IDRATON 245® is an oral rehydration solution (ORS) with a low osmotic concentration (245 mOsm/L H2O), formulated in accordance with World Health Organisation (WHO) and United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) recommendations.
box containing 10 doses (bags).
IDRATON 245 ® is based on the co-transport of water into the enterocytes by the sodium/glucose co-transporter. This water absorption system remains active even in the presence of gastroenteritis. Whether diarrhoea is secretory or osmotic, this system allows water to be conveyed from the intestinal lumen into the enterocytes and from the enterocytes into plasma, but only if sodium and glucose are administered simultaneously, in the correct dilution and in the correct ratio. IDRATON 245 ® has the benefit of being easily administerable, thanks to its pleasant orange flavour.
