What is intravenous (IV) Therapy?

The intravenous therapy is a process to admit a fluid into your vein directly. The IV therapy is one of the most common methods used by the healthcare professionals to deliver several medicines, vitamins and other fluids that are needed by the body.

Why is intravenous (IV) Therapy used?

The Intravenous IV therapy is a process that enables the body to get nutrients or vitamins at a faster rate as compared to others.

The IV therapy is done by the professionals only, it is done through the IV line of your body. Administering the fluid through IV line and bypasses the gastrointestinal tract so that body can absorb the nutrients even more quickly.

Who can perfect an Intravascular (IV) Therapy?

Only healthcare professionals can perform the IV Therapy, just like the ones we are offering at our Dry Eye & Wellness Center. During the process of the IV therapy, the professional will be inserting the cannula into a vein of a person, usually in the dorsum of the hand or the median cubital vein located in the crook of your arm. A tube is then attached with a bag containing the IV fluids, the fluid drips through the tube directly into the vein.

Uses of Intravenous (IV) Therapy:

  • Serious dehydration by managing fluids.
  • Pain by managing the pain relief.
  • Unable to intake the food, by managing the nutrients.
  • Loss of blood by managing the blood transfusion.
  • In health conditions by managing the medications.
IV Vitamin Therapy:

The Intravenous vitamin Therapy can be used to transport large amounts of minerals and vitamins into the bloodstream directly without going through the gastrointestinal tract. It is called the Myers’ cocktail and is a mixture of Vitamin B, Vitamin C, magnesium and calcium.

Speed- it causes quick recovery of a patient as the fluids or medications are going directly into the blood.

Efficiency- bypassing the GIT and getting directly into the blood is the reason how IV Therapy can be used as targeting the desired organs quickly.

There are various factors that affect the ability of our body to absorb nutrient when it comes to stomach, these factors can include your metabolism, activity, energy levels, age, genetics, interaction with other consuming products and the natural levels of minerals or vitamins present in your body. As IV Therapy transfers the minerals and vitamins directly into your bloodstream, it leads to the greater levels of uptake of them by your cells.

Some of the diseases showing positive results with IV Vitamin Therapy:

Migraines, muscle spasm, allergies, fibromyalgia, pain, sinus, chronic fatigue syndromes, infections of respiratory tract, even angina and hyperthyroidism as well.

But what if you are some way naturally allergic to the intravenous therapy or a professional can not locate your vein? Then Intramuscular injections (IM Shots) are here for you.

What are Intramuscular injections (IM shots)?
Just similar to the IV therapy, an intramuscular injection is given to a person to transport a medicine directly deep into the muscles, which makes it easier to get absorbed into the bloodstream quickly.
Why are IM shorts used?

These are sometimes used as an exchange of an oral delivery. Because as mentioned earlier, it takes quite some time for a medicine to be absorbed through GIT and it can destroy some drugs as well when you swallow them.

The IM Shots are absorbed at a faster rate than any other subcutaneous injection, as the muscles are having a greater blood supply within them they can handle more volume of a medication than the your subcutaneous tissues.

Uses of the Intramuscular Injections (IM Shots):

A professional may use the IM shots in cases when

  • Any appropriate vein can not be located.
  • Any appropriate vein can not be located.
  • The digestive system makes the pills ineffectual.
