Preparing For IV Hydration & Vitamin Therapy


 

Preparing for IV Hydration/Vitamin Therapy

General guidelines to follow before a hydration/vitamin infusion

What to Wear

Wear comfortable, loose clothing. Your shirt sleeves should be able to roll up above the elbow to get a small IV catheter placed for the infusion. We can vary the room temperature and provide you with pillows and blankets to maintain a comfortable temperature for you.

Your Medications

Take your regular morning medications unless the doctor requests otherwise.

Food & Beverages

No restrictions for eating or drinking, however, avoiding or limiting alcohol and caffeine intake is helpful.

Timing

Plan to arrive at your scheduled time for each infusion. You will spend approximately 15-20 minutes preparing for the infusion (physical exam, taking vital signs, ask questions, getting a small IV catheter placed). From there, infusions are typically 30-45 minutes long.
