Endocrine disorders, specifically for pediatric patients, pose complex considerations in care based on the type of disorder and an individual’s course of therapy. For this reason, Children’s Mercy manages programs across the region, providing endocrinology care from western Kansas to south central Missouri. When a pediatric patient with an endocrine disorder requires emergency assistance in the pre-hospital setting, rapid intervention is necessary. In this segment, Children’s Mercy Endocrinologist, Dr. Ryan McDonough, will offer life-saving guidance on treating this population of pediatric patients.
