Oral Rehydration Formula (ORF) is a fluid replacement formula, used to prevent or treat dehydration, most commonly caused by diarrhoea. It involves drinking water with modest amounts of sugar and salt.
Electrolyte maintenance is important to assist in the prevention of dehydration:
- Introducing electrolytes back into the body, helps keep dehydration from occurring.
- Electrolytes assist with the absorption of fluids.
- Formulations that contain glucose, sodium chloride, potassium chloride and sodium citrate can assist with replenishing lost electrolytes.
