PEDIALYTE® PEDIALYTE® FREEZER POPS
Oral Electrolyte Maintenance Solution
Indications And Clinical Uses: Prevents dehydration and restores fluids and minerals lost in patients with mild or moderate diarrhea and other conditions causing mild to moderate dehydration; for maintenance of body water and electrolytes and prevention of dehydration secondary to acute diarrhea in infants and children; for oral supplementation and for maintenance following corrective parenteral therapy of severe dehydration; for maintenance and transitional supplementation following surgical procedures and conditions associated with excessive fluid loss or deficient intake.
Precautions: Severe dehydration secondary to diarrhea and other conditions incurring large fluid and electrolyte losses requires parenteral therapy initially. With intractable vomiting, adynamic ileus, intestinal obstruction or perforated bowel, nothing should be administered orally. In the presence of decreased renal function with oliguria and anuria, oral and i.v. solutions should be administered with caution.
Dosage: Administration should be initiated in frequent oral feedings. The dosage of Pedialyte and Pedialyte Freezer Pops should be individualized according to body weight, ongoing extra losses, age of the patient and physician’s recommendation. The approximate guidelines for maintenance of body water and electrolytes and the prevention of dehydration secondary to acute diarrhea in infants and children are 100 to 150 mL/kg daily. Children 4 years and older: 2 L or more daily.
