IV Hydration Care
Dr. Michael Farzam and the House Call Doctor Los Angeles team administer IV hydration therapy for patients. It is performed when individuals are dehydrated and will benefit from rapid rehydration, as well as for therapeutic and wellness purposes.
Urgent Care Rehydration
IV hydration may sometimes be administered on an urgent basis in a number of instances. These include:
- Stomach flu and other gastrointestinal illnesses
- Vomiting and/or diarrhea due to any cause
- Extended high fevers
- Excessive alcohol consumption (hangovers)
- Excessive sweating caused by physical exertion, drug reactions, and other causes.
Why IV Hydration?
Most of the time, people are able to take in all they fluid they need simply by drinking and eating normally. When individuals become ill, sweat excessively, or engage in binge drinking, however, the standard medical advice is to consume more water and keep well hydrated by avoiding substances with diuretic properties, such as those containing caffeine or alcohol. However, there are times when bypassing the stomach and getting fluids directly into the bloodstream is the best treatment, either to avoid a possible emergency or simply to help speed up the process of recovery.
Hospitals typically use this technique for ill patients, often including infants and the elderly, but it’s possible to obtain this treatment on a less emergent basis at home. If you believe that speedy hydration is called for in your case, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Farzam, and don’t wait for a relatively mild case of dehydration to turn into a genuine emergency. He will be there to look at your overall situation to make sure that IV hydration is called for and to make sure it’s administered appropriately.
IV Hydration Therapy for Wellness
In addition to helping recovery from an acute medical condition, an increasing number of people are taking advantage of hydration in order to improve their overall health and vigor, or to deal with a number of acute and chronic medical problems. Specifically, more and more patients are taking advantage of a Myer’s Cocktail, a saline solution containing a number of powerful nutrients.
Myer’s Cocktail users are very often sufferers of such common issues as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, asthma, hangover, migraine headaches, and various types of pain. Many report outstanding results with regular treatments. For more information on Myer’s cocktail therapy,see this page
