We are getting toward the end of winter, but the stomach flu and other viral gastrointestinal (GI) syndromes are just beginning to hit us hard! Contrary to popular belief, the stomach flu, which is not caused by Influenza in most cases, is most prevalent the in late winter and early spring. Most GI syndromes which cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are produced by viruses other than Influenza. These viruses typically cause a few days of loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping. This leads to dehydration.
Once you are dehydrated it is difficult to take in enough fluids orally to make up for the fluid and electrolyte losses caused by the virus.
Our mobile hydration services are the perfect cure! We provide IV fluids, medications for nausea, and replacement of vital electrolytes and nutrients. We do all of this in the comfort of your home!
When you receive the IV fluids it bypasses the GI tract and allows for 100% reabsorption. This promotes faster healing and recovery times!
You don’t have to wait in the Emergency department. Most treatments are less expensive than Emergency department visits and co-pays.
