Oral Rehydration Salts (WHO)


Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS), as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), are a simple and effective way to treat dehydration caused by diarrhea. Here are its main uses:

  • Dehydration Treatment: ORS is used to replace fluids and electrolytes lost during diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating. It contains a precise balance of salts (such as sodium and potassium) and glucose to help the body absorb water and electrolytes more efficiently.
  • Diarrhea Management: ORS helps to prevent and treat dehydration associated with acute diarrhea, a common condition caused by infections, food poisoning, or other gastrointestinal issues. It helps to restore lost fluids and electrolytes and prevent complications of dehydration.
  • Rehydration in Children: ORS is especially important for rehydrating children with diarrhea, as they are more susceptible to dehydration. It can prevent serious complications and reduce the need for hospitalization due to dehydration-related illnesses.
  • Traveler’s Diarrhea: ORS packets are convenient for travelers visiting regions where the risk of traveler’s diarrhea is high. It can help manage symptoms and prevent dehydration while traveling in areas with poor sanitation or contaminated water.
  • Sports and Exercise: ORS can be useful for rehydrating and replenishing electrolytes lost during intense physical activity, sports, or exercise sessions, especially in hot and humid conditions.

Side Effects:-

  • ORS is generally safe when used as directed, but excessive consumption may lead to side effects. Here are potential side effects:
  • Nausea and Vomiting: Some individuals may experience nausea or vomiting, especially if ORS is consumed too quickly or in large amounts.
  • Abdominal Discomfort: Drinking large quantities of ORS may cause bloating, gas, or mild abdominal discomfort in some people.
  • High Sodium Levels: Excessive intake of ORS may lead to high sodium levels in the blood (hypernatremia), particularly if used inappropriately or in individuals with certain medical conditions.
  • Allergic Reactions: Rarely, allergic reactions to ingredients in ORS may occur, resulting in symptoms such as rash, itching, or swelling. Seek medical attention if allergic symptoms develop.


Oral Rehydration Salts (WHO) are indicated for the treatment and prevention of dehydration caused by diarrhea and vomiting in both adults and children. They are essential for restoring lost fluids and electrolytes, particularly in situations where access to clean water or medical care is limited. ORS should be used as directed by healthcare professionals or following WHO guidelines for proper rehydration during episodes of diarrhea.
