Intravenous (IV) Fluids

What is About IV Fluids?

Intravenous fluid management is the monitoring of the volume of fluid you get from or into your bloodstream. The fluid is delivered from a bag attached to an intravenous line. This is a thin tube, also called an IV, inserted into one of your veins. We provide services in Frisco, Mckinney, Texas.

When do we need Intravenous (IV) Fluids therapy?

The human body is made up of around 60 percent of water, and two-thirds of it is contained intracellularly. The remainder is contained in the blood vessels and between the cells. Water makes up 73% of the heart and brain; 83% of the lungs; 79% of the kidneys & muscles; and 64% of the skin. 

As the fluid is lost for some cause like over sweating, diarrhea which results in electrolytes are imbalanced, body systems are exhausted, and cognitive function in the brain becomes affected. Blood is concentrated, allowing the kidneys to hold water. As a consequence, the amount of urine is reduced. Intravenous fluid replacement eliminates the imbalance and restores natural body functions. The IV fluid solution to be given is related to the cause of the loss of fluid.
