According to the following article, "infusion at rates of up to 250 - 400 mL/h have been shown to be well tolerated"


Does this mean the colon absorbs 250-400 ml of water every hour? And is it being continuously administered by a drip? Or is the fluid administered in a single dose and then left to be absorbed before more is added? I'm not a medical student, so a lot of the terms in the article don't make sense to me.
