The Purely Saline Package
What Is in a Saline IV Solution?
There are only two ingredients in normal saline IV fluids: sterile water and sodium chloride. We use 0.9% sodium chloride solution (also called normal saline), which is common in IV bags. While saline works well on its own, it’s also an effective delivery system for vitamins, minerals, and other supplements.
The tiny particles of sodium chloride make this an isotonic crystalloid solution. The sodium chloride easily passes from the bloodstream into the cells and tissues of the body, creating fluid balances in and outside of cells. When the body’s fluid levels are balanced, along with oxygen and electrolyte levels, this is called homeostasis, and it ensures our bodies function at their best.
Why Is Saline Used in IV Fluid?
IV saline is essential—if a bag contained only water, it would be drawn into the cellular membrane, causing it to rupture and kill off the cell. Saline allows for proper fluid balance inside and outside cells, and it helps the body maintain proper levels of electrolytes. The body relies on electrolytes to fulfill a number of functions, such as maintaining blood pressure, hydration levels, muscle activity, and more.
The amount of saline in IV fluids can be adjusted for different types of treatment. Crystalloid solutions like those in a normal saline bag come in three forms: isotonic, hypotonic, and hypertonic. While isotonic solutions maintain a fluid balance both inside and outside the cells, hypertonic solutions draw water out of cells as hypotonic fluids go into the cells. The type of IV saline solution depends on a person’s specific health needs. This is why it’s important to get a saline IV from a provider that uses medical professionals to administer all infusions. Mobile IV Nurses has a team of registered nurses or paramedics (depending on your service area) who are experts in IV therapy.
Who Should Get a Saline IV Drip?
The Starter Package offers patients a perfect introduction to IV therapy if they haven’t tried it before. It’s also beneficial for anyone with allergies or sensitivities to particular vitamins or minerals. Saline’s potent hydration alleviates many symptoms, making it a great all-purpose IV infusion.
When Do Medical Professionals Use Saline?
Because saline IVs are so effective at balancing fluids in the body, medical professionals often use them to hydrate patients. The human body is about 60 percent water, and those fluids are vital for the body to function properly. Saline solution replaces those fluids and supports essential functions such as muscle movement and nerve impulses.
IV treatments infuse fluids directly into the bloodstream. That provides rapid rehydration, which is helpful when dehydration is an issue. IVs also ensure maximum absorption of any vitamins or minerals contained in the IV fluids. This makes IV therapy an effective method of symptom relief for a variety of health conditions.
Symptoms Alleviated With Normal Saline
A normal saline IV bag targets dehydration, which is associated with several health conditions:
- Colds and the flu: It’s easy to get dehydrated when you are vomiting or have a fever or diarrhea. A saline IV hydrates so you can recover faster from your symptoms.
- Hangovers: Alcohol overconsumption often leads to dehydration. Your body gets much-needed fluids and electrolytes from IV saline solution.
- Athletic recovery: When you work hard, you sweat away a lot of body fluids. Saline rehydrates and helps you rebound quickly from strenuous physical activity.
- Morning sickness: A pure, high-grade normal saline solution helps expectant moms who are feeling the effects of persistent morning sickness. Plus, it’s safe for them and their baby.
- Migraines: Dehydration is a common cause of migraine attacks.
You may be in need of a rehydrating normal saline IV if you experience some common dehydration symptoms:
- Infrequent urination
- Chronic thirst (especially if it doesn’t go away after drinking water)
