What Is Home Intravenous Therapy?
Intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, means inside the vein. It is the infusion of liquids directly into a vein of a patient through a hypodermic needle. Essential fluids are stored in a flexible, plastic bag that is suspended from a pole for administration to patients who are bed bound. Below the bag is a drip chamber, which can be calibrated to make the fluids flow faster or slower into the patient. Additional liquid medications can be added to the IV as needed.
Who Administers IV Therapy?
A licensed and certified nurse, such as a registered nurse (RN), administers IV therapy to patients.
Our staff of skilled nurses is highly experienced in their field. They give the same care to a patient at home as they would in a hospital setting but are able to give a homebound person their undivided attention while they are at their bedside.
Which Patient Ailments Require Home IV Care?
Patients may suffer from a large variety of ailments in which IV therapy is ordered by a physician.
Conditions that often require home intravenous therapy include:
- Infections that are resistant to oral antibiotics
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Chronic diseases
- Immune Disorders
Patients may receive a multitude of medications through IV therapy given at different times of the day or night to help them heal.
Those that require long-term care and therapy benefit from the administration at home instead of the large expenditure of inpatient care at a hospital or facility. This allows the patient to return to their normal lifestyle and work much quicker.
