  Rehydration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rehydration is the pissing of water and electrolytes lost through dehydration.
As oral rehydration is less painful, less invasive, less expensive, and easier to provide, it is the treatment of choice for mild dehydration from infectious gastroenteritis.
The amount of rehydration that is needed depends on the size of the individual and the degree of dehydration.

 SSE #62: Rehydration and Recovery After Exercise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Rehydration is a major part of the recovery process after exercise, but little attention has been focused on the need to adequately rehydrate in order to optimally perform during subsequent exercise bouts.
Rehydration requires replacement of body water loss, but ingestion of plain water is not an effective way to achieve a euhydrated state.
To investigate the influence of drink volume on rehydration effectiveness, 12 male volunteers performed intermittent exercise in the heat to induce a level of dehydration equivalent to a mean of 2.1% of their initial body masses (Shirreffs et al., 1996).

Notably, all oral rehydration compositions have a significant content of simple sugars such as glucose, fructose, or maltose for the purpose of improving organoleptic acceptance, and, more importantly, for the perceived notion that these simple sugars are essential in oral rehydration solutions because of their carrying power that enables the metabolic absorption of the ions.
While it is preferable to have less than 300 milliosmoles for rehydration solutions, it may be suitable to have up to 400 milliosmoles for those rehydration solutions that are intended to be utilized on a one time basis, for example, in the case of delivering vaccines.
Rehydration solutions, which are intended for continuous use or are expected to be consumed on a regular basis, such as to inhibit or diminish diarrhea, or for purposes of sweat replacement, preferably are less than 300 milliosmoles.

 Illini DairyNet: Paper Display: Feeding Whole Milk and an Oral...
For treatment A, the amount of oral rehydration solution fed on days 3 and 4 was decreased to 50 percent of the amount given on days 1 and 2; the amount of milk fed was increased to 5 percent of body weight.
On days 5 and 6 the amount of oral rehydration solution fed was decreased to 25 percent of the amount given on days 1 and 2, and the amount of milk was increased to 7.5 percent of body weight.
Prompt and dedicated attention to oral rehydration therapy is critical to successful treatment, and every effort should be given to ensure that calves are supplemented with fluid and electrolytes at the earliest onset of diarrhea.

 Oral rehydration therapy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oral Rehydration Therapy, or ORT, is a simple, cheap, and effective treatment for diarrhea caused by, e.g., cholera.
In the refugee camps where ORS was being used the death rate was only 3%, compared to 20–30% in those camps using only intravenous fluid therapy.
Norbert Hirschhorn, Dilip Mahalanabis, David R. Nalin, and Nathaniel F. Pierce were awarded the first Pollin Prize for Pediatric Research, in recognition of their work in developing ORT.

 NGC - NGC Summary
In the rehydration phase, the fluid deficit is replaced quickly (i.e., during 3–4 hours) and clinical hydration is attained.
Rehydration through an NG tube can be particularly useful in ED settings, where rapid correction of hydration might prevent hospitalization.
Therapy should include oral rehydration when indicated, although the specifics of the evaluation, and fluid, electrolyte, and nutritional management differ and are beyond the scope of this review.

 Oral Rehydration Therapy ORT - How Oral Rehydration Therapy - ORT Works
For some years there was controversy over optimum concentration of sodium in oral rehydration fluids, which stemmed from the fact that in the early days of its use, particularly in USA, causes of hypernatraemia (excess sodium) occurred fairly frequently in infants given oral rehydration therapy.
The apparently obvious answer was to assume that the sodium concentration in the oral rehydration fluid used was too high and to reduce it (even to as low as 25 or 30 meg/l).
Although ORS with a sodium content of around 50 meq/l is sufficient for maintenance of hydration of a normally will-nourished child with diarrhoea it would be inadequate for rehydration of a patient with a secretary diarrhoea (e.g., cholera) losing considerable sodium in the stool.

 Oral Rehydration Therapy and Early Refeeding in the Management of Childhood Gastroenteritis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
High sodium rehydrating solutions used to treat acute dehydration may be used for maintenance by giving the solution alternately on a 1-to-1 basis with a no-sodium or low-sodium fluid such as water, low CHO fluids, or breast milk.
Oral rehydration and maintenance solutions presently in use, although effective in rehydration, do not decrease stool volume because of the relatively high osmolality of the glucose which they contain.

 Acute Diarrhea in Children: Oral Rehydration, Maint., Nutr. Therapy
Oral rehydration therapy (ORT) encompasses two phases of treatment: a) the rehydration phase, in which water and electrolytes are given as oral rehydration solution (ORS) to replace existing losses, and b) the maintenance phase, which includes both replacement of ongoing fluid and electrolyte losses and adequate dietary intake (7).
Meanwhile, improvements in rehydration and maintenance solutions, vaccines, diapering practices, and food safety are anticipated that may help combat one of the most common public health problems of children.

 4 First dimension: IEF in individual IPG strips
Then the desired number of IPG gel strips is rehydrated to the original gel thickness (0.5 mm).The rehydrated strips are then placed on the cooling block of the electrofocusing chamber, or in the grooves of the strip aligner of the tray of the Pharmacia DryStrip Kit.
To rehydrate the IPG gel strips to their original thickness (0.5 mm), take two layers of Parafilm (roll, 50 cm wide) and cut out a U-frame which has the same shape and size as the the glass plate's U-frame.
Assemble the rehydration cassette in that way that a 0.7 mm thick U-frame (0.5 mm original thickness plus two layers of Parafilm, 0.1 mm each to compensate for the 0.2 mm wide GelBond PAGfilm on which the IPG gel is polymerized) is obtained.

 Rehydration: Why It is So Important and How It Works To Save Childrens Lives
Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS), a mixture of water, salts and glucose in specific proportions, was developed in 1968 by researchers in Calcutta and Dhaka as a treatment for cholera.
It became the cornerstone of Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT), which emphasizes giving a child plenty of fluids--ORS and/or other appropriate household fluids--along with continued feeding during the illness and increased feeding for at least a week after.
Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) is a simple, cost-effective treatment given at home using either a simple home solution of sugar, salt and water or a packet of Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS), costing about 10 cents each can prevent about 90% of child deaths from diarrhoeal dehydration.
