ORS is a simple, proven intervention that can be used at the community and facility level to prevent and treat diarrheal dehydration and decrease diarrhea mortality.
In dehydration associated with diarrhoea, gastroenteritis, cholera and dysentery the body is devoid of water and electrolytes. ORT (oral rehydration therapy) is the simple treatment which involves administering a solution of salts and sugars for replenishing electrolyte and water content of the body. Sodium is the major cat-ion found in the extracellular fluid. It regulates the water content of the body and is critical for generation of electrical signals. Similarly, Potassium is the major cat-ion found inside the cells. It is required for regulation of heart beat and function of the muscles. The Sodium and Potassium concentration of ORS must be sufficient to replace their loss and correct hyponatremia/hypokalemia but not so high as to cause or worsen hypernatremia/hyperkalemia which can itself occasionally result in death
Sodium Chloride & Sodium Citrate (Electrolyte)
- Sodium regulates the water content of the body and is critical for the generation of electrical signals.
- Sodium is the major cat-ion found in the extracellular fluid.
Potassium Chloride (Electrolyte)
- Similarly, Potassium is the major cat-ion found inside the cells.
- It is required for regulation of heartbeat and function of the muscles.
- The Sodium and Potassium concentration of ORS is sufficient to replace their loss and correct hyponatremia/hypokalemia.
- ORS containing sodium citrate base is effective for the management of diarrhea in both adults and children.
- It is a convenient stable form of ORS for use in the home and for travelers.
- Lessens the pain & distress and, minimizes gastric distention.
- Correct electrolyte imbalance & provides energy to the body, and significantly reduces the need for intravenous fluid treatment.
