IV Therapy – What Is It?

IV therapy is a specialized medical procedure that gives medications, liquids and electrolytes directly to the veins of a human body. The most common intravenous route of delivery is often used for intravenous nutrition or for rehydration when a patient cannot eat or drink through the mouth. Other treatments include the administration of drugs in an attempt to block pain signals sent by the brain, or in an effort to bring a patient back from unconsciousness and prevent brain death. Some patients are given drugs intravenously with the hopes of stopping a heart attack before it takes place. Checkout IV Therapy for more info.


There are many IV therapies that can be administered for a variety of different illnesses and conditions. Common IV therapies administered through the morning include fluid infusion, medication administration, and the administration of drugs. These medications are generally intravenous (IV) – either IV hydrocoderm or IV vasoconstrictor. Hydrocoderm is a liquid that is injected under the tongue to create a temporary erection; the other type is called vasoconstriction, which is taken in a pill form that enters the bloodstream rather than under the tongue. These two types of IV therapies have been shown to help prevent or relieve some of the effects of dehydration and can often shorten the amount of time a patient spends in the hospital after a drug overdose.

Common IV therapies administered during the day include fluid resuscitation, or better known as R.U.R., which administers pressurized fluids to increase the rate of breathing and to prevent hypoxemia – low levels of oxygen. Another popular IV therapy used in the field of medicine is Vitamin K2 or also known as chelators, which is an essential nutrient that plays a key role in normal body function. Vitamin K2 is often administered with Vitamin C, calcium and other supplements to help prevent deficiency and toxicity. Other common IV therapies administered through the early evening include the administration of fluids that contain carbohydrates and electrolytes such as sodium, to help replace the fluids that will be lost during sleep. IV fluids are also administered to patients who are allergic to certain medications and are at risk of developing anaphylactic shock when they consume these medications.
