The Administration of IV Therapy
In order for the life saving fluids to reach the circulatory system of the patient, administration of substances is done intravenously.
It is very important to ensure that the fluid is sterilized to avoid causing loss of energy during recovery process. The lifesaving to be administered to the patient through the intravenous system mostly come in a package through the can be merged with sterile water for them to create solution specific. The tubing and also the warm UV fluid bag are used in the administration of these substances in their variety if forms so that they will reach the circulatory system of the patient quickly and save life. When the overall volume of the individual significantly reduces, then the life saving fluids are administered intravenously.
There are so many reasons that are known to result in reduced volume of the individual. The factors leading to reduced volume are diarrhoea, blood loss, vomiting, dehydration, trauma scenarios, electrolytes levels imbalances as well as surgery procedures.
Intravenous therapy can be administered in many situations such as prevention of dehydration, medication supply, blood transfusion completion as well as any other required purpose.
A fluid warming system can also be used during the substance administration to warm them as this is important to ensure that internal body temperature of the patient does not fall to extreme levels. In case large amounts of fluids are administered within a short period of time, this can result in dangerous internal body temperature dropping. Portable intravenous therapies have made it easier for warming the substance being administered.
IV body fluid that is warm, a tubing, a device for accessing aa well as a chamber for dripping are the means used to ensure that substances are directly supplied in the veins by the use of intravenous therapy.
In order to ensure that air does not enter into the bloodstream as well as to manage the amount of fluid being administered in the patient body, a chamber for dripping will be very important. There exists many substances that can be administered in the patient body intravenous. Blood substitutes, buffer solutions, blood products, medications as well as the saline solution are the some of the substances that can be given through the intravenous therapy.
To enter into the patient bloodstream, the substances are channeled to enter the access device which includes peripheral cannula, needles or the central lines for IV lines. The administration of substance intravenously can be stopped by the use of a long sterile tube and then attach a clamp to the IV setup. Rapid infusers are used where the patient needs large amount of the substances.
