Description of the medicine: Glucosolan (Glucosolanum)
In addition to parenteral administration, saline solutions can in some cases be used orally (with dehydration I - II degree).
For oral use, a mixture is used containing 3.5 g of sodium chloride, 1.5 g of potassium chloride, 2.5 g of sodium bicarbonate or 2.9 g of sodium citrate and 20 g of glucose ("oral rehydration salt). The mixture is dissolved in 1 l. warm (40 - 42 'C) boiled water immediately before use.
1 sachet of Regidron * dosage powder contains 3.5 g of sodium chloride, 2.5 g of potassium chloride, and 2.9 g of sodium.
Glucosolan contains a rehydration salt and is available in tablet form.
Glucosolan includes two types of tablets. Solan tablets each contain 0.35 g of sodium chloride, 0.15 g of potassium chloride, 0.25 g of sodium bicarbonate or 0.29 g of sodium citrate. Separately, 4 glucose tablets (0.5 g) for each Solan tablet (total 2 g glucose) are attached. Thus, each small dose of glucosolan corresponds to 1/10 of the dose of the above oral rehydration salt.
Glucosolan is produced in the form of a set of 10 Solan tablets and 40 glucose tablets, that is, a full dose of rehydration salt.
Glucosolan tablets are dissolved before use in an appropriate amount of water.
It is used not only for infectious diseases, but also for the prevention and treatment of water-salt metabolism disorders during thermal and severe physical exertion, leading to significant loss of fluid by the body.
Take glucosolan orally, regardless of food intake. Before use, the contents of the packages, including the salt mixture and glucose, are dissolved in 1 liter of boiled water (for medicinal purposes) or in 2 liters of water (for prevention). Tablets (1 Solana tablet and 4 glucose tablets) are dissolved in 100 ml of boiled and chilled water.
With diarrhea, the drug is taken for 6 to 7 hours, 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) every 3 to 5 minutes, or the mixture is administered through a probe. With a mild form of diarrhea, the drug is taken at 40 - 50 ml per 1 kg of body weight, with moderate conditions 70 - 80 ml / kg. For newborns and young children, glucosolan is prescribed 2 to 3 teaspoons.
In case of seizures and other water-electrolyte metabolism disorders associated with overheating and dehydration (polyuria, increased thirst), glucosolan is taken in fractional portions (100-150 ml each) from 500 to 900 ml of the solution during the first 30 minutes. Every 40 minutes, the same amount of the drug is repeated until the symptoms of heat damage and water-electrolyte deficiency are eliminated.
To prevent disturbances in water-electrolyte metabolism caused by extreme heat and physical exertion, glucosolan solution should be taken with small sips when thirst appears and stopped as it is quenched.
Release form: Solan tablets in a blister pack of 10 pieces and glucose tablets (0.5 g each) in a blister pack of l0 pieces; 10 packs of Solan tablets and 40 packs of glucose tablets in a box.
