  @future2017: Everything is perfect. The only thing to add is continue with NS until the fingerstick is 200 and above. Once FS is comes to 200 or less then switch to D5w with half NS.
Than until Anion gap closes continue with IV insulin.
After that let IV insulin and subQ insulin overlap for at least overlap for 2 hours then DC IV insulin.
Your sequence is perfect.

  The Sequence matters, right? Silly qs, sorry, ofc, it would matter, b/c in a way, the sequence reflects your approach to the case, right? (which is what you are scored on)
