What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous therapy (or IV care) is used to help maintain the right fluid balance, to monitor drug effectiveness, to treat infection, and to relieve pain. IV therapy consists of using liquids that are introduced directly into a vein. The treatment can be intermittent or continuous and is the fastest method for delivering pharmaceuticals to a patient. Some of the therapies that can be administered via IV are:
- Nutritional therapy
- Parenteral nutrition management (TPN/PPN)
- Pain management
- Hydration management
- Anti-viral therapy
- Anti-fungal therapy
