Modern world is the world of challenges, risks, development, and approaches.When the concern is about the treatment of severe and life threatening diseases, the first priority is to go towards the route of treatment which should be fast enough to produce fast onset of action. Intravenous (IV) treatment and route of administration is considered as the fastest route to be used when the condition is life threatening and it is essential to deliver the fluid and medicines directly into the bloodstream throughout the body. IV treatment is the way of treatment that uses infusions and drips to be injected in the vein. At present, there are many diseases for which intravenous treatments are preferred for getting rapid actions and onsets, to maintain the constant levels of medicines in the blood for getting a smooth and steady response.

Protracted venous infusion, also called as ambulant infusionis being used in oncology for treatment. It is about the free movements to walk and go while having and wearing the small chemotherapy bags. Moreover, for long-term treatments, the patient has to be hospitalized and admitted for days or weeks to get the treatment properly and under trained staff.

IV treatments are also used for the treatment of autoimmune disorders. It may be a good choice to give chemotherapy for autoimmune disorders through IV route due to toxicity of the chemotherapeutics. Sometimes,when the patient gets stabilized by the IV route, he/she is shifted to the oral route for continuing medications. However, when it is about most of the biotherapy used for autoimmune disorders treatment as well as to achieve remission, IV route is the most preferred route. Biotherapies must be given intravenously due to their large molecules.

IV iron supplementation is the favourable route to address imbalance in the levels of iron in human blood. Currently, iron therapy is being given through the IV route as the bioavailability of the oral iron does not sufficiently and beneficially meet the needs asdoes by IV administration. For Iron supplementation, IV treatment is beneficial to meet the iron needs.Iron therapy is essential in different types of anaemia and IV route is prioritised as oral administration causes many of the adverse drugs reaction and associated complications. It is also used for pregnant women having low haemoglobin and haematocrit levels to acquire the desired level.Iron therapy is also given through IV route to chronic kidney disease patientswith anaemia.

Taking into account the merits of IV treatments, the consequences of the IV route of administration cannot be neglected. The increasing incidences due to administration via IV routes are recorded on daily basis and proven by research. Therefore,precautions must be concerned when administering through IV route.
