Sodium Chloride(NA)


D.n.s. dexts solution is used as a source of electrolytes (minerals in body fluids) and water to prevent dehydration (when loss of water exceeds water intake) and replenish the loss of sodium from body fluids in conditions like metabolic alkalosis (acid-base imbalance in body fluids that can cause serious complications) or diarrhea. It is also used as a solvent for reconstitution of medications or diluting agent for administration of medications intravenously.

How it works

D.n.s. dexts solution belongs to the class of medications called electrolytes or osmotic agents. It works by controlling fluid and electrolyte balance and increases water retention (by regulating osmotic pressure), thereby increasing water content in the body. It also plays an important role in maintenance of acid-base balance of body fluids.
