Description:

While I was on my recent pediatrics rotation at medical school, I must have seen about 20 children present to the emergency department with the manifestations of dehydration owing to acute diarrhea. In line with World Health Organization guidelines, these children's dehydration status was categorized into three grades: none, mild, and severe, corresponding to dehydration 8% of body weight, respectively. It is now well established that the best treatment for the majority of dehydration, especially in the mild category, is to give hypoosmolar oral rehydration solution.
