Hospitalized patients with dehydration shock (DS) should be in the next intensive care units, general or infectious resuscitation. Unacceptable long-term transportation in infectious disease hospitals, which often explain the need for strict isolation of infectious patients. Patients with intestinal infections can be placed in ordinary wards, as their infectiousness is small, only tightened the requirements for decontamination of their selections.
In the presence of marked hemodynamic disorders treatment of patients should start on site (to carry out standard anti shock activity - see cardiopulmonary resuscitation). Decide on the possibility of transporting the patient for further treatment in hospital should be clear only after stabilization of hemodynamics, in the greatest transportation need to continue treatment is started to introduce salt solutions to a strict accounting of the number and recorded losses.
