Installation of IV tubes aims to facilitate the administration of medicines by injection, to meet the needs of body fluids and patient nutrition.
After releasing the IV tube, often the patient will feel pain, swelling in the area of the injection site, minimal bleeding, stiffness so difficult to move. This condition is a normal condition in the majority of cases encountered. Complaints will gradually subside by itself.
Pain and stiffness or difficulty moving can be caused by injury to blood vessels or injury to
post peripheral nerves during infusion.
But other conditions such as phlebitis (inflammation of blood vessels)
In this case, if your condition has not improved in the next few days, or has gotten worse, do not hesitate to do a re-examination to the nearest doctor
To help reduce complaints, compress with cold water, rest your hands. If it hurts, try to do small movements with your hands slowly but often and train your hands to keep active moving carefully.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
