from January 2004 to April 2005 aimed to discover whether administration of oral ondansetron to pediatric patients with gastroenteritis would decrease symptoms of vomiting and dehydration. The 215 patients who met the study’s inclusion criteria received either oral ondansetron (2, 4, or 8 mg ODT based on weight) or placebo followed by one hour of Enfalyte 30 mL every 5 minutes as oral rehydration therapy 15 minutes after dose administration. Those patients who vomited within 15 minutes received another dose of medication. A physician followed up with the patients after oral rehydration therapy and a decision to start intravenous therapy was made. The primary endpoint of the study was the proportion of pediatric patients who vomited while receiving oral rehydration therapy among those who received ondansetron or placebo.

People diagnosed with anaphylaxis must be self informed and have an action plan in place, in case of an anaphylactic attack.
People who have been diagnosed with asthma need to take long-term control medication. These medications reduce airway inflammation and help prevent symptoms from occurring.

CIWA-Ar is a 10-item scale which numerically scores the severity of a patient’s nausea, sweating, agitation, headache, anxiety, tremor, sensory disturbances (visual, tactile, and auditory), and orientation23 to determine appropriate benzodiazepine dose. It is usually administered by a nurse and takes only a minute or two to complete. There is a maximum of 67 points and a score >18 indicates a patient is at severe risk for major alcohol withdrawal complications.5 Patients with scores <8 may be reevaluated every 8 hours, however patients with higher CIWA scores will need to be reevaluated more frequently depending on worsening or improving symptoms, sometimes requiring hourly assessments..
