Subcutaneous Rehydration

The Subcutaneous Rehydration Device (SRD) is a self-contained system for delivery of subcutaneous fluid in children which may be placed by individuals with little or no clinical training. SRD provides a minimally invasive means for early and reliable fluid administration which bypasses the need for venous access, is more comfortable non-bolus parenteral fluid delivery, and has lower risk of intravascular infection.  These benefits have the potential to save some of the >1.5 million young lives lost worldwide each year to dehydrating illness.
