Build on your knowledge in the healthcare field with our Intravenous Therapy course
Running an intravenous (IV) line has become close to a standard practice for hospitalized patients. Because it introduces a needle directly into the circulatory system, this method of administration is one of the quickest, most convenient ways to do things like replace fluids, correct electrolyte imbalances, transfuse blood, and deliver medication through either injection or infusion. But it can be a tricky and delicate process to get IV administration right, and healthcare professionals like registered nurses and licensed practical nurses often find that they benefit from a focused seminar that covers the ins and outs of IV therapy.
Students can get training that covers:
- Placing and managing IV lines and infusion kits
- Calculating and administering medication and fluids
- Managing complications and troubleshooting
