Abstract

This prospective cohort study was carried out in the neonatal unit of the Yangon Children Hospital, Myammar, to gather more information on the types of feedings and hand-washing practices of mothers as the determinant of severe dehydration in infants with acute diarrhoea due to Escherichia coli, The study subjects included 100 infants with diarrhoea, aged less than 4 months, admitted to the hospital from June 1997 to May 1998. Data on isolation of E. coli from rectal swab samples, types of feedings, hand-washing practices, and dehydration status were collected. Of the 100 cases, E. coli was isolated from rectal swab samples of 48 infants. Of these 48 cases, 28 had some dehydration and 20 had severe dehydration. Exclusive breast-feeding wasobserved only in the age group <1 and >1-2 month(s). The association of the severity crf dehydration with other types of feedings compared to exclusive breast-feeding was not statistically significant. In this study, most mothers washed their hands with water only after cleansing their children's defaecation, and before and after feeding their children. The severity of dehydration was statistically significant in hand-washing practices when compared to washing with water only and washing with soap and water. This studyhas shown the association between types of feedings and hand-washing practices with dehydration in infants with acute diarrhoea due to E. coli. The results of the study suggest that there is a need for appropriate intervention programmes to promote exclusive breastfeeding and hand-washing practiceswith soap and water after cleansing children's defaecation, and before andafter feeding children.
