child with gastroenteritis and dehydration circulation assessment



You are a RN working in the Emergency Department at the Launceston General Hospital and caring for Jessica, a 3-year-old girl brought in at 2000 by her father. Jessica was collected early from childcare because she vomited twice. She has since vomited another 6-8 times at home. Jessica has been complaining of being thirsty and her father has been offering her juice and water, but she vomits every time she drinks. Jessica is toilet training but still wears pull up nappies – her last wet nappy was changed in childcare at 12pm. Jessica is otherwise well and is up to date with her immunisations. She was weighed two weeks ago and weighed 14kgs.
