After returning from a trip to Italy, Inga Bauer, a 52-year-old female, presented to the Emergency Department with a 4-day history of fever, vomiting and watery diarrhea and was diagnosed with Rotovirus. Diagnostic investigations included a complete blood panel, blood cultures, stool samples for C&S and O&P and an ECG. The patient received a 2L RL IV bolus for dehydration and ondansetron 8mg IV to treat nausea and vomiting. The patient remains weak and is experiencing diffuse muscle cramps.
Due to her recent travel and GI symptoms, the patient was also placed on contact precautions.
Based on the results of her bloodwork, the IV fluids have been changed to NS with 40 meq/L KCL to infused over 5 hours. Inga is currently resting in bed with her daughter Veronica, at her bedside.
