What is intravenous hydration? 

Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy is a rejuvenating treatment that involves infusing nourishing mixtures of nutrients directly into your bloodstream through a catheter. These nutrient-rich IV solutions absorb more quickly and more effectively than they do when you the same vitamins and minerals orally as your digestive system is not involved.

At the beginning of your session, your nurse practitioner places a flexible catheter into a vein in your arm. A single IV hydration service takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, giving you near-immediate results. 

Maria Cole Family Practice has plenty of hydrating options for IV therapy, which they formulate to meet your specific needs. Your nurse practitioner helps you decide which treatment to get.

What should I expect after IV hydration therapy?

IV hydration is a very safe treatment when you get it under direct physician supervision. Your nurse practitioner stays in the room with you throughout the treatment and monitors your body’s responses. 

When the infusion is complete, you may experience benefits right away. Your nurse practitioner advises you of possible side effects and tells you how to tell the difference between normal occurrences and possible signs of a complication. 

You can expect some mild irritation at the infusion site, but Maria Cole Family Practice follows safety guidelines to minimize the possibility of an infection or overinfusion.
