Ve­gas rev­el­ers get on board for unique hang­over rem­edy

Modern Healthcare - - OUTLIERS -

If you’ve par­tied just a lit­tle too hard in Sin City, you can now seek sal­va­tion the next morn­ing from Hang­over Heaven.

Board Dr. Ja­son Burke’s anti-hang­over bus—which of­fers a “sta­ble” and “ul­tra-smooth ride” that’s gen­tle on queasy stom­achs and pound­ing heads—and you can get back to the poker ta­ble af­ter only 45 min­utes of treat­ment.

Burke, a Duke Univer­sity-trained anes­the­si­ol­o­gist, of­fers a cock­tail of in­tra­venous med­i­ca­tions that treat the nau­sea, in­flam­ma­tion and de­hy­dra­tion that can fol­low one too many Jack and Cokes.

The Hang­over Heaven bus works the Las Ve­gas Strip and meets its hurt­ing pa­trons in front of their ho­tels. It runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Satur­days and Sun­days. Burke also of­fers a pre­mium in-room ther­apy pack­age on Mon­days, Tues­days and Wed­nes­days.

The two on-bus anti-hang­over pack­ages range from $130 to $200, but Burke is of­fer­ing in­tro­duc­tory pric­ing of $90 and $150. In-room ther­apy costs $500 for the first per­son and $375 for each ad­di­tional per­son who cheered him on the pre­vi­ous night.

It may sound like a large of­fer­ing to get to Heaven, but con­sider that the al­ter­na­tive is still wor­ship­ing the porce­lain god.

Feel­ing a lit­tle worse for the wear af­ter last night’s, um, overindul­gence in Ve­gas? This bus trav­els with IVs that may help.
