IV Hydration Therapy
Hydration with Electrolytes
Intravenous (IV) hydration is used to treat moderate to severe cases of dehydration. During IV hydration, fluids will be infused through an IV catheter placed in your arm. The infusion consists of fluid and electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and calcium.
Compared to oral intake of fluids, intravenous fluid are rapidly absorbed and it does not cause bloating, nausea and fullness.
Our IV hydration provides the replacement electrolytes that you need after illness, excessive perspiration or over-consumption of alcohol. Our IV infusions with the "hang-over cocktail" are intended to treat and reduce hangover symptoms.
If you’re moderately to severely dehydrated, you don’t simply need pure water, for the most physiologic replacement you need an electrolyte solution. It’s vital that you replace not only water, but also minerals like calcium, sodium and potassium. The best way to get electrolytes fast is through an IV infusion at the Infusion and Injection Clinic of Albuquerque.
