Intravenous Therapy SERIES: Routine Care and Discontinuation

After intravenous therapy has been started, the patient, the venipuncture site, and the I.V. system itself require regular monitoring and care. This care is necessary for the prevention or early detection of complications associated with I.V. therapy.
