“How can I learn more about my IV?”
“Why is it red around my IV site?”
“How do I know if my IV is inserted properly?”
“What can go wrong with my IV?”
Welcome to myIV.com – where we provide answers to any questions related to IVs – from the most basic to complex.
We are the resource to empower and inform patients and caregivers on IVs and IV therapy.
Intravenous (IV) therapy is a routine part of treatment for nearly 80% of U.S. hospital patients, yet 53% of surveyed Americans* say they’ve never even heard of IV risks like infiltration.
Our mission is to explain IVs – the common uses, common complications, and to help patients recognize symptoms of those common complications. We’re ready to fill the gap in patient education on IVs and IV therapy issues.
myIV.com is a free online resource sponsored by ivWatch, LLC for patient education purposes only. We are unable to provide medical advice to users of our website. If you have questions about your IV therapy treatment, please contact your clinician or primary care provider for their recommendation as it relates to your specific treatment plan and care.
Help us continue to raise #myIVawareness on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Instagram.
*In a 2017 survey of 1,000 U.S. residents between ages 18 – 65 on IV issues.
