important issues with air travel include eustation tube dysfunction and motion sickness.
Traveler's diarrhea is always an important issue. Prevention is of paramount importance.

Treatment for dehydration is with Oral Rehydration Solution. Pepto Bismol may

stool. Empiric antibiotic treatment for children, depending on their age, is with
TMP/SMX, Ciprofloxacin, or Azithromycine.
