Symptoms of Dehydration

may be asking yourself –  Self – I wonder how quickly I could become dehydrated? The answer is simple.  It really all depends on how quickly your body is using fluids.  If you are in very hot and humid environment and you are doing tough physical work you could find yourself becoming dehydrated in matter of several hours!

Having supplies to make oral rehydration solution can be a critical medical prep. The formula I use needs table salt, potassium salt, baking soda and sugar. 0.5 liters of water, 1/16 teaspoon table salt, 1/16 teaspoon potassium salt, 1/8 teaspoon baking soda, 1 tablespoon sugar. When mixed into water the ORS should be used within 24 hours. If you keep the ingredients separate (and dry!) they’ll last practically forever. As long as the patient is conscious this should help balance things out. Even if they are vomiting, keep giving small sips of the ORS as they will be getting some hydration – hopefully enough to keep them from getting worse….
And while having buckets (or other containers) to carry water is a minimum, consider a cart to bring back more per trip. I have a heavy duty garden cart rated at 400 pounds so I can bring a lot of water back from my water source on any given trip.
