Boluyt N, 2001;85(2):132–142. Pediatrics. Brody School of Medicine East Carolina University Greenville, NC Common Electrolyte Problems in Pediatrics—Hypernatremia. Nasogastric rehydration therapy is also less expensive than intravenous fluid therapy.18, As soon as children with acute gastroenteritis are rehydrated, a regular age-appropriate diet should be initiated. Friedman JN, 28. 1957;19(5):816–822. Pediatrics. 2004;19(3):364]. Infants are particularly susceptible to the ill effects of dehydration because of their greater baseline fluid requirements (due to a higher metabolic rate), higher evaporative losses (due to a higher ratio of surface area to volume), and … Stephenson T, 1981;98(5):835–838. Children with severe dehydration (eg, evidence of circulatory compromise) should receive fluids IV. The extracellular fluid space has two components: plasma and lymph as a delivery system, and interstitial fluid for solute exchange.13 The goal of rehydration therapy is first to restore the circulating blood volume, if necessary; then to restore the interstitial fluid volume; and finally to maintain hydration and replace continuing losses, such as diarrhea and increased insensible losses caused by fever. Salam MA. Murphy KO. Safety and effectiveness of homemade and reconstituted packet cereal-based oral rehydration solutions: a randomized clinical trial. Pediatrics.

Pediatr Emerg Care. (See also the American Academy of Pediatrics' clinical practice guideline for maintenance IV fluids in children.). † These findings are for patients with a serum sodium level in the normal range; clinical manifestations may differ with hypernatremia and hyponatremia. Sarker SA, Decreased fluid intake is common during mild illnesses such as pharyngitis or during serious illnesses of any kind. Eccleston P, The rotavirus vaccine has … Mondolfi A. DefinitionDefinition is defined as an excessive loss of body fluid & electrolytes. Localio R, Potassium replacement (usually by adding 20 to 40 mEq potassium per liter [20 to 40 mmol/L] of replacement fluid) should not begin until adequate urine output is established.

From developing new therapies that treat and prevent disease to helping people in need, we are committed to improving health and well-being around the world. Laron Z. Fleisher GR, At home, caregivers should provide maintenance therapy and replace ongoing losses every two hours as described for mild dehydration. Werneke U. MMWR Recomm Rep. Mandl KD. for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) release can also occur in response to vascular volume and not osmolarity (nonosmotic ADH release). Five percent dextrose/0.9% saline is given at 40 mL/hour with 20 mEq/L (20 mmol/L) of potassium added when urine output is established. 1999;13(4):292–297. In … The decrease in total body water causes reductions in both the intracellular and extracellular fluid volumes. Change using urine output, and specific gravity (James, Nelson, & Ashwill, 2013). To replace ongoing losses, 10 mL per kg for every loose stool and 2 mL per kg for every episode of emesis should be administered. Get Permissions, Access the latest issue of American Family Physician. UNIT 2 - PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF WATERY DIARRHOEA: DEHYDRATION AND REHYDRATION. Pediatr Emerg Care. If you don't replace lost fluids, you will get dehydrated.Anyone may become dehydrated, but the condition is especially dangerous for young children and older adults. Usefulness of the serum electrolyte panel in the management of pediatric dehydration treated with intravenously administered fluids. The maintenance need for water in parenteral fluid therapy. 26. Offringa M. Pediatrics. DeWalt DA, Oct 04, 2020 water and electrolytes in pediatrics physiology pathophysiology and management Posted By Ann M. MartinPublic Library TEXT ID 7783ca55 Online PDF Ebook Epub Library the prescription of fluid and electrolyte therapy is a common task for the pediatric clinician the clinical situations requiring such therapy are myriad and range from the urgent in cases of children with Clear sodas and juices are not recommended because hyponatremia may occur, This method can be further simplified to provide maintenance ORT at home: 1 oz per hour for infants, 2 oz per hour for toddlers, and 3 oz per hour for older children. Joffe MD, In general, dehydration is defined as follows: Mild: No hemodynamic changes (about 5% body weight in infants and 3% in adolescents), Moderate: Tachycardia (about 10% body weight in infants and 5 to 6% in adolescents), Severe: Hypotension with impaired perfusion (about 15% body weight in infants and 7 to 9% in adolescents). 7. Failure rate of nasogastric tube placement is significantly less than that of intravenous lines, and significant complications of nasogastric tube placement are rare. Byerley JS. 11. Sign up for the free AFP email table of contents. Hypernatremia. The main cause of pediatric hyponatremia is an abundance of free water. Patients may be treated at home.14 If the child vomits, treatment should be resumed after 30 minutes.15  After the four-hour treatment period, maintenance fluids should be given and ongoing losses assessed and replaced every two hours. Oral ondansetron for gastroenteritis in a pediatric emergency department. What is Pediatric Dehydration? Goldman RD, Physical examination findings during dehydration represent desiccation of tissue, the body's compensatory reaction to maintain perfusion, or both. Development of a clinical dehydration scale for use in children between 1 and 36 months of age. Gorelick MH, Stool electrolyte content and purging rates in diarrhea caused by rotavirus, enterotoxigenic. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends oral rehydration therapy (ORT) as the preferred treatment of fluid and electrolyte losses caused by diarrhea in children with mild to moderate dehydration.14 ORT is as effective as intravenous fluid in rehydration of children with mild to moderate dehydration—there is no difference in failure rate or hospital admission rate between the two treatments.15 Additionally, ORT has many advantages compared with intravenous fluid therapy. This change also has the benefit of allowing use of the same fluid to replace ongoing losses and supply maintenance needs, which simplifies management. Dehydration is significant depletion of body water and, to varying degrees, electrolytes. Clear sodas and juices are not recommended because hyponatremia may occur. Fluid resuscitation in neonatal and pediatric hypovolemic shock: a Dutch Pediatric Society evidence-based clinical practice guideline. If dehydration is severe, 3 boluses of 20 mL/kg (6% body weight) may be required. Avner JR. Overdiagnosis of dehydration may lead to unnecessary tests and treatment, whereas underdiagnosis may lead to increased morbidity (e.g., protracted vomiting, electrolyte disturbances, acute renal insufficiency). Meyers A, Hyponatremia results in some fluid shifting out of the intravascular space into the interstitium at the expense of vascular volume. Validation of the clinical dehydration scale for children with acute gastroenteritis. However, children with hypernatremia have better hemodynamics (eg, less tachycardia and better urine output) than do children with hyponatremia, in whom fluid has shifted out of the vascular space. * Standard estimates for children between infancy and adolescence have not been established. 12. Goldman RD, 21. Watery diarrhoea results from disordered water and electrolyte transport in the small intestine. Bresee JS, 2004;291(22):2746–2754. Baseline maintenance requirements by the weight-based Holliday-Segar method are 100 mL/kg × 10 kg = 1000 mL/day = 1000 mL/24 hours or 40 mL/hour. Skin turgor as a quantitative index of dehydration in children. Because 0.45% saline has 77 mEq sodium per liter (77 mmol/L), it is usually an appropriate fluid choice, particularly in children with diarrhea because the electrolyte content of diarrhea is typically 50 to 100 mEq/L (50 to 100 mmol/L—see Table: Estimated Electrolyte Deficits by Cause); 0.9% saline may be used as well. Rapid intravenous rehydration by means of a single polyelectrolyte solution with or without dextrose. afpserv@aafp.org for copyright questions and/or permission requests. Duggan C, Other sources are renal (eg, diabetic ketoacidosis), cutaneous (eg, excessive sweating, burns), and 3rd-space losses (eg, into the intestinal lumen in bowel obstruction or ileus). Pediatrics. The article reviews the pathophysiology of water and sodium metabolism and, it uses the clinical case examples to illustrate the bed-side approach to the management of three different types of … These nutrients include calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphate, potassium and sodium.

