Sub-Q fluids. That's the user friendly terminology for subcutaneous
fluids. They use a big needle attached to an IV type bag, they just give the fluid
under the skin rather than in a vein. You can use either lactated ringers solution,
or saline solution, personally, I would go with saline, as it's got less in it, and
is less apt to cause any reactions.
