Other Name: oral rehydration salts

Experimental: hylenex-facilitated SC hydration Drug: Isotonic hydration fluid and recombinant human hyaluronidase

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total resource utilization in the ED [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of successful rehydration in the ED [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]
    Clinical judgement of adequate hydration, and either: 1) stable or increased body weight or 2) urine production

  2. Time to ED discharge [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]
  3. Amount of rehydration fluid administered [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]
  4. Global satisfaction and ease-of-use assessments by healthcare provider(s) and parent/caregiver [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]
  5. Occurrence of infusion site pain or other local reactions [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]
  6. Occurrence of other adverse events [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
  7. Vital signs [ Time Frame: 2 to 8 hours ]
    Blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female and aged 2 months to 2 years
  • Presenting to ED with mild or moderate dehydration
  • Candidate for both parenteral and oral rehydration therapies
  • Healthy, except for underlying etiology for dehydration
  • Naive to ORT or having received attempted ORT at home for current occurrence of dehydration.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Severe dehydration

  • Medical reason or condition precluding administration of ORT
  • Indwelling IV catheter (except one intended only for laboratory sample collection) or anticipated need for IV therapy during the study
  • Anticipated need for hospitalization(other than for rehydration)
  • Known hypersensitivity to hyaluronidase or any other ingredient in the formulation of hylenex recombinant
  • Known hyponatremia, hypernatremia or hypokalemia
  • Medical condition likely to interfere with ability to fully complete protocol-specified interventions and assessments, or likely to prolong need for medical attention beyond that required for rehydration
  • Participation in an investigational drug or device study within 30 days before participation in this study
