ORS global
Replenishes lost fluids and prevents dehydration
  • Oral rehydration salt therapy utilizes glucose and electrolyte solution to prevent dehydration.
  • The utilization of sodium-glucose co-transport in small intestine is the core phenomena of this therapy. Glucose also plays an important role providing necessary calories, at the same time along with the administered electrolytes, enhances the transport of water across the intestinal barrier through osmosis.

  • Sodium chloride                   1.95gm.

  • Tri sodium citrate dihydrate      2.175gm.
