Hydration therapy treats dehydration and replaces fluid loss secondary to many disease conditions or medical treatments, such as:
- Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) during pregnancy
- Crohn’s disease
- Radiation therapy
Carmichael’s requires a referral from the patient’s doctor or the hospital caseworker in order to deliver the proper medications and application equipment.
The delivery system for hydration therapy includes one of the following:
- An ambulatory pump that allows the patient to move around;
- A stationary pump, on an IV pole for patients who are less mobile; or,
- The appropriate rate-regulated tubing, which does not require a pump.
Please contact a Carmichael’s representative to discuss any hydration therapy needs, to request additional information or to check your insurance or other available coverage.
