  • 21. 2. Malnutrition Diarrhea makes the small intestinal villi damaged andunable to absorb nutrients and thus making them proneto more infections (Vicious Cycle)
  • 22. Symptoms Fever Loose stools (frequency and consistency) Water/mucoid/blood stained Vomiting and nausea Generalized body ache Reduced UOP (<5 times per day/<5ml/kg/hr) Dizziness/feeling
  • 23. Signs Feberile (>98.4 F) Dehydrated (eyes, tongue and skin tugor) CRFT<2 seconds Pulse rate (tachycardia) BP (diastolic rise, and then systolic fall) Pulse pressure narrowing (<20mmhg) Altered level of consciousness

  • 27. Oral Rehydration Salts (Jeevani) Water absorption happens in the small intestine via anosmotic gradient created by Na and Cl
  • 28.  Sodium absorption happens by, Glucose mediated sodium absorption (coupled path) Sodium ion coupled as double exchange Diarrhea does not impair these path
  • 29.  ORS contains constituents which increase theabsorption of water, replace potassium lost in stoolsand correct acidosis NaCl KCl Na Citrate (counter acidosis) Glucosewww.doctordinusha.infoNa 75mmol/lCl 65mmol/lGlucose 75mmol/lK 20mmol/lCitrate 10mmol
  • 30. Preparation and storage of ORS Add all contents to 1 l of boiled water (some packetscan be dissolved in less amount of water) Avoid adding extra sugar or salt Once prepared keep only for 24
  • 31. Principles of Diarrhea Management Correct dehydration Maintenance of hydration Provide electrolytes Correct acidosis Antibiotic therapy when needed Re colonization with normal
  • 32. Special Precautions Assess every 4 hours Stop it if the child is having swollen eyelids (continuewith breast milk and plain water) Don’t if vomiting Don’t if lethargic or drowsy (take the child to thehospital)
  • 33. Managing a child/adult withdiarrhea without dehydration Main aim is to replace the ongoing fluid andelectrolyte losses and to supply the daily maintenance Ongoing loss : Per each loose motion give 100-200 ml of ORS (<2yrold=100ml, >2yr old=200, teen = as much as they want)
  • 34.  Daily maintenance of fluids : Using the Holliday & Segar formula,
  • 35. Managing a child/adult withdiarrhea with some dehydration Better to be managed at the hospital setting The fluid loss has to be replenished by ORS, calculated as,Wt(Kg) * 75ml/kgIn initial 4 hours Reassessment is needed to decide on further Mx. The maintenance is calculated with the Holliday and

  • 37. Further points in management1. Oral fluids ORS Rice Kanjee Rice water (salted) King coconut water Soup (vegetable/chicken soup-salted)2. Continue breast feeding3. Probiotic/Prebiotic mixtures (Bifilac/Prezolac)4. Multivitamins with Zinc
  • 38. 5. Antibiotics if suspecting bacterial or dysentery(furazolidone/cephalosporin)6. Continue with normal feeds Yoghurt Protein rich

  • 40. Summary Diarrhea is a real problem, especially for children (<5yr olds) Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) are a major find incombating diarrheal diseases Proper diagnosis and assessment of dehydration isrequired Proper rehydration method is needed Proper supportive therapy is needed EIC methodologies are needed (Not limited to papers,radio or TV now)
