Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) January 6, 2006
PTS Labs LLC, maker of ReVital pediatric health products, has launched http://www.revitalenlinea.com, a Spanish language website providing information on oral rehydration therapy. Oral rehydration therapy using a pediatric electrolyte oral maintenance solution is recommended by more pediatricians than any other treatment for fluid loss due to diarrhea and vomiting and to prevent dehydration.
Across the United States, more than 300 children under age 5 die each year from dehydration-related electrolyte imbalances. Maintaining the correct balance of water and electrolytes in the body is critical, especially when a child experiences episodes of diarrhea or vomiting. Loss of fluids and electrolytes can create a dangerous imbalance which can prevent organs – including the heart – from working properly. Electrolyte therapy replaces fluids and electrolytes quickly, helping to prevent dehydration.
“As an innovator in pediatric health products, we are the first company to develop pediatric electrolyte packaging that is fully bilingual in both English and Spanish,” stated Mary Kay Staten Long, President and CEO of PTS Labs. “The logical extension was to provide additional information to our Spanish speaking consumers via a Spanish language website. Fortunately, we were able to complete it just in time for the flu season.”
With the launch of http://www.revitalenlinea.com, PTS Labs becomes the first U.S. provider of pediatric electrolyte products to have a separate Spanish language website.
