Intravenous Catheter & Fluids

Our surgery patients will have an area on their leg shaved and an intravenous catheter placed to allow the medical staff to have easy access to a vein. During the anesthetic procedure, intravenous fluids help to maintain blood pressure and body temperature. Administration of intravenous fluids during an anesthetic procedure will also prevent dehydration of the patient and allow for a quicker recovery period.
