Side effects from IV therapy are rare but can occur. Known risks and possible complications include occasional discomfort, pain, swelling, and burning at the site of injection; redness over the vein that is increasing in size; pain in the vein/arm that is not improving over 8-12 hours period after treatment; headaches.
The human body is approximately 60% water. Fluids are lost when we sweat, urinate or physically exert ourselves. Those who spend increased amount of time outdoor sweating, have high fevers, suffer from vomiting and diarrhea or drink alcohol will lose more fluids and suffer from dehydration and would benefit from IV therapy.
One of our licensed nurses will place a small, thin tube called a catheter into your vein. Our nurses will clean the skin with alcohol and then insert a small, thin plastic tube called a catheter directly into your vein. The needle will then be removed, and the catheter will stay in place. A tube will connect the catheter to the bag filled with fluids and the drip, you have selected, will be given. This process will take 30-45 minutes.
IV therapy or intravenous therapy is the giving of fluids directly into the vein. This route of treatment is used in many settings. It is quite often used in the hospital setting for giving of fluids and medications. IV therapy is the fastest way to deliver medications, blood products and more into the bloodstream to help with various health conditions, dehydration and blood transfusions.
