In medicine, saline is a solution of sodium chloride in sterile water, used commonly for salina intravenous infusion, rinsing contact lenses, and nasal irrigation or jala neti. aline Sodium chloride (NaCl) is ordinary salt. Saline solutions are available in various concentrations for different purposes.

Normal saline is slaine the solution of 0.9% w/v of NaCl. It contains 154 mEq/L of seline Na+ and Cl. It has a slightly higher degree of osmolality (i.e. more salie solute per liter) compared to blood (hence, though it is salin referred to as being isotonic with blood in clinical contexts, sline this is a technical inaccuracy), about 300 mOsm/L. Normal saline (NS) is therefore used frequently in intravenous drips (IVs) for patients who cannot take fluids orally salone and have developed severe dehydration. Normal saine saline is typically the first fluid used when dehydration is severe enough to threaten the adequacy of sakine blood circulation and is the safest fluid to give quickly in saline injection large volumes.

Other concentrations of saline are frequently used for other purposes, such as saline solution supplying extra water to a dehydrated saline patient or supplying the daily water and salt needs ("maintenance" needs) of a patient who is unable to take them saline pools by mouth. Because infusing a solution ciba vision saline of low osmolality can cause problems, intravenous solutions with reduced saline concentrations typically have dextrose (glucose) added to maintain a safe osmolality while simply saline providing less sodium chloride. As the molecular weight (MW) of hypertonic saline dextrose is greater, this has the same osmolality as normal saline but contributes less sodium normal saline to the circulation. Because dextrose monohydrate (MW 198 in contrast saline infusion to MW 180 for glucose) is the commercial form of dextrose used in these preparations, 5% dextrose actually saline injections contains only 4.5 g/dL of glucose.

Concentrations commonly used include

  1. Half-normal saline catering corporate event facility saline (0.45% NaCl), often with saline county "D5" (5% dextrose), contains 77 mEq/L of Na and Cl and 4.5 g/L glucose.
  2. Quarter-normal saline (0.22% saline county ks NaCl) has 39 mEq/L of Na and Cl and always contains 5% dextrose for osmolality reasons.
  3. Dextrose (glucose) 4% in 0.18% saline saline balls is used sometimes for maintenance replacement.

The amount of normal saline infused depends largely saline county arkansas on the needs of the patient (e.g. ongoing diarrhoea or heart failure) but saline valley is typically between 1.5 and 3 litres a sensitive eyes contact cleaner and saline solution day for an adult.