Simplified treatment strategies to fluid therapy in diarrhea [published correction appears in. Shaw KN. Recent literature suggests that hospitalized dehydrated children receiving 0.2% saline for maintenance fluid sometimes develop hyponatremia. Seshadri R, Friedman JN, Porter SC, Another way to assess the degree of dehydration in children with acute dehydration is change in body weight; all short-term weight loss > 1%/day is presumed to represent fluid deficit. The fluid used is 5% dextrose/0.45% saline or 5% dextrose/0.9% saline. Oral versus intravenous rehydration of moderately dehydrated children: a randomized, controlled trial. Goldman RD, Bonadio WA. Alessandrini EA, Ahmed SM. Friedman AL, Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ, USA is a global healthcare leader working to help the world be well.

Fluid resuscitation in neonatal and pediatric hypovolemic shock: a Dutch Pediatric Society evidence-based clinical practice guideline. Laboratory predictors of fluid deficit in acutely dehydrated children. At the time this article was written, Dr. Canavan was a pediatric hospitalist at T.C. Clinical findings of dry mucous membranes, poor skin turgor, markedly decreased urine output, and tachycardia with normal blood pressure and capillary refill suggest 10% fluid deficit. 80/No. Practice parameter: the management of acute gastroenteritis in young children. Dehydration is a frequent reason for emergency room visits and affects at least 2 million children annually.1 Frequently caused by gastroenteritis, dehydration may result in serious morbidity and mortality. Gastroenteritis and dehydration account for 30% of all infant and toddler deaths worldwide, and approximately 300 deaths annually in the U.S.2 Gastroenteritis alone results in 1.9 million pediatric deaths annually, or 19% of all deaths under the age of 5.3 Clinically significant dehydration, as used in th… Ray PE, Shaw KN, Because of the fluid shift out of the interstitium into the vascular space, children with hypernatremia appear more ill (eg, with very dry mucous membranes, a doughy appearance to the skin) for a given degree of water loss than do children with hyponatremia. Administration. It is therefore important to … Comparison of nasogastric and intravenous methods of rehydration in pediatric patients with acute dehydration. 1. Treatment is with oral or IV replacement of fluid and electrolytes. Meyers A, However, fluid lost always contains a lower concentration of sodium than the plasma. American Academy of Pediatrics, Provisional Committee on Quality Improvement, Subcommittee on Acute Gastroenteritis. 15. Validity and reliability of clinical signs in the diagnosis of dehydration in children. Shaw KN, Glass R, Steiner MJ, It can be administered at home, reducing the need for outpatient and emergency department visits; requires less emergency department staff time; and leads to shorter emergency department stays. 22. Dehydration is a symptom or sign of another disorder, most commonly diarrhea. David A. Goff, MD 2. Wassner SJ. Avner JR. 2009 Oct 1;80(7):692-696. The following is an English-language resource that may be useful. Adams W, King CK, Dehydration is a general state in which there is a total-body fluid deficit. Cost to the family may be a deterrent to home ORT; therefore, ORT solution provided by the physician's office or emergency department increases the likelihood that parents will use ORT and reduces unscheduled follow-up visits.16, Nasogastric rehydration therapy with ORT solution is an alternative to intravenous fluid therapy in patients with poor oral intake. A single dose of ondansetron (Zofran) may facilitate ORT in children with dehydration. Five percent dextrose/0.45% saline (or 5% dextrose/0.9% saline) also is used to replace ongoing losses; volume and rate are determined by the amount of diarrhea.
