Post a reply: Treatment protocols for Cholera and SAM

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

I found an article from a previous post addressing the issue of IV fluids and how they may affect MUAC, http://www.nutritionj.com/content/10/1/92 and based on that article it seems that treatment of SAM in a child with cholera should likely wait until the child is recovering well and finished with IV fluids before we screen with MUAC for admission. Is this the protocol that most people use in the case of a cholera and SAM? Also, would a SAM case would then be considered uncomplicated (and therefore eligible for OTP) since the cholera symptoms have cleared up and presuming the child has no other complications?
