    First Aid on Diarrhea

    Diarrhea is a disorder in which the stool or feces turned into soft or liquid at least 3 times in 24 hours. There are many things that can cause diarrhea, such as food poisoning, eating certain foods, one taking medication, stress, alcohol, bacterial infections and others.

    If the patient is still able to drink, then the fluids lost can be replaced. But if the patient does not want to drink and frequent vomiting, then rapidly lost body fluids and there will be symptoms of dehydration.

    According to Stanley M. Zildo as quoted from his book entitled 'First Aid, How to Properly First Aid and Emergency', prolonged diarrhea can be fatal, especially if the baby suffered. 

    To deal with diarrhea, do first aid as follows:1. Give plenty of water to replace fluids and body chemicals were missing. Drink fluids every 2 hours of approximately 2 ounces or 60 mL.

    2. If the diarrhea lasts longer, for example, 1 -2 days and reduced the number and frequency of urination, immediately take the patient to the hospital due to possible dehydration.

    3. Avoid solid foods.
