JaneEyre9 Posted July 6, 2007 Report Share Posted July 6, 2007 How fast do you get your IV fluids? I got 2 liters today in about an hour because the EMTs were eager to move things along. I started to feel better during the first liter, but at the end of the second liter, I felt my heart rate spike and there was a "coolness" in my chest and throat that was very uncomfortable. I wondered if anyone here has had that type of reaction from getting IV fluids too quickly.Also, if EMTs giving them at home are not able to wait for me to get them slowly, do any of you have another way of getting IV fluids at home? Usually when I need an IV, I'm shaking and feeling so terrible that a trip out to a clinic or office is sort of out of the question.Thanks for your help!
