intravenous fluid iv

Intravenous Fluid (iv)

IV is short for intravenous therapy, sometimes called an iv infusion.  People have used iv’s for everything from hang overs to general health!

The fluid is injected directly into the body through a vein.  It’s a way of intrudincg fluid replacement directly into the circulation.  It’s used as a way of regulating electrolyte balance, and in extreme cases it has been used to deliver medication into the blood stream or transfusion.

People have used a variety of things in iv drips around the world from Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) to Sodium Chloride.  Speak to your therapist about what might be best for you.
