IV infusions, also known as intravenous infusions, are a method of delivering fluids, medications, or nutrients directly into a patient’s bloodstream through a vein. This method of delivery allows for more rapid absorption and can provide immediate relief for certain conditions.
IV infusions are administered using a needle and a bag or bottle of fluid, which may contain medications, electrolytes, vitamins, or other nutrients. The needle is inserted into a vein, usually in the arm or hand, and the fluid is slowly dripped into the bloodstream.
IV infusions can be used to:
- Rehydrate the Body
- Deliver Medications or Nutrients directly into the Bloodstream
- Correct Electrolyte Imbalances
- Treat Infections
- Provide Pain Relief
- Manage Chemotherapy Side Effects
- Address Nutritional Deficiencies
