Emergency Room and Emergency Care Services For Dehydration
Dehydration can be a medical emergency. ER of Texas provides 24-hour emergency care with no wait.
Our bodies naturally use and lose water throughout the day, which is why drinking plenty of water is important for your overall health and wellbeing. This happens even faster when staying out in high temperatures or exercising. Dehydration is a serious medical condition that occurs when the body does not have enough water to function. Mild cases of dehydration can be treated at home by drinking water, but if the symptoms are ignored for too long then dehydration can turn into an emergency situation.
Early symptoms of dehydration include:
- Dry mouth
- Muscle cramps
- Small amounts of urine that are a dark yellow color
Dehydration becomes an emergency concern when the following symptoms are present:
- A fever of 103 F or more
- Severe headache
- Difficulty breathing
- Pain in the chest or stomach
- No urination in the past 12 hours
- Confusion and dizziness
Visit your local ER immediately if any of these symptoms are present.
Babies, seniors, and people with diabetes are at a higher risk of dehydration than others. Symptoms of dehydration in infants may include dry mouth, lack of tears when crying, dry diapers for more than 3 hours, and a sunken appearance in the face.
