what is iv infusion?

IV infusion is a medical procedure through which fluids, like – electrolyte solutions, medicinal drugs, etc are directly administered in the veins via a glucose or other medical solution (IV solution), by means of an infusion set consisting of the fluid glass or plastic vacuum bag/bottle, plastic tube connecting the medicinal bag or bottle to a catheter or needle in the patient’s vein.

types of iv infusion

There are three types of IV infusion therapy – IV Push, IV piggyback and Continuous Infusion

  1. IV push or Bolus – An IV “push” or “bolus” is a fast infusion of medication. A syringe is inserted into your catheter to rapidly send a one-time dosage of medication into your blood.
  2. Secondary IV or IV Piggyback – An IV piggy back also known as secondary infusion is the administration of medicine together with the IV solution, through the existing IV insertion.
  3. Continuous infusion – It is primarily used to rectify fluid and electrolyte imbalances into the patient body. A controlled method of intravenous administration of drugs, fluids, or nutrients are given without interruption, instead of by bolus/ IV Push.
