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
  • Chemotherapy
  • 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.
