  • Dehydration

    These include: thirst, restless or irritable behaviour, decreased skin turgor, dry mucous membranes, sunken eyes, sunken fontanelle (in infants), and absence of tears when[rehydrate.org] A decrease in skin turgor is a late sign of dehydration. Causes You can become dehydrated if you lose too much fluid, do not drink enough water or fluids, or both.[mountsinai.org] Patient care The patient is assessed for decreased skin turgor; dry, sticky mucous membranes; rough, dry tongue; weight loss; fever; restlessness; agitation; and weakness.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
