Is 0.9% NaCl Liquid The Same As 0.9% Sodium Chloride?
, is nacl 0.9% and sodium chloride 0.9% the same or not?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
The two terms are the same. Sodium Chloride 0.9% is also called sodium chloride 0.9% (0.9% NaCl), a salt solution whose levels are the same as human body fluids, so it is widely used for medical purposes.
The main function of NaCl 0.9% is to replace lost body fluids in cases of dehydration. However, 0.9% NaCl is also often used as a wound cleaning fluid because it is sterile and has the same fluid content as body fluids which is considered safe and not stinging.
In addition, in patients with sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses) 0.9% NaCl solution is also often used to help expel mucus by draining this fluid into the nose. NaCl 0.9% can also be used as a mixture of drugs, for example a drug used to nebulize asthma patients.
That's all my explanation about 0.9% NaCl and its functions. Hopefully helpful and useful.
