Objectives. Evaluation of the percentage of medical intervention as a direct result of diarrhea and dehydration amongst patients admitted to the A&E ward in Janów Lubelski. Material and methods. Information was taken from analysis of the book of A&E admissions in Janów Lubelski. The data analysis included only cases of patients who had a degree of dehydration which did not qualify to the treatment at an outpatient clinic, and there was no need to refer them to a specialist. Finally those patients found their way to the general practitioner. Results. Dehydration as a result of prolonged, or acute diarrhea constitutes 121 cases which is 3.78% of whole number of patients analyzed over seven consecutive years, from 1st of January 2004 to 31st of December 2010. Gathered data point also to the bulk of advice of this type in summer and the smallest in autumn and the early winter. Conclusions. Patients treated because of dehydration probably suffer as a result of food poisoning. Perhaps proper education (brochures) and the impact of the GP will significantly reduce the proportion of these cases. © Copyright by Wydawnictwo Continuo.
