IV Hydration


Intravenous (IV) hydration is a medical procedure that involves delivering fluids and electrolytes directly into the bloodstream through a vein. This method is used to address dehydration or electrolyte imbalances quickly and efficiently.


  • Rapid rehydration for individuals who are unable to drink fluids adequately.
  • May help with fatigue, headaches, and certain medical conditions.
  • Can deliver essential nutrients and medications directly into the bloodstream.


  • Can be expensive and may not be covered by insurance.
  • Carries a small risk of infection or complications at the insertion site.
  • Not a substitute for good overall hydration practices.


  • Oral rehydration solutions (ORS) for mild dehydration.
  • Increased intake of fluids and electrolytes through diet.

Recovery Time

There is no downtime associated with IV hydration. However, you may experience some minor discomfort at the insertion site, which typically resolves quickly.


IV hydration should only be administered by a qualified medical professional. It’s important to discuss your individual needs and any potential risks with your doctor before undergoing IV hydration.
