Study Points to More Effective Treatment than IV Infusions for Low Blood Volume in OI, POTS

The study revealed that both saline and ORS are effective in the short term treatment of OI.

While simple sodium can help raise blood volume, ORS still seems to be the better option, according to this study. Better yet, ORS is readily available, as well as affordable and it doesn't require a visit to an infusion center or the use of ports and is obviously much less invasive, providing fewer risks than any venipuncture.
