How Does The Infusion Rate Influence The Patient’s Condition?
What is the effect on the patient if the rate or speed of the IV fluid does not match what is set?
Hello Raja, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The infusion rate of each patient is set according to the needs of his condition where if tetsan is changed to be faster or slower than it should be it can cause abnormal fluid intake through the infusion.
For example, if a person who is not dehydrated or has a heart condition gets fluid at a faster rate than it should, it can cause fluid intake that is too fast and excessive so that it can cause fluid leakage in the lungs or cause worsening of the patient's heart function .
Whereas in patients who need fluid intake quickly and a lot, as in patients with dehydration, if the rate of fluid is slower than it should be able to cause the need for fluid resuscitation is not reached and causes worsening conditions.
Therefore, it is very important to maintain the rate of infusion of the patient in accordance with the doctor's recommendations to prevent the occurrence of worsening conditions or unwanted side effects.
I hope this helps.
