Addition Of Food Coloring And Oralit Drinking Rules For Children Aged 2 Years?
Do you want to ask? Is it possible to provide food coloring in the manufacture of artificial sugar (LGG) solutions? and what’s the difference with marketed and home-made ORS, because what is marketed is usually yellow and how the rules of use are for children under 2 years. u003cbr u003eThank you.
Hello MSahar, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dyes and flavorings in ORS that are sold freely are added to increase the tolerance of children in drinking ORS. ORS which has a variant of flavor (and color) has a distribution permit permitted by BPOM, and can be said to be quite safe. ORS can also be made by yourself (mixing 1 liter of clean water with half a teaspoon of salt and 8 teaspoons of sugar), but the homemade ORS does not have the additional electrolytes available in ORS sold.
Rules for using ORS that are sold freely are behind the ORS packaging. ORS is diluted in the volume of water as prescribed (generally diluted in 200 ml or 1 glass of star fruit clean water). The rules of use are as follows:
<1 year: in the first 3 hours give 1 1/2 cups, and give 1/2 glass each child diarrhea / vomiting
1-8 years: give 3 glasses in the first 3 hours, and give 1 glass per diarrhea / vomiting
8-12 years: give 6 cups in the first 3 hours, and give 1 1/2 cups for diarrhea / vomiting
> 12 years: give 12 cups in the first 3 hours and give each cup diarrhea / vomiting
If there is a sign of severe dehydration: children are lazy to drink, tend to be weak and sleepy, or even nervous and decreased consciousness, pinch the skin back slowly, eyes cowong, crying but tears do not come out, immediately take the child to the nearest health facility because it requires fluid resuscitation through vessels blood.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful.
