On the Medical Preparation video tape (now included with the 8 DVD set of civil defense materials), Dr. Jane Orient teaches that fluid replacement is the most valuable life-saving measure which can be implemented for victims of burns and some life-threatening diseases. She gives a kitchen formula for an oral fluid replacement solution which can be used in time of crisis.
Dr. Orient suggests one teaspoon of Lite Salt (the Morton mixture of iodized potassium chloride and sodium chloride in a blue cylindrical container), one-third teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), ten teaspoons of table sugar (sucrose), and one quart of water.
Burn victims need to drink about four to eight quarts of this solution in the first eight hours, four to eight quarts in the next sixteen hours, and as much as tolerable thereafter.
Twenty-five pounds of sugar, one pound of baking soda, five eleven ounce containers of Lite Salt, one teaspoon, and one copy of this formula fits perfectly in a four gallon plastic bucket with air-tight lid. The baking soda fits exactly into a one pint (one-half quart) canning jar. Put everything in the bucket and then pour full with the sugar.
The lives of at least ten people can be saved by this kit.
