Surgical Wellness and Travel
Many people avoid drinking fluids prior to air travel because they don’t want to get up to use the restroom during their flight. Unfortunately, this is one of the most detrimental things you can do to your body before traveling. Dehydration can cause a number of serious problems, and blood clots are one of the most concerning. As we age, the blood vessels in our legs tend to become less functional and allow blood to pool. When you combine this phenomenon with long bouts of sitting and poor hydration, you greatly increase your risk of a blood clot forming. If this clot moves to the lungs, and is large enough, the results can be devastating.
At Intravenous Solutions, we highly encourage travelers to adequately hydrate and take other preventative measures to protect their health before a flight. Our IV therapy package for travelers includes everything your body needs to stay healthy in the air, and our licensed health care providers will discuss these preventive measures and other important considerations with you before your trip. It’s quite common for other travelers to fly with colds and other contagious illnesses, so we’ve added vitamin C to provide your immune system with the support it needs to fight off germs and bacteria.
We offer two- and three-day pre-travel packages of up to 2 liters (2,000 milliliters) of electrolyte solution or normal saline, (per day) as well as vitamin C (one dose per day).
