  • Dehydration - The Children's Hospital-Denver
    If your child has fever, diarrhea, or vomiting, or is sweating a lot on a hot day or during intense physical activity, you should watch for signs of dehydration.

  • Dehydration and Diarrhea
    Dehydration is a loss of body fluids, which are made up of water and salts. When sick children vomit or have diarrhea, they can lose large amounts of water from their bodies and can become dehydrated very quickly. Diarrhea is a very common problem in childhood. Usually, it is mild and brief. Sometimes, it can be severe, especially in infants.

  • Preventing Dehydration in Children
    Rehydration fluid continued at home. For moderate or severe dehydration, the child should be treated in a health-care facility.

  • Rehydration Project
    Diarrhoea causes dehydration, which kills approximately 2.2 million children every year. Children are more likely than adults to die from diarrhoea because they become dehydrated more quickly.
