IV Drip Therapy

What is IV Drip Therapy?
When medication or fluids are supplied using a needle or catheter, usually intravenously (IV) it is known as infusion therapy or IV drip therapy.
It’s a method of administering a medication that can’t be taken orally or needs to be administered at a specific rate.
Intravenous (IV) rehydration may be prescribed to treat moderate to severe cases of dehydration. It’s more commonly used to treat children than adults. Children are more likely than adults to become dangerously dehydrated when they’re ill. Exercising vigorously without drinking enough fluids can also lead to dehydration.

 

During IV rehydration, fluids will be injected in your patients body through an IV line. Different fluids may be used, depending on the situation.

 

IV rehydration involves a few small risks. They’re generally outweighed by the benefits, especially since severe dehydration can be life-threatening if left untreated.

Why have IV Drip Therapy at Pure Medical?

When you become dehydrated you lose fluids from your body. These fluids contain water and dissolved salts, called electrolytes. To treat mild cases of dehydration, we would encourage you to drink water and fluids that contain electrolytes, such as sports drinks or over-the-counter rehydration solutions. To treat moderate to severe cases of dehydration, oral rehydration may not be enough. Your doctor or emergency medical staff may recommend IV rehydration.

 

Patients often become dehydrated from being sick. For example, vomiting, having diarrhea, and developing a fever can raise your risk of becoming dehydrated.

 

You can also become dehydrated after exercising vigorously without drinking enough fluids.

How Does IV Drip Therapy Work?

To administer rehydration IV Drip Therapy, our doctor or nurse will insert an IV line into a vein in the arm. This IV line will consist of a tube with a needle on one end. The other end of the line will be connected to a bag of fluids, which will be hung above the patients head.
Your doctor will determine what type of fluid solution the patient needs. It will depend on their age, existing medical conditions, and the severity of their dehydration. Our doctor or nurse can regulate the amount of fluid entering the body using an automated pump or manually adjustable valve attached to their IV line. They will check the IV line from time to time to ensure you are receiving the right amount of fluids. They will also make sure the thin plastic tube in your arm is secure and not leaking. The length of your treatment time, and the number of fluids that you need, will depend on the severity of their dehydration.
The same procedure is used for adults.

What to expect when having IV Drip Therapy?

A Drip is an Intravenous Drip which is administered by putting a cannula into a vein in your arm. You will then be attached to the Drip for around 40 minutes while the fluid and nutrients enter your bloodstream. A Booster Shot is an injection of a single nutrient into the muscle in the arm.

 

Treatments are usually repeated over days or weeks. You should complete the whole course for the most benefit.

 

If you are sick or have the following symptoms, your treatment session may be postponed.
-Severe cold or flu

-Sickness (nausea).

What are the possible
side effects of IV Drip Therapy?

Though vitamin IV drip therapy treatments carry some disadvantages, most of the drawbacks can be minimized with supervision by a qualified healthcare professional who follows judicious safety protocol.
As with any medication, IV therapy can cause side effects for some people. That’s why it’s so important to receive treatment from qualified staff who can monitor your body’s reactions.

 

Some people have encountered side effects from vitamin IV therapy, such as:
Infection at the injection site
Rashes
Vein inflammation and bruising
Blood clots
Air embolism

 

Various side effects from the prescribed vitamins themselves can also happen. To avoid these side effects, it’s important to tell your doctor about any medications or supplements you take and reactions you’ve had in the past. Then, your team must monitor you for reactions.
Complications like infection and air embolisms are more common with unqualified providers or careless protocols. Fewer risks occur in the hands of a reputable provider, so make sure you know what to look for.
