Reducing Hospitalization with Hypodermoclysis
Our continuing nursing education courses are accredited by the California Board of Registered Nurses, the Georgia Board of Nursing, and the Florida Board of Nursing. All states (with the exception of Hawaii) recognize our courses for accredited continuing education contact hours.

An online continuing education course for nurses, medical health care professionals, and other interested individuals.

This instructional course has been designed to provide information regarding the use of hypodermoclysis, also known simply as clysis, to achieve rehydration in patients who might otherwise require hospitalization. Dehydration is a common occurrence, especially in the older population. Clysis is an optimal means of administering non-emergent parenteral fluids in a familiar, comfortable environment. This intervention is cost-effective, easy to administer, and safer than intravenous rehydration, but many nurses are unfamiliar with the therapy. This course will prepare the licensed clinician to provide this valuable intervention, thereby decreasing the risk of hospitalization with its associated risks and costs. This course provides 1.5 contact hours of continuing education. 

“Clysis” or subcutaneous rehydration intervention is cost-effective, easy to administer, and safer than intravenous rehydration, but many nurses are unfamiliar with the therapy. This course will prepare the licensed nurse to provide this valuable intervention, thereby decreasing the risk of hospitalization with its associated risks and costs.

In early 2016, the Infusion Nurses Society (INS), recognized as the global authority in infusion therapy, released the updated Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. The INS sets the accepted standards for infusion therapy practice for all healthcare settings. This course is based on the current best practices as defined by the Infusion Nursing Society and other governing agencies such as the CDC, and FDA.
