This study investigated the practices followed by physicians in the clinical, therapeutic, and dietary management of children under the age of 5 with diarrhea.
A total of 148 physicians were observed while they provided outpatient services at various public and private health institutions in two areas of Peru.
They were also interviewed to assess their theoretical knowledge about the proper management of diarrhea in children.
The physicians treated 222 children under 5 with diarrhea.
It was observed that in taking their clinical histories the physicians ascertained the duration of the problem, the number of bowel movements, their consistency, and the presence of fecal mucus or blood in 175 (79%), 158 (71%), 140 (63%), and 153 (69%) cases, respectively.
