IV Therapy Q & A
What is IV therapy?
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a way of getting fluids, nutrients, or medications directly into your bloodstream where they can make a significant, immediate difference. By digesting those same fluids, nutrients, or medications, you can experience benefits but won’t get as drastic of an effect because some of them get lost in your digestive tract.
IV therapy offers a 100% absorption rate. During IV therapy at Care Fast Urgent Care, your provider lets you know what goes into your IV drip and how it will benefit you. You may recline comfortably as a solution with a sterile saline base flows into your bloodstream. Typically, IV therapy lasts for 45 minutes to an hour.
Depending on your goals with IV therapy and the type you get, you may be able to get IV therapy as a regular part of your routine. Otherwise, you can get it only when you need it.
What does IV therapy include?
There are a few different types of IV therapy. Depending on what you need it for, your IV therapy may include:
IV therapy with fluids is meant to hydrate you. Certain illnesses or circumstances, like intense exercise, travel, or heavy drinking, can dehydrate you and lower your energy.
Various nutrients are available in IV therapy to serve a number of purposes. Nutrients such as B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and zinc can all work to boost your nutrition and address certain symptoms of imbalance.
Sometimes, intravenous medications work best to treat an illness. IV therapy may involve antibiotics for bacterial infections, certain pain medications, or other drugs.
What are the benefits of IV therapy?
IV therapy has a diverse range of potential benefits that you can experience according to your needs. If you’re getting IV therapy with nutrients, the team at Care Fast Urgent Care decides which nutrients or combinations of nutrients will best serve your needs at the time of your visit.
Possible benefits include:
- Faster metabolism
- More energy
- Quicker athletic recovery
- Better immunity
- Cold and flu symptom relief
- Headache relief
- Pregnancy symptom relief
The duration of positive effects from IV therapy depends on your reasons for getting it and what was included in your drip.
