Intravenous Care

Intravenous care is a therapy where drugs and medicines are administered to the patient in the form of fluids directly in the veins. The infusions are commonly known as drips. It is the fastest way to administer drugs and replenish vital salts and minerals in the body. Intravenous therapy is also used for blood transfusion. Fluid and electrolyte disorders are common in patients which can also be called dehydration. There are many causes of dehydration, such as lack of fluid intake, excessive sweating, diarrhea, etc.

Types of intravenous access –

  • Peripheral lines – are used on peripheral veins such as on hands, legs, etc. This is the most common type of IV administration
  • Central lines – IV lines have their catheters and are advanced to a larger vein such as inferior vena cava, superior vena cava, and sometimes the right atrium of the heart. It is used when there is a requirement for a prolonged infusion, and multiple drugs can be delivered.
