Diarrhea in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Diarrhea is a common manifestation of HIV disease which most nurses will find themselves confronting at some point. It can be extremely debilitating, as well as causing psychological distress to patients. Treatment depends on etiology; it may be successful if the diarrhea is caused by a specific enteric pathogen or a specific medication the patient is taking. However, often the diarrhea cannot be resolved and treatment must be by supportive measures. Management has three components: diet, anti-diarrheal agents, and skin care. A multidisciplinary team provides the most effective approach for managing these complex, difficult cases.
