All IV infusion cocktails are put into a solution of normal saline, water or Hartmanns (specific solution that’s great for hydration).
IV = intravenous – “within the vein”
Drip = “to fall in drops” – describes how the fluid drops into the delivery chamber – like water from a tap.
Infusion = to introduce fluids into the veins.
