M father of 2 years old baby boy
he is not keeping well for the past 4 days
What is wrong?
its close to midnight.. he is vomiting like his lungs will come out..
Is he able to hold any food down?
im seriously concerned
he has not taken any solid food for the last 2 days..
i understand its late, but if he is in such a state, its time to take him to emergency room and get iv fluids put in
this evening i took him to doctor again and she prescribed few syrups to give him very 4 hrs
the moment he takes the syrup , he vomits again
Nothing i can tell you here will resolve this quickly enough
he will need an iv line then
I'm just confused whether to take him to hospital now or wait until morning
Does that make sense?
so thought of seeking your advice
now, do not delay
2 day without adequate nutrition is worrisome
he most likely has a bacterial infection, the ER will give him direct iv antibiotics and an anti nausea med
is it ok to go for iv for a 2 years baby ?
I'm sorry i can't be of furthur help, but i do not wish to take any chances
yes, i've seen many, they will calculate the dosages based on his weight
Alright doc, Thanks
