Abstract The article discusses the evaluation of dehydration in children and reviews the literature on physical findings of dehydration. Pediatric dehydration is a common problem in emergency departments and wide practice variation in treatment exists. Dehydration can be treated with oral, nasogastric, subcutaneous, or intravenous fluids. Although oral rehydration is underutilized in the United States, most children with dehydration can be successfully rehydrated via the oral route. Selection of oral rehydration solution and techniques for successful oral rehydration are presented. Appropriate selection and rate o...

Authors: Ishioka M, Watanabe N, Sawaguchi M, Fukuda S, Shiga H, Matsuhashi T, Jin M, Iijima K Abstract Phlegmonous gastritis is a rare but often fatal acute pyogenic infection of the stomach. We herein report three cases of phlegmonous gastritis with different causes: the long-term placement of a nasogastric feeding tube, bacteremia associated with cellulitis in a diabetic patient, and an adverse reaction to paclitaxel/carboplatin chemotherapy for cancer of unknown primary cause, which were classified as primary, secondary, and idiopathic types, respectively. Coping with the increasing morbidity rate associated wit...
