Keep a broad differential in pediatric altered mental status.
Be systematic in your approach to pediatric AMS.
Avoid common pitfalls in management such as:
- Assuming no head trauma b/c none stated
- Failing to secure airway prior to imaging/ transport
- Assuming no toxin b/c none stated in history
- Forgetting to check the glucose!
