Course Menu Block for Moodle 2.0 Course Menu Todays review Module is an old favourite that has been updated to Moodle 2 – Moodle 2.0 Course Menu Block which is available for both Moodle 1.9 and Moodle 2.0 Background This block has been around for nearly 4 years, and worked on Moodle 1.6 onwards providing an in-course navigation block and was one block I strongly recommended for Moodle 1.9 to help manage that old bugbear the “scrollofdeath”. It is submitted by Alex Contis and maintained by NetSapiensis AB Moodle Partner. What does it do? The block gives the users easy access to jump to sections of the course without having to scroll around in addition to some extra links providing the user a quick way to navigate around their Moodle. In 1.9 in automatically grabbed the topic summary and used it as the name of the topic link, and in Moodle 2 it takes the name of the topic summary which is a good improvement. Is it simple to install? You need to upload the course_menu folder to your blocks folder in your Moodle site.
