Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Implements ORAL I.V. Hydration Aid

Initial Order from Warrior Wound Care Will Be Deployed to Specialty Units Including SWAT, K9, EOD, HIDTA and Search & Rescue

ALAMO, Calif. – September 16, 2013 – The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) has implemented the ORAL I.V. hydration aid product across multiple specialty units county-wide. The deployment includes SWAT, K9, EOD, HIDTA, Lake Patrol, Search and Rescue, HSU, VCU, CAST, and the Animal Crimes Unit.  The MCSO has received its initial order for 1,500 ORAL I.V. four-packs and will be issuing the product to approximately 200 deputies and detectives for use in training and missions. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is a fully integrated law enforcement agency and serves one of the largest jurisdictions in the country, comprising 9,200 square miles and over 4 million residents.

Our office and specifically our SWAT team have found ORAL I.V. to be a very useful and effective product,” said Deputy Mike Puente, sniper instructor for the SWAT Division, Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. “ORAL I.V. was introduced to us about two years ago by Warrior Wound Care and has been used on numerous occasions. Working and living in the desert is hard enough as it is, but doing all that for extended hours on missions, in training, or conducting schools for other agencies, makes it that much harder. ORAL I.V. has allowed our team to stay on task despite extreme temperatures and extended hours in the heat. It immediately hydrates and allows us to proceed with the mission at hand.”

Continued Deputy Puente, “We have been so impressed with the product that at every SWAT school or sniper school we put on, we hand out samples so the other ‘boots on the ground’ can also complete their mission of saving lives. When other teams and officers are having a hard time maintaining hydration or focus, we no longer worry about that because it has become common practice to take ORAL I.V. before a mission or a training day. As ORAL I.V. might be a new product to most, for our team, it is a necessity.”

ORAL I.V. is a revolutionary hydration aid product based on a proprietary formula of crystalloid electrolytes in purified water. ORAL I.V. is intended to assist an individual’s existing hydration strategy and can be used along with water in any environment, condition or situation where physical exertion or the possibility of dehydration exists. ORAL I.V. does not contain any sugars, caffeine or stimulants, or artificial ingredients. The product is packaged in lightweight, individual 15 mL vials so it can easily be included in tactical kits. 

Law enforcement agencies can purchase ORAL I.V. from Warrior Wound Care, the product’s exclusive distributor for the military, law enforcement and first responder markets. ORAL I.V. is also available via GSA Advantage at; reference Warrior Wound Care’s GSA schedule (GSA Contract V797D-30120) or contact  Product information is also available at
