  1. ORS use in diarrhoea in Saudi children : is it adequate ?

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of diarrhoea and especially the pattern of diarrhoea therapy in Saudi children under 5 years were studied as a part of the Maternal and Child Health Survey during 1991.

    A statistically representative sample of over 6300 mothers, from all over the country was interviewed by trained nurses.

    There were 3.8 episodes of diarrhoea per child under 5 per year.

    For treating diarrhoea, ORS, salt-sugar solution (SSS), other available solutions, intravenous fluid and various drugs were the therapeutic agents.

    In 73 per cent of cases ORS, nearly 3 per cent SSS, 33 per cent other solutions and in over 4 per cent intravenous fluid were used.

    Anti-diarrhoeal drugs and antibiotics were used in over 40 per cent of cases.

    Over 9 per cent of cases did not use any treatment.

    Young mothers used ORS at a higher rate (84 per cent) for their children compared to the average for all (73 per cent).

    Children of illiterate parents used ORS at a higher rate than children of literate parents.

    In urban area, the use-rate was lower (68 per cent) than in rural area (80 per cent).

    The regional use-rates were almost similar excepting a higher rate in the northern area.

    The use-rate of drugs was similar to other countries.

    For improving and sustaining this high ORS use rate, and for lowering the percentage of drug-use, regular training of health personnel, health education of parents, and regular sensitization of the people through popular media are most essential.
