An intravenous (I.V.) drip is a common treatment for moderate-to-severe dehydration. Many people have even turned to the I.V. drip for hangover cures, finding that it alleviates the unpleasant symptoms associated with a night of drinking. Come into Chai Urgent Care today to receive I.V. care for dehydration and hangovers so you can get back on your feet and feel better faster.
How Does an I.V. Work?
When a doctor or nurse administers an I.V., essential substances are delivered directly into the patient’s veins. The drip bag contains material that is transferred through the cannula, the long tube connecting the bag to the needle. The composition of the I.V. treatment depends on a variety of factors, like age, existing medical conditions, and symptom severity. It typically includes water and a small amount of sugar or salt and pain relievers if needed. As it flows, the I.V. liquid travels through a needle that is securely inserted into your vein. This relatively simple assembly provides important care for patients experiencing the effects of dehydration and even hangovers. And while you will feel a small prick when the needle is inserted, the I.V. treatment itself is easy and painless.
How Do I Know if I Need I.V. Care in NJ & NY?
Rehydration is one of the main reasons to deliver I.V. care. In more specialized medical settings, I.V.s are used for blood transfusions or to administer medication. However, at Chai Urgent Care, we specialize in dehydration I.V. care, especially as it relates to treating hangovers.
Dehydration is the excessive loss of water and electrolytes (i.e. dissolved salts) from your body. Normal water loss occurs through different processes, including sweating, breathing, urinating, defecating, tearing up or crying, and salivating. While most of these bodily activities are part of our day-to-day routines, losing too much water without replacing it can cause dehydration.
The most common symptoms of dehydration include:
- Reduced urine output
- Dry skin, eyes, lips, or tongue
- Rapid breathing
- Cool, blotchy extremities
Alcohol can also dehydrate you, causing the dreaded hangover headache. As a diuretic, alcohol causes your body to excrete fluid through your renal system at a fast rate. Because of this, drinking a lot of alcohol can quickly dehydrate you. If you experience dehydration symptoms after a period of heavy drinking, visit one of Chai Urgent Care’s many locations to receive I.V. drip treatment.
