Turmeric, for instance, we have featured a number of times for this “smart kill” property of targeting just the heart of cancerous tumors. More recently, ginger has been found in pre-clinical research to contain a compound up to 10,000 times more effective than the chemotherapy drug Taxol at killing breast cancer stem cells. Even common food like blueberry have special cancer killing properties, as discussed in a previous article: Research: Radiotherapy Causes Cancer, Blueberry Kills It.

Setting up an Intravenous Infusion - TeachMeSurgery. Intravenous (IV) therapy is the infusion of fluid directly into the vein of a patient, usually via a cannula.

Setting up an Intravenous Infusion - TeachMeSurgery

There are various indications for the administration of fluid, such as replacement of electrolytes, restoration of blood volume or maintenance in the surgery-staved patient. IV therapy can also be used in the administration of drugs (such as in chemotherapy) – it has a fast action as the medicine is delivered straight into the vein. In this article, we shall look at the principles behind setting up an intravenous fluid infusion. Lecture 6: Introduction to IVs. We have already learned that IV stands for intravenous, or an injection that is given directly into the vein.

Lecture 6: Introduction to IVs

We have a limit of 3 mL of fluid for adults when giving them subcutaneous or intramuscular injections because more than that will cause problems in the tissue surrounding the injection site, but because an IV injection goes directly into a patient's vein, the only limit on the amount of fluid that can be administered via an IV is the limit on the amount a fluid a person's body can consume without receiving more liquid than the body can absorb or excrete (which can lead to medical problems such as heart failure, high blood pressure, and excessive fluid in the lungs). The safe range of daily fluid intake will vary based on the patient's condition, size and age, as several diseases such a heart failure, kidney failure, and diabetes, for example, can require that a patient limit their daily fluid intake.
