Treatment for Altitude Sickness
For those visiting Breckenridge, Altitude Sickness is very common. The medical term for this condition is acute mountain sickness or AMS. For visitors to the area that are no used to the high altitude of 9000+ feet in town, this usually occurs within 1 to 24 hours of ascending to altitude.
Common symptoms include headache, fatigue or exhaustion, lightheadedness, loss of appetite, insomnia or restless sleeping, and nausea.
Untreated, the duration of these symptoms generally is 24 to 48 hours and may not improve if the individual does not seek treatment.
The two most efficient and effective treatments for AMS are getting rehydrated and oxygenating the blood.
Vida-Flo provides both of these services and can have you feeling your best in no time. By receiving just one infusion of 1000 mL Lactated Ringer (saline solution & electrolytes) you are providing your body with the equivalent of drinking 2.5 gallons of water.
Combined with our anti-inflammatory Toradol (for pain/headache) and the antiemetic Zofran (for nausea), we IMMEDIATELY eliminate the symptoms of AMS while the IV fluids are working their magic.
