What is IV therapy?
Intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, is a method of administering fluids and medication through the patient’s vein. It is commonly used to provide nutrients for patients who are unable to eat or drink through the mouth. It can also be used for rehydration and has been known to typically work faster than oral medication because the medication goes directly to the bloodstream and organs for immediate absorption.

Benefits of IV therapy
IV therapy is not a new trend in treatment. It has been around as early as the 1400s. It is a preventative measure for those who suffer from acute stress, depression, or those who are unable to consume food due to mental instability.
Vitamins and nutrients can be passed through the IV to energize the body and boost the immune system.
There are many benefits of IV therapy, and these benefits are not only peculiar to patients and sick people. Healthy people can also enjoy the benefit of IV therapy as it is a great way to pass vitamins and antioxidants to the body.
Some of the benefits of IV therapy are:
- Treatment of nutrient deficiencies

IV therapy typically takes between 15-90 minutes. But depending on your weight, age, and IV type, you can expect it to take lesser or more time.
Can IV Therapy Help Surgery Patients?
Surgery patients with health conditions like diabetes, obesity, or nutrient deficiency are at risk of surgical complications. IV therapy helps to avoid these complications by hydrating the body’s organs and tissues, reducing inflammation, and providing electrolytes.
These vitamins and antioxidants are administered through IV therapy before and after the surgery. This helps surgery patients recover quickly, heal faster, have fewer bruises, and boosts their immune systems.

IV Therapy FAQs
The cost of IV therapy is determined by the type of vitamin or IV treatment you are receiving. It is advisable to consult a physician for a more specific cost. However, a treatment package can vary from $100-$500, while add-ons like B-complex, magnesium, or vitamin-c can cost about $35 -$50.
The average IV therapy lasts up to an hour or two in the body. IV vitamin C may stay up to 4 hours.
However, the effects may last for many days after treatment as a result of the patient's hydration level and metabolic rate. If you are well hydrated, you may pass nutrients out more quickly by urinating.
IV therapy should be given at least once or twice a week or once every two weeks. If you take IV therapy for a specific condition, you can consult with our doctor about the frequency of your sessions.
IV fluids stay in the body for up to 4 hours or more. However, the nutrients, minerals, and vitamins in our IV drip can stay in your body system for many months. This also depends on your condition, ailment, and the type of therapy received.
IV therapy can be administered by a certified Registered Nurse, Doctor, Physician, surgeon, or Highly skilled technician. At PSI, we have a team of board-certified surgeons, surgical techs, and aestheticians who are qualified to administer IV therapy.
When the tube is inserted, the pinch of the injection or needle might hurt a bit. But once the tube has been inserted correctly, IV therapy shouldn't hurt, sting, or burn. If it does, it wasn't inserted correctly. You can alert the physician to check the tube, remove it, and re-insert it.
Also, after the procedure is done, it is normal to see swelling and bruises in the area of insertion. You can press the area down with cotton wool or use a cold compress or ice pack for 10-20 min to reduce swelling.
