What Does IV Stand For?



IV is an acronym standing for Intravenous Therapy. The word intra means inside or within, while venous implies the procedure uses your veins. So, in a nutshell, this treatment administers fluids into your body through your blood vessels.


How Do IV Drips Work?


IV drips work by delivering hydration, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, botanicals, and concentrated amounts of vitamins directly into your bloodstream. Unlike conventional feeding, where all these compounds and minerals have to go through the digestive system, IV therapy shortens the process by infusing them directly into your bloodstream with a 100% absorption rate.


You might be wondering, what does drip mean? An IV fluid drip consists of a tiny tube called a catheter plus a saline-based electrolyte solution. This solution is customized to contain your selected nutrients and vitamins.


The IV drip delivers IV fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream, thus bypassing your digestive system. As a result, nutrition is available instantly to resolve your body's overall health and wellness needs.

  • Typically, the ingredients in the drip IV include Saline, vitamins, and electrolytes.

  • Once our specialist accesses your vein, we eject the needle.

  • The catheter remains then remains inside your vein to deliver your IV infusion.

The IV drip procedure takes around 30 to 45 minutes. The time includes a quick health assessment and completing a few forms before the actual infusion.
