Cauda Equina Syndrome is a rare but serious condition that can permanently damage the spinal cord by causing spinal stenosis. Florida hospitals and doctors are trained to recognize this condition as a medical emergency. The condition places extreme pressure on the nerves at the end of the spinal cord where it exits the lumbar spine.
Severe dehydration rarely “just happens”. It usually occurs when an infant has another illness (such as gastroenteritis, or stomach flu) or injury (such as second- or third-degree burns) that depletes the body’s water and electrolytes. These cases occur here in Orlando, throughout Florida, and beyond. We’ve discussed the condition in previous posts, and now we’re looking at outcomes.
