In modern day medical practice, Infusion sets are regularly used to provide fluid therapy, to administer medicines, This practice is called infusion therapy. Most sets work by using gravity, often called gravity infusion.
A collection of sterile devices designed to conduct fluids from an intravenous (IV) fluid container to a patient’s venous system; used for gravitational intravenous administration.
Some medications must be given by an intravenous (IV) injection or infusion. This means they’re sent directly into your vein using a needle or tube. In fact, the term “intravenous” means “into the vein.” With IV administration, a thin plastic tube called an IV catheter is inserted into your vein.
Intravenous (IV) fluid drips deliver saline solution through a small catheter and tubing directly into the bloodstream. This solution usually includes medications and vitamin supplements that are tailored to the individual patient.
During therapy, the nurse inserts an IV line which is attached to a bag of saline solution. The bag is then hung above the patient’s head. IV therapy bags are designed to let gravity, as opposed to a syringe or other forced technique, carry fluid into the veins over time. The duration of a single treatment varies from person to person, but tends to last around an hour.
IV drips are also known as infusion therapy or IV therapy. Unlike oral or topical medications, IV drips are 100% absorbed by the body. This means that IV drips are the fastest way to deliver supplements and simultaneously rehydrate the body
