ORAL VITAMINS VS IV VITAMINS

It’s simple, IV hydration and vitamin therapy work more effectively and faster.  Oral Vitamin goes through your digestive system, and IV goes directly where it needs to go. YOUR VEINS!  Because it skips your stomach, more absorption goes into your body from the vitamins instead of only a 50% absorption rate from your gut!  You feel better immediately, and your health and wellness balance is restored.

The Vascular Access Plus Infusion Center can provide services in the home if special arrangements are made in advance. You can reach out to us directly at 855-742-2827 or email infusioncenter@vascularaccessplus.com.

Do you provide Home Health services for IV therapy?

Vascular Access Plus is a HIT provider in Nebraska as a Home Health Infusion Agency. Orders come directly from your provider, and your insurance is billed for the nursing services and the medications provided by your pharmacy. Private Pay options are available to patients and caregivers for the nursing services provided.  Some services include IVIG, Remicade, lab draws, and PICC maintenance.

Do IV fluids work faster than drinking water?

IV fluids work faster because they enter your bloodstream directly, meaning the effects of hydration begin immediately. Hence, you feel better faster than when you drink a cup of water.

How long will IV fluids and nutrients stay in my system?

Unfortunately, this is not a direct question.  Several factors can make or break fluid retention.  Fluid retention is different than nutrient retention.  A whole 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated!  That is a large number.  Excess water will pass through the body and into the toilet more quickly for those hydrated.

Hydration status depends on how hydrated you are in the first place but has nothing to do with the vitamins.  Even if fluids from IV therapy are gone, Nutrients are retained in the body for much longer.  They can stay in the body for days, weeks, or even months.  This depends on what the body needs and what infusion cocktail you receive.   

How long will I be getting my infusion??

In our infusion Center, you register ahead of time so the IV medications you will be received are already. Once your IV is started the medication will be done in about 30-45 minutes.

How much IV fluid should I receive if I am dehydrated?

If you feel genuinely dehydrated, you should contact your care provider to figure out the cause of the dehydration. Severely dehydrated patients can have as much as a 10% fluid deficit.

Healthy individuals do not need to receive more than 1 Liter of Normal Saline.

 

Can you bill my insurance company if I come to the Infusion Center for IV hydration and Nutrition?

Our Infusion Center does not bill or accept insurance for its IV Hydration and Nutrition Services. You can pay in advance with a credit card, debit card, or health savings account can be used. A claim can be sent to insurance but is not guaranteed to be reimbursed.

What is IV hydration?

IV hydration therapy involves inserting an IV or intravenous catheter into an arm vein and connecting it to fluids.  These fluids can then go directly into your bloodstream.  Because the liquids can circulate in the body’s blood immediately, hydration is more immediate than just taking a drink and quickly enables the body to become hydrated. 

What are the reasons for receiving IV Hydration Therapy??

There are many reasons why people can seek out IV hydration therapy.  Dehydration is usually the number one.  Symptoms of dehydration can involve a dry mouth, headache, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, dark urine, and a constant feeling of thirst.  We mentioned being dehydrated, but that can’t be the only reason IV fluids can help.  What about those who have frequent migraines? What about those going out for a great bachelor/bachelorette party and knowing they will be drinking?  Recent Stomach bug?  Planning on working outside in the sun? Running a marathon soon? Need some stress relief? How about taking a long trip and drinking a lot on the way is not an option because stopping at every rest stop will make the constant sounds of “are we there yet” more terrifying.  These are just some examples of why IV hydration can benefit everyone! 

What if I don't have any chronic health conditions?

No matter what age or state of health, added IV nutrients could help.  Some other benefits of adding nutrition to IV hydration are increased immunity, a boost of energy, improved vision, relaxation, balancing hormones, body detox, smooth skin, and improved circulation.  EVERYONE can benefit from IV hydration and Nutrition therapy.

What is it like to get IV Fluids?

Besides the initial pinch of the IV start, IV hydration is a relaxing experience.  Depending on the infusion, the fluids take approximately 45 minutes to an hour to enter the bloodstream.  While you are waiting, you can sit back and relax.  There is immediate relief of symptoms when the fluids are done, and full benefits are felt appropriately 2-4 hours after leaving.  This process is entirely safe and has proven to be effective. 

Why can't I drink some water?

Hydration is essential, and the human body needs to be hydrated to complete its crucial daily functions, which we all learned about in science class. Thirst is the body signaling that it needs water. It can take hours for the body to absorb the fluid because it does not get absorbed by the large intestine until the end of the digestive tract.  Gulping a lot of fluids down quickly can cause other problems like digestive system pain and causes electrolyte imbalances.

**VAP IV HYDRATION does not think that oral hydration does not help with dehydration and encourages individuals to drink plenty of water!

 

Why can't people with diabetes have decadron as part of their Infusion?

People with diabetes have trouble controlling their blood sugar. Steroids, like dexamethasone, can cause a spike in blood sugar levels by making the liver resistant to insulin. VAP IV HYDRATION does not provide steroid infusion options to diabetics or prediabetics without an order from their provider.

Will it hurt when I get an IV started?

We cannot eliminate your pain, but we can minimize it. Our nurses are all experienced in starting an IV. A Vascular Access Specialist on call as a resource for troubleshooting and skills with ultrasound guidance for starting the IV 24/7.

Should athletes receive IV hydration?

Prevention and treatment of dehydration and exercise-associated muscle cramps are essential to the competitive athlete, so there is no decline in their athletic performance. IV hydration has been proposed as an ergogenic aid to achieve hydration more effectively and efficiently.
