CeraSport Ex-1 enhances performance for extreme athletes and helps avert dehydration caused by sweat loss. It is available in a 12.5g packet that makes 500 mL, containing 10g of Carbohydrates and increased amounts of electrolytes.
CeraSport EX1 is recommended fo ruse during shorter events or bouts of physical activity in hot and humid environments. In these conditions sweat rate increases, and a stronger electrolyte replacement is needed.
Maintaining proper hydration is important for anyone but an especially critical issue for military personnel. Oral rehydration (or ORS) should be given to troops before, during and after physical training, or in field operations. ORS should also be given to troops during other dehydrating illness, some trauma events and when anyone has influenza or other upper respiratory illness with fever.
Hydration and Trauma Patients - TCCC Guidelines:
Since 2003, the Tactical Combat Casualty Care Committee has recommended the administration of oral fluids to casualties with penetrating truama. Prolonged transportation, dehydration from environmental extremes, and prolonged periods casualties are kept NPO prior to surgery contributed to this decision.
The Committee felt this dehydration could adversely affect the casualty's chance of survival and also felt the observed risk of emesis and aspiration remarkably low.
Under the 2003 guidelines, PO fluids are recommended for all casualties with a normal state of consciousness, including those with penetrating torso trauma.
