    Would you consider " decreased oral intake " as an associated sign/symptoms regardless the age of the patient?

    Yes, I would. I wouldn't think that the age of the patient makes any difference in this case.

    It would depend on the chief complaint. What is is associated with?

    A splinter in the finger? Or fever and abdominal pain?
