Wound Care Management
- Pressure ulcers are a sign of trauma related to pressure over bony areas. As we age, we lose fat, and become less mobile making us prone to pressure ulcer formation.
- We use high quality wound products with debridement instruments (curette, scalpel, nippers) to remove dead tissue to expose the underlying health tissue. As we debride wounds on a weekly maintenance schedule, you see capillary bleeding that brings red blood cells and new tissue components to the area to build cell layers.
- Your primary care doctor will send us the face sheet and order, so we can start the healing process, while educating your family on proper wound care. Sometimes the wound looks worse before it gets better.

IV Vitamin Therapy
The human body is over 70% water. With that said, a healthy person with no heart or kidney issues should consume half their body weight in ounces. For example, if you weight 150 lbs, you should drink 75 ounces of water daily (for those without kidney and heart failure). Consult your primary provider on water intake.
IV nutrient administration can double to triple the serum levels to provide your body with the necessary nutrients (Gaby, 2002). IV therapy may also correct intracellular nutrient deficiencies.

How Does IV Nutrient Therapy Work?
Most people consume their vitamins and micronutrients through their food; some people may also take additional multivitamin supplements. When vitamins and micronutrients are ingested orally, they go down to the stomach and intestines, where they are broken down by gastrointestinal enzymes and then absorbed into the bloodstream. Some common components include:
- Vitamin C – Studies have been performed that indicate several of the benefits of intravenous vitamin C. · Vitamin B complex – Several vitamins make up the B complex group of vitamins. These vitamins play essential functions in the processes that place in the human body.
- Vitamin B12 – This is also known as cyanocobalamin. It serves many purposes in the human body; however, its primary function is in the production of red blood cells. · Folic acid – This is also known as folate. Similar to cyanocobalamin, folic acid helps in the development of red blood cells.
- Calcium – Calcium is necessary for the development of strong and healthy bones. People who are lacking in calcium in their body may end up with a condition known as osteoporosis.
- Glutathione – This is an antioxidant that facilitates many key processes in the body.
Everyone’s metabolism and needs will vary. Some people may have a genetically determined impairment in the ability to maintain normal intracellular nutrient concentrations. Some may have an “inborn error” of metabolism that may require a higher-than-normal concentration of vitamins and/or minerals. The nephrons of the kidneys may alter the concentrations of electrolytes via glomerular filtration and secretion. We start your infusion slow and steady. Some clients report more energy after the first vitamin infusion. Keep in mind it may take a couple of infusions before your body produces results.
IV stands for intravenous, meaning that the vitamins and micronutrients are administered into the body through the veins. It provides supplemental vitamins and micronutrients into your body to improve the body’s state of health and overall well-being.
Some athletes receive intravenous vitamins after their games to help improve speed up their recovery. Another common reason people seek out IV vitamin therapy is in managing certain medical conditions.
IV vitamin therapy is not a new concept; it has been in existence since the early eighties. One of the earliest types of IV Vitamin therapy developed was by the late Dr. Myers; he came up with the Myers’ Cocktail comprising magnesium, calcium, vitamin C, and other B-complex vitamins.
There are many types of intravenous micronutrients available, a patient should consult with their healthcare provider first. After performing an assessment, a healthcare provider can recommend what combination of vitamins and a patient needs to achieve their health goals. If you’re wondering if IV therapy is right for you, please consult your doctor.
There are no definite answers regarding who should take vitamin C or benefit from intravenous vitamin infusion therapy. A person may start with an IV vitamin therapy if their healthcare provider recommends it. Other considerations that may warrant the need for IV vitamin such as:
- Individuals suffering or recovering from illnesses; IV vitamins may help boost the immune system and speed up recovery.
- Individuals who feel run down and have chronic low energy.
- Individuals with mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
- Athletes before and after major sporting activities.
IV Nutrient Therapy is not recommended in persons with heart, kidney, and liver failure.
Intravenous vitamin infusions are generally safe, with minimal side effects. When they do occur, side effects may be due to poor antiseptic conditions during the administration of the infusion.
Some side effects may occur because of hypersensitivity reactions to one or more of the ingredients in an infusion. First time should have it titrated slowly and should be monitored closely for any side effects. If any side effects are detected, the infusion will be stopped.
