IV Fluid Treatment in Miami-Dade

Loss of body fluids from sickness, heat, or excessive activity is a common occurrence in Miami. However, when your body loses too much fluid and it is not quickly replaced, you can become dehydrated.

If you’re experiencing signs of dehydration and require IV hydration, you can walk in to any nearby UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center without an appointment and be seen quickly by a UHealth – University of Miami Health System board-certified doctor.

Our doctors and providers will perform a full examination and ask about your symptoms. If deemed necessary, after determining that there are no underlying serious medical conditions, a doctor will begin treating you with intravenous fluids, also known as IV fluids. IV fluids contain potassium, glucose, and sodium, which are electrolytes your body needs to function properly. During an IV hydration treatment, an area of the skin is disinfected before an IV catheter is inserted into the vein. From there, fluids are delivered through the IV and directly into your bloodstream to help you feel better as soon as possible.
