To help those recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, all of these hardworking folks are choosing to volunteer their time to travel many miles away.

The shortage means life threatening conditions for some patients.

Hospitals across the United States are reporting a shortage of IV bags during one of their busiest seasons.

Xcel employees will be working in and around the eastern part of the island.

"When Hurricane Maria was heading towards the island, we were notified very quickly that there was going to be an issue with supply, and the supply was already tenuous", said Dr. James Bunch, director of Clinical Pharmacy for Mat-Su Valley Regional.

Denver based Xcel Energy is sending crews to Puerto Rico to help with the ongoing power restoration efforts.

Hospital officials, pharmacists and other staff have been devising alternatives and workarounds, training doctors and nurses on new procedures and options, and hitting the phones to try to secure fluids from secondary suppliers.

Thompson said Freeman does the same and, like other hospitals across the country, has been more careful to use IV fluids only when necessary.

Patel said a team at Duke met to discuss the shortage.and to devise a solution.

"Given the improvements we've seen over the last few weeks, I'm optimistic that supplies of IV saline and amino acids will increase over the next few weeks and the stress of the shortage will begin to abate, even if the shortages will not be fully resolved immediately". A request for similar information to Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg was not returned. Despite the lack of leadership, however, they said "miracles" are happening everyday as the people of Puerto Puerto Rico respond heroically to the challenges.

"We have seen an increase in the number of flu cases compared to previous year". Intermittent power outages, however, have slowed Baxter's attempts to get back to full production, and only a few other companies make such products. "People are doing things to preserve their supply".
