Intravenous IV hydration Therapy
Intravenous (IV) rehydration is a treatment that is used for moderate to severe cases of dehydration. IV rehydration is a treatment that involves injecting fluids into the veins. The fluid solutions may be different depending on the situation, but are usually water with a little bit of salt or sugar added. The solution is kept in a bag that is raised up over the patient’s head. The bag is attached to a tube with a needle on the end. The needle goes into a vein in the arm and the amount of fluid that goes into the vein is controlled.
