Types of Solutions

Other types
- crystalloids
Solutions that contain electroytes May be used for fluid volume replacement D5IMB, D5NM, D5NR

Page 18

Other types
- colloids
Also called plasma expanders Pull fluid from the interstitial compartment into the vascular compartment used to increase the vascular volume rapidly albumin

Problems encountered in IVT

Page 25


Is the accidental administration of IV infused medicinal drugs to the surrounding tissue, either by leakage or direct infusion

Page 26


Blanching of the skin, with pain at the site, cool to touch, decreased infusion rate

Page 27

Hard and cordlike vein, with tenderness at the site. Catheters placed in the veins that overlay joints are more likely to cause thrombophlebitis
Page 28

A blood clot or other solid mass, or an air bubble delivered into the circulation via the IV site or cannula

Page 29

Infection on Site
Any break in the skin carries a risk of infection. Moisture introduced to unprotected IV sites through washing or bathing substantially increases the infection risks.

May occur at any time during an episode of IV therapy
