IV therapy is so much more than simply giving your patient’s fluids. It’s knowing what kind of IV access is most appropriate for your patient, how to care for it, what you can and can’t infuse through it….AND it’s knowing which fluids are best for your patient’s current condition.

In this podcast episode we cover the basics of IV therapy including the following:

  • Peripheral IV lines
  • Midline catheters
  • PICC lines
  • Central lines
  • Tunneled lines
  • Port-a-cath
  • How to care for these lines, how to use them and what meds/fluids can go into each one
