Caption: Intravenous drip. An elderly male patient receives an intravenous drip (infusion) in a hospital ward. This is the slow introduction of fluid into the bloodstream. The fluid passes down from its plastic container through tubing into a vein in the patient's forearm. Intravenous infusions are commonly used to give blood or plasma to replace that lost in an accident or operation. Sugar and salt solutions may also be infused to replace or maintain body fluids in patients who are unable to eat or drink. Certain drugs can also be administered by intravenous infusion.
