Dehydration Treatment - ORS (Oral Rehydration Solutions)
Dehydration can be caused by traveller’s diarrhoea or physical activities such as hiking, climbing, cycling etc. Many hikers, travellers, and backpackers often carry ORS for re-hydration.
Oral Rehydration Solutions (ORS) are widely considered to be the best method for combating the dehydration caused by diarrhea. ORS consists of a mixture of salts and other substances, such as glucose, sucrose or molasses etc. These are then taken orally to combat dehydration.
