The demand for hydration comes when a patient finds themselves lacking in an acceptable amount of fluids. The process generally involves an IV drip and is carried out in a sterile environment. The fluids being introduced to the patient are simple and generally contain a mixture of water and either salt or sugar. PRP therapy or plasma rich platelet therapy is a little different in that it is a specific amount of the patient’s own blood which goes through a process and is returned to the patient through an injection. This process takes approximately 20 minutes and is intended to accelerate tissue healing for the patient.
Recovering with chelation
One of the treatment options for a patient faced with metal poisoning is chelation therapy. This might be considered as effective by some who have received positive results, however, there are some risks involved. The entire process must be carried out by someone experienced with the process, especially since the possibility of the patient’s demise is a concern. It is important to note that the risk of chelation therapy side effects is considerably lower if administered appropriately and without exceeding the approved dosage. Patients who receive their therapy outside of the recommended guidelines can end up with neurodevelopmental disorders and possibly cancer. There are a few common side effects which include the following.
● Cardiac arrhythmias or an irregular heartbeat.
● Allergic reactions which take on different forms such as asthma attacks.
● Damage to the kidneys which could cause the patient to require dialysis.
● Brain damage resulting in cognitive functions being affected.
● Other side effects such as headaches, diarrhea and a drop in blood pressure.
Strength in vitamins
Some people have a difficult time remembering to take their vitamins. The ones that do may not always follow the recommended dosage. Vitamins are an important part of our individual health requirements and for those who lack this important resource, there is always vitamin iv therapy. This is another form of IV therapy that is generally administered when the patient lacks a particular vitamin and needs to get it on board in a hurry. Most patients receive results almost immediately in the area of energy. Vitamins are important for treating a variety of ailments which include headaches, arthritis, anxiety and chronic fatigue. This therapy is probably not recommended to replace the vitamins in your medicine cabinet, however, in a controlled environment, it can work wonders for a patient.
