IV Solutions

  1. IV Bags: IV solutions are commonly packaged in flexible plastic bags designed for easy hanging and administration. These bags come in various sizes and are typically made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or non-PVC materials to ensure compatibility with different medications and reduce the risk of leaching.
  2. Infusion Pumps: Infusion pumps are used to control the rate and volume of IV solution delivery. These devices ensure precise administration and allow for programmable infusion rates, enabling healthcare professionals to customize treatment according to patient needs.
  3. IV Catheters: IV catheters are used to access veins for the delivery of IV solutions. They come in different sizes and designs, such as peripheral catheters for short-term use and central venous catheters for long-term or high-volume infusions. These devices are essential for safe and efficient IV therapy.
  4. Administration Sets: IV administration sets, also known as IV tubing or infusion sets, connect the IV bag to the patient’s IV catheter. They include various components such as drip chambers, tubing, flow regulators, and injection ports, ensuring a controlled flow of IV solution and facilitating the addition of medications or secondary infusions.
  5. Needleless Connectors: Needleless connectors are devices that provide access to the IV catheter while minimizing the risk of contamination and needlestick injuries. These connectors allow for the administration of medications, flushing of the catheter, and sampling of blood without the need for needle insertion.
  6. IV Solution Labels: Clear and accurate labeling is crucial for identifying the type of IV solution, its concentration, and any additives or medications included. Labels also provide important information about the expiration date, lot number, and manufacturer details to ensure proper usage and traceability
