* D5 plus NS/LR as maintenance fluids?

  can someone please clarify to me if using hypertonic fluids like d5lr or d10lr is ok to use as maintenance fluid, IN AN NPO PATIENT?

my understanding is that even though this fluid is hypertonic, this can be used in npo as maintenance fluids since it also provides calories, and the dextrose gets metabolized leaving behind the isotonic fluid?
