Discussion of treatments for Cholera:
Cholera can be simply and successfully treated by immediate replacement
of the fluid and salts lost through diarrhea. Patients can be
treated with oral rehydration solution, a prepackaged mixture
of sugar and salts to be mixed with water and drunk in large amounts.
This solution is used throughout the world to treat diarrhea.
Severe cases also require intravenous fluid replacement. With
prompt rehydration, fewer than 1% of cholera patients die.
Antibiotics shorten the course and diminish the severity of the
illness, but they are not as important as rehydration. Persons
who develop severe diarrhea and vomiting in countries where cholera
occurs should seek medical attention promptly. (Source: excerpt from Cholera General: DBMD
