Depends: Some patients with dehydration also have low glucose and might need some IV infusion. In adults we usually infuse D50 or D25, just enough to increase the glucose and usually does not affect the red cells. In Neonates and small infants we can give D5( 5%) that also do not affect the red cells. If you give a large amount of D5 it can decrease the osmolarity of the blood and cause damage to red cell

95F or 35C: The definition of hypotermia is when a person has a temperature of 35C /95F or below.
A 33-year-old member asked:

Depends: Depends on the age, if the patient has an underlying disease and also the weather. Small babies can become dehydrated and die in a day. Older children and healthy teenagers, if they do not or drink anything can last for a couple of days ( can last as much as 7days). Same thing as healthy young adults. Senior patients and patients with liver or kidney disease might last less than that.
