    Why water should not be boiled before making ORS Solution..??

    The WHO Diarrhoeal Diseases Control Programme arrives at the conclusion that boiling is an effective method of decontamination of water to be used for the preparation of ORS solutions, but has the following disadvantages:

    1.the difficulty of obtaining fuel and its cost,

    2.the time required for boiling and cooling (and consequently the delay in commencing therapy),

    3.the risk that, after boiling and cooling, the water or ORS solution prepared with it may become contaminated during measuring, mixing, handling, or storage,

    4.the risk that the water may be used for preparing the ORS solution before it has been sufficiently cooled,

    5.the (perhaps minor) risk that the users will mistakenly boil the ORS solution after preparation.




    On the basis of available information, the following recommendations have been made regarding the preparation of ORS solutions:

    1.ORS solution should be prepared with water made potable by recognized methods (e.g. boiling, chlorination, etc.) in containers washed with such water. This is important because enteric bacteria can grow in ORS solution, and there are as yet insufficient data to show that there is no risk associated with the use of "usual" drinking water;

    2.ORS solution, once so prepared, should be protected against subsequent contamination and kept in a cool dark place;

    3.If potable water cannot be guaranteed, and ORS solution needs to be administered, the best available water should be used;

    4.ORS solution, no matter what water is chosen, should ideally be used within 12 hours and never kept for more than 24 hours.
