How It Works

Jacobs IV Hydration Process



Before beginning the IV hydration treatment, you will have a consultation with our in-house Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) to discuss your health history and any current medical conditions. We will also explain the benefits and potential risks of Jacobs IV hydration and answer any questions you may have.

Select Treatment Options

Selection of fluids and nutrients: During the consultation, you will choose the fluids and nutrients that will be included in your IV infusion treatment. Options may include electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that are tailored to your specific needs and desires.

Preparation for Treatment

Before the IV infusion begins, the medical professional will clean the area on your arm where the IV will be inserted and place a tourniquet to help locate a suitable vein. They will then insert the IV into your vein using a tiny IV needle.

Infusion & Monitoring

Once the IV is in place, the fluids and nutrients will be slowly infused into your bloodstream over a period of time, typically between 30 minutes and an hour. Our medical staff will monitor your vital signs during the infusion to ensure that you are tolerating the treatment well. They will also be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.


After the IV infusion is complete, the IV will be removed and a bandage will be applied to the insertion site. The effects of an IV Treatment are fairly quick - thus you should already start to feel the effects of the nutrients and the rehydration. You will be given instructions on how to care for the site and advised on any follow-up care that may be necessary.
