IV Hydration Q & A

What is intravenous (IV) hydration?

IV hydration refers to the intravenous delivery of natural fluids, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. It’s a rapid way to replenish the substances your body needs. 

When do I need IV hydration?

A number of situations may call for IV hydration, many of them falling within the primary care and urgent care categories, which are areas of specialty for EZMED Primary & Urgent Care. Some of the most common reasons that patients may need IV hydration are:

  • Dehydration
  • Flu
  • Severe cold
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Hangover
  • Jet lag
  • Nutrient deficiency
  • Athletic recovery
  • Detoxification

IV hydration can also provide a great energy boost when you’re feeling particularly worn out. The team can include specific nutrients in your IV infusion to provide the specific results you need. 

What is the IV hydration process like? 

During IV hydration, the EZMED Primary & Urgent Care team helps you relax in a comfortable spot. 

They prick the skin to insert a catheter, a long ultrathin tube that delivers your hydrating substances into your vein. Usually, IV hydration is administered through an arm vein, and the team tapes the catheter into place so it won’t slip.

You can take a short nap, read, or use your phone during treatment. Some people feel coolness around the catheter site, but it’s not uncomfortable and goes away once the treatment is over. 

You could also have a slight metallic taste in your mouth. This is also normal, and it fades quickly when treatment finishes. 

Do oral vitamins work as well as IV hydration? 

Not even close. You absorb as little as 30% of the oral vitamins you take, and that absorption process takes time because the vitamins must navigate your digestive system. 

IV hydration skips the whole digestive system, so you get 100% of the nutrients and fluids. They’re delivered right to your bloodstream, and you get their benefits right away. Most people feel better by the end of their 30- to 45-minute session. 

EZMED Primary & Urgent Care uses IV hydration products from the country’s No. 1 IV hydration product provider, Liquivida. This ensures you get the highest-quality hydration and enjoy the best results right away.
