The hypertonic solution may be 2-10%. Depending on what you plan to use this tool, the salt concentration will be different. As the technology of preparation of the solution is fairly simple, and the treatment for better to use freshly prepared liquid, do not try to stock up on medicine for the future. Independently prepared solution cannot be stored.
For gargling with laryngitis and tonsillitis do not need a very concentrated solution. 2 grams of salt dissolve in 100 ml of warm water, carefully stir the liquid so that there are no remaining undissolved salt crystals.
For gastric lavage in case of poisoning need about a liter of hypertonic saline, so salt will be required in the amount of 30 grams. Pour it into a liter of hot boiled water and stir until completely dissolved. Before application it is necessary to cool the solution to 37 degrees.
If the patient does not need a cleansing enema, but the intestines should be emptied (e.g., in the postpartum or postoperative period), you should prepare a 5% hypertonic solution. For the procedure need only 100-200 ml of liquid, depending on the age and weight of the patient. To 5 grams of salt is added to 100 ml of hot water, the solution is thoroughly mixed and is cooled to 37-38 degrees.
For the treatment of purulent wounds required 10% hypertonic saline. The higher the salt concentration, the worse it dissolves and you get crystals of salt on an open wound is unacceptable. Therefore, the technology of preparation of the solution will be slightly different from the above.
Pour the beaker with 10 grams of salt and fill it with water to the mark 100 ml. Pour the liquid into a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil. This procedure will allow the salt to dissolve and sterilize the solution, so it will be safe. But before use the liquid should be cooled to room temperature.
