Simple, Quick & Easy!
IV or intravenous is actually a fairly common method of administering medication, nutrients, or hydration into a patient’s body in medicine, and is used in a number of different cosmetic and healthcare settings. IV administration is a method of administration in which a substance or medication, is delivered directly into the patient’s veins, rather than them having to take it orally. IV therapy uses either high pressure syringes, or an intravenous drip infusion cocktail, often known more simply as an IV drip. generally, IV administration of a substance is relatively pain free, and simply requires the patient to have a butterfly needle inserted into their vein in the arm. And when performed electively, patients can get their favorite IV therapy drip, whilst watching a movie, reading a magazine or even taking a nap – either at home or in our office!
IV Therapy is Faster & More Efficient
The fact of the matter is that when a substance, hydration or nutrients are administered via IV drip therapy, it is the single fastest method of getting to the patient’s bloodstream, and therefore will provide patients with almost instant results and relief from issues such as a hangover, or general dehydration! IV therapy actually uses the body’s own circulatory system in order to disperse the medication, or to provide the body with replacement of lost fluids.
In fact, IV therapy is far more efficient as when medications or vitamins are ingested orally, only a small percentage of the actual substance makes it into the bloodstream. In most cases, only about 10-50% of the actual vitamins or substances make it into the patient’s bloodstream, where as using IV administration, the bioavailability is roughly 90-95%+.
