    Edit: I misread your op, beyond common iv solutions you will probably need to go w overseas suppliers I would think. Still, I'm sure these can be found.

    and also this idea sounds pretty dangerous to me and I really hope you know what you're doing.
    Thanks for the lead. I will follow up with survivalist forums as well.

    I think this iv drip thing is pushing for a new fad. I heard of a place that’s going to open up it’s going to offer myofascial stretching and Iv drips... go figure.
    There is science behind it, but there is also pop culture. It became a popular trend a few years back I think. Dr. Oz might have started it---not entirely sure---which led to a lot of "drip spas" opening up around the country. People think of it as this new inventive thing, when IV drips have been used by hospitals for generations. Anyone who has visited a hospital knows this. The first thing they do with any traumatic injury or illness is put your on an IV saline drip. This is standard procedure in the hospitals, because fluids are so important for wound healing and so many other functions (it also facilitates administration of other IV meds). This is not something novel or dangerous; it is the most basic and conventional medical practice of the past century. This so-called "fad" of pop culture is behind the times by about 100 years. Leave it to Hollywood to repackage basic medicine as a breakthrough super-cure.
