    I am translating on-screen text for a video, and they are using the words "electrolyte replacement solution" for liquids like pedialyte, etc. When I interpret, I would say suero oral in this case and possibly explain the term depending on the parent I am interpreting for. Is there another way to say this to more closely match electrlolyte replacement solution?

    If you Google several of these solutions, you will see that some call it "suero oral," and others call it "solución electrolítica de hidratación oral" or " solución electrolítica de rehidratación oral." I think you can use any of them. If you are interpreting for parents, sometimes you might want to explain it with more ordinary and mundane words, such as, "suero por boca para reponer las pérdidas de agua y sales."
