Resumen

CORONEL CARBAJAL, Carlos. Problemas identificados en el manejo de la enfermedad diarreica aguda. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.4, pp.340-345. ISSN 0864-2125.

A cross-sectional study was conducted at the "Armando E. Cardoso" Hospital from May, 1998, to February,1999. 256 mothers of children with acute diarrhea were surveyed in order to identify the inappropiate costums that still exist in the ambulatory management of diarrheal diseases. A poor food management was observed in 56.3% of the patients and only 12.1% of the mothers looked for medical advice during the first 24 hours. It was possible to know through this study that 100% of the mothers know that oral rehydration solutions (ORS) are part of the treatment of ADD, but only 42% know that the drug also prevents dehydration. Just 25% know about other fluids that replace the use of oral rehydration solutions

Palabras clave : DIARRHEA, INFANTILE [epidemiology]; FLUID THERAPY; PRIMARY HEALTH CARE.
