IV for Altitude Sickness
Arizona is home to many mountains—the state’s average elevation is a towering 4,100 feet—so there are lots of opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, and more. It’s hard to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, however, if you have altitude sickness. Mobile IV Nurses specializes in fast and convenient IV therapy for many issues, including high altitude sickness treatment, so you can get back out there and tackle the slopes.
Altitude Sickness Symptoms
When you’re on a mountain such as Humphreys Peak, Fremont Peak, or Mount Baldy, oxygen and air pressure levels are lower than they are when you’re closer to sea level. That change can result in altitude sickness. You may feel:
- Nausea or vomiting
- A dizzy or lightheaded sensation
- Problems sleeping
- Shortness of breath
- Lack of appetite
- Rising heart rate
Symptoms usually appear soon after you’ve moved from a low to high altitude. And these symptoms can stick around–mild altitude sickness can last up to 36 hours. Altitude sickness may also worsen, causing extreme fatigue and mental confusion, as well as issues with the lungs, heart, or nervous system requiring medical attention. IV fluids for mild altitude sickness offer quick symptom relief.
Effective Altitude Sickness Treatment
IV therapy works well for easing symptoms of altitude sickness. Each drip IV contains fluids packed with vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes the body needs to feel better. Plus, IV therapy infuses these powerful fluids right into the bloodstream, so they get to work faster than oral medications that need to pass through the digestive system before activating.
From Surprise to Sedona, Arizona, altitude sickness can be treated with IV fluids from Mobile IV Nurses. We deliver high-quality IV therapy services to your home, hotel room, or other convenient location so you can rest and relax during treatment.
Recommended IV for Altitude Sickness
A Myers’ Cocktail with anti-nausea medication is an ideal liquid IV for altitude sickness. The Myers’ Cocktail contains vitamins and minerals, such as B Complex vitamins, vitamin B12, vitamin C, magnesium, and the antioxidant glutathione, which are essential for improving energy levels and fighting fatigue. It’s a powerful combination designed to get you back on your feet fast.
At Mobile IV Nurses, you have the option to add supplements and medications to your IVs. We suggest enhancing your Myers’ Cocktail IV with an anti-nausea medication, such as Zofran, which helps with symptom relief so you can get acclimated to the higher altitude. Our staff of registered nurses and paramedics can help you tailor your IV therapy to your specific needs.
