IV therapy refers to a medical therapy that delivers fluids and medication directly into the bloodstream. The term “IV” stands for intravenous, which means that IV therapy works by using an injection with a syringe or an IV drip that goes directly into the body’s veins. IV therapy is the fastest way to introduce medications, blood products, and more into the bloodstream, and can be administered for many reasons, ranging from medical emergencies to dehydration.

How does IV therapy work?
IV therapy is a straightforward procedure that you can expect to be simple and uniform, regardless of the type of therapy you are undergoing. In the beginning, you will be seated somewhere comfortable, and the medical professional administering the therapy will talk you through the entire procedure. IV therapy will always begin with a careful disinfection process before any needle is placed in a vein. Typically, the IV will be placed in the arm, but it can be placed elsewhere. Once the IV is inserted, a medical professional will be present throughout your entire therapy procedure to ensure that the rate of delivery is correct and that you are calm and comfortable. During IV therapy, you will be asked to remain still, so that you do not disturb or dislodge the catheter. Aside from certain small requests, you can read, watch television, or browse on your phone during the IV therapy process.
What fluids and vitamins are in an IV bag?
The fluids inside an IV bag depend on the type of IV therapy you are undergoing. Intravenous solutions can contain saline, vitamins, minerals and medication. Some common components of IV bags include:
- Lactated Ringer’s
Why should I get IV therapy?
IV Therapy delivers medication and fluids faster than oral administration and can be beneficial for a variety of reasons. It all depends on your unique circumstances, symptoms, and medical needs. Some main reasons people may want to try IV therapy include the fact that it is easy and convenient while promoting health and wellness. Generally, the main types of IV therapy include hangover relief, athletic performance recovery, immune system support, cold and flu relief, pregnancy symptom alleviation, and migraine and headache relief.
How long does IV therapy take?
Once you are connected to the IV, which is usually a quick and simple process, the duration of the therapy will depend on the type of IV therapy you are receiving. This process will typically require 45 minutes to an hour of your time. But, keep in mind that while some IV therapies can be done relatively quickly, others will take longer.
How quickly will I feel the effects of the IV drip?
Again, the answer depends on why you are undergoing IV therapy. In some cases, you may feel the effects almost immediately. In other cases, it may take more time. It all depends on the symptoms you are trying to address and the medical circumstances surrounding your situation. Effects of IV therapy can last from a couple of hours to lasting many days after your initial procedure.
