Dehydration, kidney damage, 'passing out', falls, muscle damage etc could result ...Read more

16 weeks pregnant and have severe nausea and vomiting and at the ER, passed out took samples but no IV fluids, shouldn't we be hooked up to IV?
Depends...: It all depends on how dehydrated they estimated you were.
