What does IV Hydration Do

Intravenous hydration is the most direct and efficient way to prevent dehydration, or rehydrate the body. If you are in the hospital for an operation, or something more severe than a common cold, you have probably experienced an IV before.

Why do you need IV Hydration?

IV Hydration bypassess your body’s ingestion system and delivers a steady and reliable source of water straight to the source. Our bodies are mostly water, and replenishing them quickly and efficiently helps to improve our total health. IV Hydration is especially important for

Dehydration- IV Hydration starkly reduces the time of dehydration. The less time the body is dehydrated, the less symptoms of dehydration you have to deal with.

Nausea or Vomiting- It can be hard to drink or keep water down when you do not feel good. With direct IV Hydration you can regain the nutrients and water you need without having to swallow.

Sun Sickness- It is summer, and the days are bright and long. You may not even realize how dehydrated you are, or it may set in later after the sunburn. If you are feeling sluggish, or experience a headache, it is a sign you are probably dehydrated.

Serious Burns- Burn on your skin cause a fluctuation in how water is dispersed, so you want to supply your body with an abundance of fluid to help it allocate all that hydration.

Surgery or Prolonged Hospital Stay- The most common use of IV Hydration. To help patients in a long term stay, or patients who are unconscious during operations, stay hydrated.

1. Aches, Pain, or Headaches

How is an IV Administered?

A healthcare professional will assess your fluid need, and what type of IV fluid to provide. You may be dehydrated, or nutrient deficient. They will select a solution that is appropriate for your needs. Then they will select an administration site, usually a vein on your forearm. A band will be applied, called a tourniquet, to increase blood flow to the area. Then a needle and tube are inserted into the vein, and IV flow is assessed.
