Oral replacement of water and electrolyte losses due to travellers' diarrhoea.
Scand J Gastroenterol Suppl. 1983; 84:95-8.SJ

Abstract

An oral rehydration solution (ORS) containing glucose, sodium and potassium chloride, and sodium bicarbonate, forms the basis of an oral rehydration therapy (ORT) regime which is detailed. The regime can be modified for adults, older children, younger children and neonates, and may be used in combination with other methods of augmented fluid intake such as juices and plain water supplements. Milk and soft foods should be added to the regimen. Guidelines for patients include methods of assessing rehydration. The harmful effects of 'therapeutic' starvation are stressed.
