ABSTRACT
The article presents a study conducted to review outcome of all high output stoma (HOS) patients over 22 months. Patients with a HOS of more than 2000 ml daily, are likely to have complications of dehydration and hypomagnesaemia. Management of HOS includes hypotonic fluid restriction, administration of an glucose-electrolyte solution and further reducing intestinal losses with anti- diarroeal and anti-secretory drugs; loperamide codeine phosphate and omeprazole or octreotide. Most HOS patients at home need oral magnesium.
