IV INFUSION THERAPY
What is IV infusion therapy?
IV infusion therapy is done by a catheter placement into the bloodstream for the administration of any medicine or important solutions that can’t be managed orally. The prime goal of IV infusion therapy is rapid absorption in the body and so any fluid that is transmitted through the IV route has very instant absorption directly into the bloodstream.
IV infusion therapies are considered as the most important part of any treatment. Most fluid resuscitations are done through IV roots and treatment results are achieved at quite a faster rate as compared to the oral route.
IV Infusion Therapy is used to treat a long list of chronic conditions including, but not limited to:
IV Infusion Therapy is ideal for patients who’ve been unresponsive to oral medications or for patients with chronic conditions who find it difficult, uncomfortable, or impossible to take medication orally. The infusion process also provides faster hydration for individuals who’ve recently undergone surgery and have lost significant fluids.

We provide IV infusion therapies to patients when they fall under the following conditions:

How is the procedure done?
Here is what you can expect in your IV therapy session at PNHJ.
An IV cannula is directly inserted by identifying the connected vein into the hand of the patient. the other end of the cannula is attached to the fluid which is required for resuscitation. Some of the common solutions used are dextrose, normal saline, antibiotics, and ringers lactate.
