Making sure your child takes in an adequate amount of fluids everyday is important to their overall health and well-being, as well as the function of key organs and systems in their growing bodies. Adequate hydration is vital to brain function and development, as well as important to the vascular system and ensuring proper absorption of key nutrients so that your child’s body can develop and mature properly.
Sometimes, despite your best efforts to ensure your child drinks enough fluids, other factors can cause them to suffer from dehydration. When this happens, it is very important to ensure they receive the care and treatment they need as quickly as possible. At Night Lite Pediatrics Urgent Care, our experienced doctors and medical professionals can offer advanced dehydration treatments to help your child feel better and get back to living an active life as quickly as possible.

When your child suffers from acute gastroenteritis, the vomiting and diarrhea can sometimes lead to dehydration. At Night Lite Pediatrics Urgent Care, we offer oral rehydration and anti-vomiting medication that can significantly increase the amount of fluids your child is able to maintain, in addition working to control the symptoms that can make your child uncomfortable. Antiemetics such as Zofran can be extremely effective in controlling vomiting. Our pediatricians can also offer intravenous fluids to help rehydrate children who suffer from more intense dehydration symptoms. For children who are suffering from abdominal pain, we can perform digital x-rays onsite, as well as offer referrals for ultrasounds or CT scans if necessary.
When your child begins vomiting or exhibiting diarrhea, it is very important to monitor them for signs of dehydration. These signs include extreme fatigue, dry skin, decreased volume or very yellow urine, increased thirst, headache and dizziness, as well as dry mouth. It is vital for parents to be able to understand their child’s normal function so that dehydration symptoms can be noticed early and brought to the attention of an experienced pediatrician. When symptoms of dehydration are noticed, every attempt should be made to rehydrate them as quickly as possible. Prolonged dehydration can be dangerous, and even deadly if left untreated for too long.
