Why Is IV Drip Therapy Done?
IV drip therapy is an expected part of a routine in hospitalization from surgery or acute illness. It’s vital for patients with chronic diseases or special medical needs. Doctors and nurses use the technique to administer fluids, nutrients, medication, and anesthesia directly into a patient’s vein as quickly and efficiently as needed.
Some common reasons for receiving IV drip therapy include the following:
Our bodies are made of about 60% of water essential for crucial bodily functions. Severe dehydration may occur when you are sick (vomiting and diarrhea), have serious injury or burns, spend too much time in the heat or exercising, or have had surgery and are unable to eat or drink. IV drip therapy is used to manage hydration in all these conditions, and you can also receive electrolytes and vitamins when needed.
Eliminate Toxins and Unwanted Free Radicals
IV drip therapy can help cleanse and eliminate free radicles and toxins from the body that can harm cells, damage DNA, and promote aging.
IV drip hydration helps alleviate annoying hangover symptoms such as dehydration, headaches, excessive thirst, nausea, stomach pain, fatigue, brain fog, and vomiting. IV drip fluids rehydrate lost water caused by excessive drinking and contain electrolytes, which help fight fatigue, thirst, and dizziness. You may find relief after an hour of IV therapy.
When an infection is resistant to oral antibiotics or the patient cannot take antibiotics orally, IV antibiotics are used because they work more quickly than oral alternatives.
Patients suffering from certain chronic conditions and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, gout, multiple sclerosis, and psoriasis can be treated using IV therapy to administer biological medications, intravenous immunoglobulin, and other medications to manage these conditions.
IV nutrition drips supply the body with the necessary vitamins and minerals to replenish deficiencies or aid healing. The IV drip delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream to provide quick delivery to the cells that need it.
