How do we prepare a normal saline?

Normal Saline is an isotonic solution.

Yes this saline is a hypertonic solution but 3% saline is also not normal. There is nothing "normal" about it. There is only one "normal saline" and that is 0.9%.

D5 Normal Saline/ D5W, 0.45% Normal Saline or 5%Dextrose in 1/2 Normal Saline, 0.2% Normal Saline. Hope i could help you. --freed

It is saline that has twice the concentration of salt as normal saline. Normal saline is 0.9% NaCl, so twice normal is 1.8% NaCl. Now I have a question. Is this ever given to patients?

Yes, but half normal saline is usually sufficient (and far more frequently used than normal saline).

normal saline composition is same as body fliud

what catecholamine should not be mixed with normal saline

How much salt is in normal saline my saline solution says that salin = 0.9% salt in water

normal saline is 0.85%w/v NaCl whlist physiological saline is 0.90% w/v NaCl.

Yes. NS=Normal Saline and NSS=Normal Saline Solution

A Physiological salt solution is a technically incorrect term for a normal saline solution. A normal saline solution is %0.90 NaCl (sodium chloride.) (percentage is mass per volume.

Saline is nothing more than salt water. Salt is NaCl. Normal saline is a 0.9% solution of NaCl in H2O.

Normal saline is a solution of 9 grams of sodium chloride ( salt) in solution. The solute is one liter of water. Normal refers to the concentration of salt to water. Other concentrations include half normal or quarter normal saline. In medical uses this solution is used in a sterile formulation for Intravenous infusions, medicated dressings, eye and bladder irrigation and wound lavage and skin cleansing.

NS is normal saline and DNS is dextrose normal saline...

can normal saline for irrigation be used orally at 200ml 3 times daily

Normal saline has a sodium chloride concentration of 9 g/L.

Normal saline intended to be used for intravenous administration comes under drug category.

Yes. Normal saline is isotonic. Add anything to it and its omolarity increases hence normal saline with 20kcl is of a higher osmolarity than plasma hence it is hypertonic.

Saline means salty, so saline soil has too much salt in it for normal crops and plants to grow.

What is the difference between normal saline solution and ringer's lactate solution?

0.9% NaCl solution (normal saline, physiological saline) is used to give intravenous fluids to the patients suffering from salt and water deprivation. It can be used to wash the wounds etc.

Normal saline is often abbreviated NS in medical terms.
