Answer

Glucose supplement

This agent is used to raise the patient's serum glucose level.

Dextrose (Glucose-D)

Monosaccharide, absorbed from intestine and distributed, stored, and used by tissues. Parenterally injected dextrose is used in patients unable to obtain adequate oral intake; direct oral absorption results in rapid increase of blood glucose concentrations. Effective in small doses; no evidence indicates that it may cause toxicity; concentrated infusions provide higher amounts of glucose and increased caloric intake with minimum fluid volume.
