Dr Abuheliaqa said this could lead to osmolarity, heat stroke, hyperosmolar ketoacidosis or even hypoglacemia.
Intravenous (IV) fluids and other fluids used in health care (as well as sports replacement fluids) are labelled with their osmolarity. For example, 0.9 per cent sodium chloride (NaCl) intravenous fluid has an osmolarity of 308 mOsmol/L.
Avizor highlighted that Ocu-Dry 0.30% has the lowest osmolarity level at 160-190m0sm/L and is also approved for overnight use.
Osmolarity of the solution was kept constant at 295-305 mOsm/L by increasing the potassium concentration from 4.2 mM to 40 mM while decreasing NaCl at the same ratio.
"Compared to cultured mammalian, avian and other vertebrate cells, insect cell cultures require fewer resources and less energy-intensive environmental control, as they have lower glucose requirements and can thrive in a wider range of temperature, pH, oxygen and osmolarity conditions," reported Rubio.

Strength and conditioning coach Richard Kirby says: "We've got a device where we look at the osmolarity of the urine samples that they give us in the morning.
Some studies have already been performed in adult cattle (RIBEIRO FILHO et al., 2009; RIBEIRO FILHO et al., 2011; RIBEIRO FILHO et al., 2013); however, many questions remain unanswered, including osmolarity, the correct electrolyte composition, energy precursor, and infusion rate for these animals.
