What is IV Therapy?
IV therapy is a type of treatment that involves the use of intravenous infusions. It is used to treat a wide variety of conditions and symptoms such as dehydration, low blood pressure, electrolyte imbalances, insufficient blood flow in the body, shock, and many others.
IV therapy can be administered in a hospital or doctor’s office or at home by an individual with the necessary medical training. The infusions are given through an intravenous line (also called a catheter), which is inserted into a vein usually in the arm. The infusion fluid can be delivered continuously over several hours or it can be given intermittently as needed.
IV therapy is often used to deliver fluids and medication when someone cannot drink enough fluids by mouth. It can also be used to deliver nutrients and other medications, such as antibiotics, painkillers, or sedatives.
There are two types of IV therapy: peripheral IV therapy and central IV therapy. The former is administered to patients in the arm or leg while the latter is administered to patients in the neck or chest.
The most common fluids that are given through an IV include saline (salt water), dextrose (sugar water) and lactated Ringer's solution. Other medications such as antibiotics can also be given through an IV line.
