Frequently Asked Questions
How long does an IV drip take?
After a thorough physical assessment and assessment of medical history to determine if IV therapy is appropriate for you it will take approximately 30-90 minutes for most non specialty infusions.
How often can I have an IV drip?
You will work closely with the nurse practitioner to develop an appropriate treatment regimen. Most drips can be administered weekly.
What is it like to get an IV drip?
After a thorough assessment a licensed medical professional will insert a small sterile medical grade IV catheter into your vein. The IV catheter is then attached to sterile tubing which is then connected to the bag of fluids, vitamins, minerals, aminos, and medications that were predetermined during your initial assessment. These will then be delivered directly into your blood stream through the sterile IV catheter that was inserted into your vein.
