Final Comment

The development of safe and effective ORT and home made fluids have dramatically changed the management of acute diarrhea in children. Intravenous fluids and antibiotics should be judiciously used.

Antimotility and anti diarrheal agents are contraindicated. With patient education, use and application of ORT in clinical practices, family physicians can reduce out patient morbidity and provide cost effective treatment.
