Handling Infusion Of Drinking Water By Children Aged 8 Years?
If the infusion water is drunk a little by a child aged 8 years, how is it handled?
Good morning Yanti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Infusion fluids are fluids that are inserted through a vein in patients who are hospitalized. Infusion fluids are usually placed in bottles and can contain sugar, electrolytes, or drugs that are tailored to the patient's needs. Not all patients require infusions, and patients are usually given infusions with the aim of controlling the fluid levels in their bodies.
Regarding the case of your child, even though it is not intended to be drunk, if it is only taken a little it should not pose any danger. However, it is relatively small and what is worrying is if the infusion was inserted into the drug which was originally intended for the patient. So to avoid misunderstandings, you should consult a general practitioner with the infusion bottle to further ensure that there is no possibility for unwanted things to happen.
However, if your child complains of symptoms such as abdominal pain, dizziness, pounding, nausea and vomiting or others, then immediately go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital for further treatment. Meanwhile, continue to give your child drinking water or food as usual and do not need to give any medicine without doctor's advice. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
So, hopefully useful.
