What Is Home Intravenous Therapy?
A safe and effective choice when oral medication isn’t an option.
Intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, means inside the vein. It is the administering of IV medications 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.
There most common types of intravenous therapies include:
- Pain management – Administering medications designed to relieve pain.
- Antibiotics Therapy – Used to treat severe bacterial infections.
- Hydration Therapy
- Total Parental Nutrition (TPN) – For patients who are malnourished or who cannot receive feedings or fluids by mouth.
Patients may receive a multitude of medications and fluids through IV therapy given at different times of the day or night to help them heal.
