Are you considering IV infusions in Melbourne?
In this article, we will guide you through what to expect during an IV infusion and IM injection session at Fresh Treatments.
What is IV therapy?
IV therapy, also called intravenous therapy, delivers nutrients directly through your bloodstream through a vein.
Administering nutrients directly into your bloodstream means you bypass your digestive system facilitating optimal absorption.
Our IM injections, or intramuscular injections, are booster shots administered into a muscle.
Fresh Treatment’s IV infusion process
Upon arrival at Fresh Treatments for an IV infusion, you’ll have a free consultation with a doctor. The doctor will take into account your medical history and current health status providing a personalised recommendation for your treatment. This way, the IV Infusions & IM Injections you receive will be tailored precisely to meet your individual requirements.
IV drip infusions administered by a skilled nurse
Next, our highly skilled nurses administer your IV drip.
You’ll sit comfortably with a cushion under your arm. Our nurse will gently insert a cannula into your vein. The entire process usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on your chosen package.
Throughout the session, the nurse will be by your side, ready to ensure your comfort while prioritising your safety and satisfaction. And our friendly team will address any questions or concerns you may have.
Tips to prepare for your IV services
To optimise your IV therapy experience, we recommend following these preparations. On the day of your appointment, it is important to drink 1-2 litres of water and have a small meal or snack before the infusion. Staying hydrated helps facilitate the cannula insertion process, as dehydrated veins can make it more challenging. Additionally, having a meal or snack can minimise the risk of nausea or light-headedness associated with fluctuating blood sugar levels.
“Was feeling a little under the weather at a particularly inconvenient time. I decided last minute to book the ultimate IV package with FRESH treatments. 5 minutes later, I walked in the door, and ten minutes after that, I was sitting comfortably, watching Netflix and receiving my IV treatment. The staff were super friendly, and the whole process was comfortable and easy. An hour or so later, and I feel incredible!” Eddie Duffield, Google Review
