“…It was also determined that 26 patients had platelet counts of ≥ 100 0000/mm 3 , no significant changes of arterial pressure and no severe haemorrhagic manifestations, and they were therefore classified as having mild dengue. Another 24 patients had thrombocytopenia (platelet levels of < 100 0000/mm 3 ) and arterial or postural hypotension, and had received parenteral hydration for at least 6 hr; these patients were classified as having severe dengue, matching previous criteria used for adults in South and Central America 17–19 …”

“…Com relação ao sintoma 'presença de vômitos', deveria ser considerado um sinal de alarme quando: os vômitos fossem persistentes com três ou mais episódios em uma hora ou houver cinco ou mais episódios em seis horas 18 .
