Alternatives to serum therapy
Hypodermoclysis can be an alternative method of hydration to serum therapy. It is a method of administering fluids and medication at the level of the subcutaneous cellular tissue. It is a technique that causes less pain and discomfort and is easier to maintain. In addition, it generates less infections compared to the intravenous level.
Fluid administration is usually placed in the anterior or lateral wall of the thorax, under the breast, abdominal wall, scapula or the anterolateral and anterolateral medial parts of the thigh.
This method is mostly used in the elderly when it is more difficult to cannulate venous access.
