    Oral rehydration therapy is a treatment for the symptoms of dehydration. ORT is less invasive than the other strategies for fluid replacement, specifically intravenous (IV) fluid replacement. Mild to moderate dehydration in children seen in an emergency department is best treated with ORT. The World Health Organization and UNICEF specify indications, preparations and procedures for ORT.Since its introduction and development ORT at the end of the 20th century, oral rehydration therapy has decreased human deaths from dehydration in vomiting and diarrheal illnesses, especially in cholera epidemics occurring in children. It represents a major advance in global public health ORT may lower the mortality rate of diarrhea by as much as 93%.
