Transcript

  • 1. Gastroenteritis in Children ByBy Dr. Youssef QudaDr. Youssef Quda MSc. PediatricsMSc. Pediatrics www.facebook.com/dryousefqudawww.facebook.com/dryousefquda
  • 2. Definition:  Passage of 3 or more watery loose motions per day. Increased volume, fluidity, or frequency of motions relative to the usual pattern of individual (WHO).
  • 3. Classification of Diarrhea  Acute diarrhea: Short in duration (less than 2 weeks) Watery without visible blood.  Chronic diarrhea: 6 weeks or more Persistent diarrhea: > 14 days
  • 4. Causes of Gastroenteritis Viral: (60% of cases) Rota virus, Norwalk virus Adenovirus , Enteroviruses Bacterial: Salmonella, shigella, enteroinvasive E coli Enterhemorrhgic E coli Parasitic: Giardia , Entameoba histolytica,cryptosprodium parvum.
  • 5. Causes of Gastroenteritis Viral: (60% of cases) Rota virus, Norwalk virus Adenovirus , Enteroviruses  Criteria: -Age less than 2 years. - common in winter. - associated with URTI. - pyrexia < 38.5C
  • 6. Causes of Gastroenteritis Viral: (60% of cases) Rota virus, Norwalk virus Adenovirus , Enteroviruses  Criteria: - Diarrhea is: 1. mild to moderate. 2. transient (5-7days). 3. watery 4. odorless
  • 7. Causes of Gastroenteritis Bacterial: Salmonella, shigella, enteroinvasive E coli Enterhemorrhgic E coli  Criteria: - Common in summer - With high fever - Cramping abdominal pain
  • 8. Causes of Gastroenteritis Parasitic: 1. Giardia Lambelia -watery - offensive - no fever nor vomiting 2. Entameaba histolytica - Bloody ± tenesmus - no fever nor vomiting 3. Cryptospordium parvum - watery with fever and vomiting
  • 9. Mechanisms of Diarrhea  Osmotic  Secretory  Exudative  Motility disorders
  • 10. Mechanisms of Diarrhea  Osmotic Defect present: Digestive enzyme deficiencies Ingestion of unabsorbable solute Examples: Viral infection Lactase deficiency Sorbitol/magnesium sulfate Infections Comments: Stop with fasting No stool WBCs
  • 11. Mechanisms of Diarrhea  Increased motility: Defect: Decreased transit time Example: Irritable bowel syndrome
  • 12. Mechanisms of Diarrhea  Exudative Diarrhea: Defects: Inflammation Decreased colonic reabsorption Increased motility Examples: Bacterial enteritis Comments: Blood, mucus and WBCs in stool
  • 13. Mechanisms of Diarrhea  Secretory: Defect: Increased secretion Decreased absorption Examples: Cholera Toxinogenic E.coli Comments: Persists during fasting No stool leukocytes
  • 14. Mechanisms of Diarrhea E. Coli bacteria •Contaminated food or water •Usually affect small kids
  • 15. Mechanisms of Diarrhea Salmonella enteritidis bact •In contaminated raw or undercooked chicken and eggs
  • 16. Bacterial enterocolitis  Sign of inflammation – blood or pus in stool, fever Shigella bacteria Campylobacter bacteria
  • 17. Cryptosporidium • in contaminated water – can survive chlorination Parasites Giardia lamblia • in contaminated water •Usually not associated with inflammation
  • 18. • Food Poisoning Staphylococcus aureus • Produces toxins in food before it is eaten •Usually food contaminated left unrefrigerated overnight
  • 19. • Food Poisoning Clostridium perfringens • Multiplies in food •Produces toxins in SI after contaminated food is eaten
  • 20. Acute non infectious diarrhea 1.Dietetic: overfeeding, hyperactive gastrocolic reflex, bad feeding, starvation diarrhea. 2.Drugs: Oral antibiotics, laxatives. 3.Parentral diarrhea (2ry GE) - infection outside GIT (AOM)
  • 21. Complications of Diarrhea  Dehydration  Metabolic Acidosis  Acute Renal Failure.  Shock  Electrolyte disturbance.  Convulsions.  CNS infections: meningitis & encephalitis.  Malnutrition (PCM).
  • 22. Complications of Diarrhea 1.Dehydration -Due to vomiting & diarrhea -The main cause of death in GE. -Other causes: 1. hyperventilation 2. Excessive sweating 3. burn 4. polyuria
  • 23. Degree of Dehydration Factors Mild < 5% Moderate 5-10% Severe >10% General Condition Well, alert Restless, thirsty, irritable Drowsy, cold extremities, lethargic Eyes Normal Sunken Very sunken, dry Anterior fontanelle Normal depressed Very depressed Tears Present Absent Absent Mouth + tongue Moist Sticky Dry Skin turgor Slightly decrease Decreased Very decreased Pulse (N=110- 120 beat/min) Slightly increase Rapid, weak Rapid, sometime impalpable BP (N=90/60 mm Hg) Normal Deceased Deceased, may be unrecordable Respiratory rate Slightly increased Increased Deep, rapid Normal Reduced Markedly reduced
  • 24. Types of dehydration Isotonic (isonatremic) Hypertonic (hypernatremic) Hypotonic (hyponatremic) Loses H2O = Na H2O > Na H2O < Na Plasma osmolality Normal Increase Decrease Serum Na Normal Increase Decrease ECV ICV Decrease maintained Decrease Decrease +++ Decrease +++ Increase Thirst ++ +++ +/- Skin turgor ++ Not lost +++ Mental state Irritable/lethargic Very irritable Lethargy/coma shock In severe cases Uncommon Common
  • 25. Examination
  • 26. Complications of dehydration 1.Shock 2. Acute Renal Failure 3. Metabolic acidosis 4. Electrolyte disturbance 5. Convulsions 6. DIC 7. Metabolic alkalosis
  • 27. Complications of Diarrhea 2. Shock: - types (hypovolemic & septic) - Clinically: 1. hypotension and rapid pulse 2. Decreased vital organ perfusion 3. Decreased peripheral perfusion
  • 28. Complications of Diarrhea 3. Acute renal failure: - due to: hypovolemia & untreated pre-renal failure - Clinically: 1. oliguria 2. edema 3. acidotic breathing
  • 29. Complications of Diarrhea 4. Metabolic acidosis: - due to: loss of HCO3 in stool & ARF - Clinically: 1. disturbed consciousness 2. altered blood gases( --ph& --Paco2& --hco3) 3. acidotic breathing
  • 30. Complications of Diarrhea 5. Convulsions: - due to: 1.Hypoglycemia 2.Febrile convulsions 3.CNS infections 4.Hypocalcaemia 5.Brain edema
  • 31. Complications of Diarrhea 6. CNS infection: - due to meningitis & Encephalitis 7. Electrolyte Disturbance a. Hypokalemia b. Hypocalcaemia c. Hyponatremia
  • 32. Complications of Diarrhea 8. Bleedig: - due to DIC & RVT& Intussusception & Hypoprothrombinemia 9. PCM (malnutrition) 10. Persistent diarrhea
