This guideline covers diagnosis, assessment of dehydration, fluid management, nutritional management and the role of antibiotics and other therapies.
This guideline was produced by the National Collaborating Centre for Women’s and Children’s Health (NCC-WCH) on behalf of the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
It provides recommendations on the advice to be given to parents and carers, and also considers when care should be escalated - from home management through to hospital admission.
