Summer Activities That Could Require IV Hydration Therapy  - Infographic.jpg

What is Dehydration

According to the Mayo Clinic, dehydration occurs when you lose more fluids than you are taking in because your body doesn’t have a sufficient amount of water to function properly. Dehydration can especially be a cause for concern when any age group spends time in hot weather and doesn’t drink enough water.

Most people can reverse moderate dehydration when they replenish themselves with fluids within a given time. But more severe dehydration will require immediate medical attention.

Causes & Symptoms

We tend to be very busy people and drinking the appropriate amount of water can be pushed to the side. Dehydration can occur by simply not drinking enough fluids when you are sick, busy, and even during exercise. But there can also be other causes of dehydration, including:

  • Diarrhea & Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Increased Urination

Increasing your water intake during the warmer months or when you feel sick is always important, as your body will require more water. The symptoms of dehydration can differ between age groups and can include:

Infants & Toddlers

  • Dry mouth or tongue

  • Sunken eyes

  • No tears when crying


  • Dark-colored urine

  • Fatigue

  • Confusion

If you are experiencing symptoms like these, consult with your primary physician immediately.

IV Therapy for Dehydration

IV therapy is a medical procedure that administers fluids, nutrients, or medications directly into the bloodstream. It effectively treats dehydration by rapidly rehydrating the body and supplying essential fluids and nutrients. Unlike drinking fluids, IV therapy directly absorbs fluids into the bloodstream, making it the preferred method for hydration.
