  author={Fatihi Hassan Soliman Toaimah and Hala M F Mohammad},
  journal={Pediatric Emergency Care},
Background Rapid intravenous (IV) rehydration is commonly used for the management of pediatric gastroenteritis in the emergency department. The current practice shows wide variation in the volume and rate of rapid IV hydration. The aim of this review was to assess the efficacy of rapid IV rehydration compared with standard method in children with gastroenteritis. Method MEDLINE (1946–2014), EMBASE (1974–2014), and CENTRAL via the Cochrane Library (Issue 8, 2014) were systematically searched to… Expand
Rapid intravenous rehydration of children with acute gastroenteritis and dehydration: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Despite wide implementation of WHO Plan C guideline for severe AGE, no clinical evaluation in resource-limited settings, and only limited evaluation of the rate and volume of rehydration in other parts of the world is found. Expand
Gastroenteritis Aggressive Versus Slow Treatment For Rehydration (GASTRO). A pilot rehydration study for severe dehydration: WHO plan C versus slower rehydration
Results from this pilot will contribute to generating robust definitions of outcomes (in particular for non-mortality endpoints) for a larger Phase III trial of rehydration management guidelines for children with acute gastroenteritis and severe dehydration. Expand
Paediatrics: how to manage viral gastroenteritis
Acute viral gastroenteritis is associated with substantial morbidity in developed countries and significant mortality in developing countries, and Physicians should educate caregivers on proper personal hygiene and handwashing to prevent faecal to oral transmission of the pathogen. Expand
Gastroenteritis aggressive versus slow treatment for rehydration (GASTRO): a phase II rehydration trial for severe dehydration: WHO plan C versus slow rehydration
A multi-centre open-label phase II randomised controlled trial evaluated two rehydration strategies in 122 Ugandan/Kenyan children with severe dehydration secondary to gastroenteritis, finding slower re hydration over 8 hours appears to be safe, easier to implement than plan C. Expand

Rapid Intravenous Rehydration to Correct Dehydration and Resolve Vomiting in Children with Acute Gastroenteritis
Rapid intravenous rehydration in children with moderate dehydration and vomiting due to gastroenteritis is effective in reducing admission rates in the ED. Expand

There are no relevant clinical benefits from the administration of rapid rather than standard intravenous rehydration to haemodynamically stable children deemed to require intravenousRehydration. Expand
Comparison of ultrarapid and rapid intravenous hydration in pediatric patients with dehydration.
Based on this pilot study, ultrarapid hydration for 1 hour preliminarily appears to be an efficacious alternative to standard rapid hydration in pediatric patients with acute gastroenteritis and moderate dehydration and improves emergency department throughput time. Expand
Managing acute gastroenteritis among children: oral rehydration, maintenance, and nutritional therapy.
The historical background and scientific basis of ORT is reviewed and a framework for assessing and treating infants and children who have acute diarrhea is provided, especially regarding continued feeding. Expand
The treatment of pediatric gastroenteritis: a comparative analysis of pediatric emergency physicians' practice patterns.
The treatment of pediatric gastroenteritis varies by geographic location and differs significantly between Canadian and American PEM physicians, and oral rehydration continues to be underused. Expand
Intravenous dextrose for children with gastroenteritis and dehydration: a double-blind randomized controlled trial.
Administration of a dextrose-containing bolus compared with normal saline did not lead to a lower rate of hospitalization for children with gastroenteritis and dehydration, and there was, however, a greater reduction in serum ketone levels in patients who received 5%dextrose in normal saline solution.

Pediatric rapid fluid resuscitation
Intravenous and enteral fluid resuscitation is most commonly used for children with moderate-to-severe dehydration, or for patients in shock to restore circulation, and in the mildly to moderately dehydrated child, enteralflu resuscitation with the aid of an antiemetic such as ondansetron can be as effective and efficient as intravenous fluid resuscitate. Expand
Advances in pediatric dehydration therapy
Dehydration burdens the healthcare system worldwide and through advances in its assessment, treatment with antiemetics and intravenous fluids, and standardization of practice with clinical guidelines, this burden could be reduced. Expand
