Is It Dangerous If The Bubbles In The IV Line Enter The Vein?
Afternoon, yesterday my wife was discharged from the IV. I didn’t notice that there was a bubble in the infusion tube. I only noticed the hose after the infusion fluid was replaced. Only my wife said she felt sick when the infusion was running. My question is, is the pain a sign of a bubble entering the vein or not. Then what is the solution if there are bubbles that have already entered the body? Thank you for your attention and answer.
Hi Hidayat, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Embolism is a blockage that occurs in blood vessels caused by blood clots, cholesterol, air, amniotic fluid. An embolism that occurs due to the presence of air in the IV line is very dangerous, because when it enters the vein, blood will enter the heart so that it will cause blockage in the heart, and cause heart failure. . If there is pain when the infusion tube is flowing, the possible causes are:
Infusion jammed blood vessels ruptured Infusion wound swelling Presence of infection It is advisable to consult the doctor who treats you if you feel pain and if swelling occurs in the infused arm, so that an examination is carried out and the cause of your complaint is found.
