What should be the first aid for acetonemic syndrome in children? When a crisis occurs in a child, measures must be taken immediately to improve the patient's well-being. Those parents who do not have experience in stopping syndromes should call a doctor at home. Especially, one cannot do without medical help if an acetonemic attack occurred in a very small child (1-4 years old). If there is any doubt, it is also necessary to call an ambulance, because acetonemic syndrome is often confused with various infectious diseases that are very dangerous. And the doctor who came to the call will determine whether there is a need for hospitalization and the appointment of additional therapy. The initial treatment is to desolder the child, that is, he must drink plenty of fluids. Sweet strong tea will be an excellent remedy, however, it should be drunk slowly and in small sips so as not to cause vomiting.
A portioned intake of fluid is well absorbed by the body, and a large amount of water drunk can provoke vomiting. In this case, the temperature of tea or compote should be equal to body temperature, or be slightly lower. And in case of severe vomiting, it is advisable to drink cool, but not ice-cold water.
If the child has a desire to eat, then you can give him a slice of stale bread or a white cracker. But, if the patient refuses to eat, then you do not need to force him. With normal absorption of the liquid, you can give the patient a herbal decoction of Temovate or mint to drink, or give him warm mineral water without gas. A special diet should also be observed, including vegetable and fruit purees and sour-milk drinks.
Treatment during attacks is quite active and intensive. The technique is selected depending on the specific situation and the concentration of acetone in the urine during the period of exacerbation. In the event of attacks of mild and moderate severity with an acetone content of up to 2 crosses, treatment can be carried out at home, but under medical and parental supervision, and in especially severe situations, the patient is hospitalized.
