La deshidratación en personas mayores podría detectarse mediante análisis (artículo)

  Las personas mayores presentan un mayor riesgo de padecer deshidratación por pérdida de agua, que suele deberse a la ingesta insuficiente de líquidos. Esto puede traducirse en efectos negativos para la salud como incapacidad e incluso la muerte.

Physical signs of dehydration in the elderly

It is widely recognised that dehydration is a common condition in the elderly and that it is a frequent cause of hospitalization among older people, in spite of efforts by caregivers to prevent its development. Successful prevention strategies will require early identification of individuals at increased risk, which in turn means that knowledge of simple [...]

La European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) publica nuevas recomendaciones para la ingesta de agua en humanos

La European Food Safety Authority (Autoridad Europea de Seguridad Alimentaria, EFSA) ha publicado recientemente (2010) valores dietéticos de referencia para la ingesta de hidratos de carbono, fibra alimentaria, grasas, azúcares y agua. Una de las conclusiones a las que ha llegado es que para el agua, una ingesta diaria de 2 litros se considera suficiente en las [...]

Urine specific gravity as a predictor of early neurological deterioration in acute ischemic stroke

The authors of this paper have previously suggested that dehydration may be a cause of early deterioration in patients who have suffered an acute ischaemic stroke. This was based on measurement of the blood urea nitrogen/creatinine (BUN/Cr) ratio: they found that a high value ( >15) was an independent predictor of early neurological deterioration.   [...]

Using near real-time morbidity data to identify heat-related illness prevention strategies in North Carolina

Many studies over the last 20 years or so have shown large increases in morbidity and mortality during heat waves. Warnings of the potential dangers would allow action to be taken: those at risk can seek cooler environments and increase water intake and those responsible for vulnerable older adults and young children can take the [...]

Maternal Hydration Therapy Improves the Quantity of Amniotic Fluid and the Pregnancy Outcome in Third-Trimester Isolated Oligohydramnios: A Controlled Randomized Institutional Trial

Pregnancy imposes a considerable physiological stress on the mother-to be, and a number of potential complications can arise. Among these is a failure to form sufficient amniotic fluid, a condition referred to as oligohydramnios. This condition can adversely affect the wellbeing of the foetus and can give rise to a number of complications in late [...]
