Post a reply: What to do when ReSoMal and CMV not available?

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

We are having shortages and cannot find in-country sources for some our needed products. The shortage is expected to last until next year. In particular, I need to know how I can make ReSoMal and F-100 equivalents without access to CMV (while I search for a source). I found one posting online that advised for ReSoMal you can use a standard ORS 1litre packet, 4 g potassium and 50 g sucrose in 2L of water to replace ReSoMal. The posting said that this was second hand from someone who worked at MSF so I don't have any official source to verify this. Is this suggestion valid or recommended?
