Dehydration occurs when the body suffers from a lack of fluids. A lot of people associate this illness with the elderly but the truth is anyone can get dehydrated. Exercise, alcohol, certain medications, and sickness can cause dehydration. The best remedy for this illness is IV therapy – intravenous hydration. How does this work? Here is a brief explanation: In opting for IV fluids, the doctor first prescribes what are known as isotonic drinks. The official definition of this term reveals that the dosage of the fluid dispositions are similar to the fluid that is found in joints although the pH levels are not as acidic. Isotonic fluids are hypotonic when readjusted to accommodate the body’s needs – dilute and isotonic when taken from the intestinal tract.
Now here is the nitty-gritty of the IV therapy: The procedure begins with a setup in the intensive care unit where the patient is lean and dehydration is ruled out. Next, five trays are filled with fluid which is then hooked up to the IV equipment. A Needle is inserted into each tray that delivers the fluid directly to the patient. Each of these five trays will have a different fluid type. The needles deliver between 90 and 140 ml of fluid.
After the five trays are filled, the needles are removed and an Urgent care provider comes in to do abdominal blood sampling to conclude the pregnancy. This is followed by vaginal sampling and a pregnancy test to verify the pregnancy. IVF is then used to induce labor.
Keep in mind that pregnancy is a multi-system procedure; it is not a one-time procedure. One day you need to be at the hospital for a procedure and the next day you will visit a doctor. Therefore, you will need to have a professional that can attend to all your needs. You will probably also need an entire staff to be responsible for the different rooms in the hospital. This can be expensive so you need to consider all your options before you sign up for these types of procedures.
Once all these tests have been conducted, the surgeon prepares the two syringes that will be used in the procedure. These syringes are filled with the same saline solution that is used in the procedure. As you can see, this is a highly invasive and not very safe procedure so it is best to avoid it unless absolutely necessary.
Since it is invasive and you will have a scar, it is best to seek the services of a professional that has extensive experience in this type of procedure. Alternatively, you can use a basic ultrasound that will help to detect the problem. Some think that this is a more accurate method of testing than a conventional ultrasound but you will just be wasting your money. When it comes to your health, you have to spend the cost that fits your medical insurance.
In any hospital, expect to spend a minimum of nine hours in the hospital – spend enough time sleeping, too. Many women have told us that they did not have enough time to rest during their entire stay. This is why it is so important to be sure you have someone that can accompany you to all your appointments and you will need at least two people to check in with you both at the hospital and when you are checking up at home. Whatever you do, make sure you do not take acetaminophen because it does not work well with blood, as it is hard on the stomach when you are drinking a lot and can interfere with some medications. Some medications can be eliminated by following certain guidelines when it comes to dosages and frequency, as well.
If you are staying at a hotel during your pregnancy, ask the hotel if they provide an After Hospital Care unit for expectant moms. This is a place to rest during your pregnancy and it also gives you a chance to catch up with books, magazines, and the like. Most hotels will let you know right away if there will be any changes or you will not be performing any functions inside that you had prior to your pregnancy. It will give you time to adjust and Once you feel back to your normal self, you can return to your normal daily activities.
