Important Safety Information
Electrolytes are electrically charged particles in your body that help balance your body’s water and fluid levels, mobilize nutrients and waste throughout your body’s cells, and ensure proper function of your heart, brain, muscles, and nerves. Examples of electrolytes include sodium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, and phosphate. You can get these electrolytes naturally from your diet, but dramatic changes in your body’s water content (such as over-hydration or dehydration) may require special treatment to restore proper electrolyte balance.
What is the most important information I should know about hydration infusions?
Infusion of electrolytes into the body works by delivering hydration and essential nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Since it bypasses the digestive system, patients feel the effect of electrolytes faster and receive a significantly higher absorption rate.
Treatment for Pregnant Women
Electrolyte infusions can be an effective treatment for the dehydration many women experience due to morning sickness. Since nausea and vomiting can negatively impact one’s appetite and digestive equilibrium, IV electrolytes can also treat nutrient-deficiency brought on by these symptoms.
If you are considering hydration infusions during your pregnancy, first consult with your OB-GYN or another qualified healthcare provider to request a referral.
Treatment for Cancer Patients
Cancer and cancer treatments (such as chemotherapy) can often lead to bodily imbalances, nausea, and vomiting. Patients who are experiencing these symptoms may benefit from electrolyte infusion therapy to help restore proper hydration and nutrient levels to the body.
