How long does rehydration take?
posted by trinity8-director to health & fitness (17 answers total)
So I spent a lovely time at the ER because my resting pulse rate was nearly double my normal rate. Turns out I stupidly let myself get dehydrated for several stupid reasons. I know! Stupid!
One bag of IV juice knocked the pulse rate down by 20 points and they turned me loose.
It got wondering, during one of several hundred trips to the restroom today, how long would it take to completely rehydrate after being that depleted?
OK, so nobody has enough data to say for sure but are we talking hours or days or...? Just looking for some kind of ballpark scale. Assume no special exertion or hot weather, etc., during the rehydration period.
Also, any special rehydration tips are welcome.
