Brief Summary:
  • There is no definite tool for measurement of dehydration in children
  • Subjective clinical dehydration scale is considered as valuable scoring system, but it cannot be reliable among clinicians sometimes.
  • Some authors found Inferior vena cava/Aorta ratio can be a objective marker for dehydration
  • However, there is no evidence of correlation between clinical dehydration scale and inferior vena cava/aorta ratio
  • We will observe correlation between clinical dehydration scale and inferior vena cava/aorta ratio and change of the ratio according to hydration with intravenous normal saline infusion.
