Extract:

“Also known as clysis, HDC is a process for administering isotonic fluids subcutaneously. This fluid replacement technique is less invasive than standard I.V. therapies and can be used in nonemergency situations. HDC is considered a safe, easy, effective, comfortable, and cost-effective way to treat mild-to-moderate dehydration for anyone who can’t drink enough fluids.1 HDC is especially useful for older adults who have a diminished thirst sensation and dehydration related to pneumonia or infection” Smith (2014).
