6 Questions to Ask About IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy is a medical treatment used in hospitals throughout the United States. In fact, 4 out of 5 hospital patients wind up receiving an IV, making it one of the more common procedures administered in clinical settings. Essentially, IV therapy is the delivery of fluids, blood, or medication directly into a patient’s system via the veins.

The main benefit of this treatment is its capability to deliver drugs and/or fluids into a patient’s bloodstream quickly and effectively. Your body can absorb 100% of the vitamins taken this way as opposed to approximately 20% of the amount taken orally because of the digestive tract. Nevertheless, sticking needles into people’s veins still generates lots of questions. For this reason, we have included some of the most common questions people ask about IV therapy below.

It doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with being deeply religious or living your life according to a strict set of rules and cultural norms. Nevertheless, it may help to explore spiritual wellness and why it is important in people’s lives.
