How IV Therapy Works
To administer IV rehydration, our pediatric doctor will insert an IV line into a vein in the child’s arm. The pediatrician determines the type of fluid that will be needed. The choice of fluid depends on age, existing medical conditions, and the severity of dehydration. The length of the child’s treatment time and the amount of fluids that your child needs will also depend on the severity of dehydration.
How to Know When IV Hydration Is Needed
IV therapy is predominantly utilized for when children are dehydrated, but this form of treatment can treat many other conditions. IV fluids can be used to treat the following symptoms:
- Vomiting for a number of days
- Inability to eat or drink
Our pediatric team determines the level of the need for IV hydration based on the difficulty of drawing blood and with a urine test. IV fluids can be regularly given to patients who fail to meet their normal fluid levels or electrolyte needs.

The Benefits of IV Therapy
IV fluids are known to step in and help many illnesses that children may be experiencing. One of the main benefits of utilizing IV fluids is that is it helps a patient retain more nutrients for their digestive system. Children are notorious for undergoing digestive problems, but an IV allows the body to absorb the fluids that will not irritate the digestive tract and to help combat aches and pains.
Children tend to endure plenty of injuries during their youth, such as broken bones, soreness, and more. When being checked into a pediatric clinic for medical care, an IV can help reduce the recovery time and have your child return to being active and healthy. Most importantly, IV therapy is customized to treat and support all body types. Patients can expect to receive the optimal amount of fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients necessary to feel their best.
