Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is I.V. Therapy?
IV or Intravenous Therapy refers to a therapy that delivers fluid into veins in the body. IV therapy works by using an injection with a syringe or via infusion, often referred to as a drip.
IV therapy is the fastest way to deliver medications, blood products and more into the bloodstream to help with various health conditions, dehydration and blood transfusions.
How does an IV work?
Intravenous (IV) fluid drips deliver a combination of saline solution, vitamins, and electrolytes through a small catheter and tubing directly into the bloodstream.
IV therapy bags are designed to let gravity, as opposed to a syringe or other forced technique, carry fluid into the veins over time.
Why do they give you an IV in the hospital?
IVs are one of the most common things in health care. They are used to prevent dehydration, maintain blood pressure, or give patients medicines or nutrients if they can't eat.
