Venous access is the access to the bloodstream via the veins.Ā 

Venous access is required forĀ 

  • Intravenous (IV) treatment administration such as medication or fluids (blood or rehydrating fluids) and nutrition if required
  • Obtaining repeated venous blood samplesĀ 
  • As an access point for blood-based treatments such as dialysis or apheresis.Ā 

– Apheresis involves removing whole blood and separating its individual components to remove one particular component. The remaining blood components are re-inserted into the patientā€™s bloodstream.

Simple IV drug administration can be given as:

  • An IV infusion where continuous blood levels are required such as antibiotics, antifungals, and pain-inhibiting drugs such as morphine and other opiates
  • A ā€˜bolusā€™ of medication over 1ā€“30 mins, however bolus IV administration is infrequently used and often restricted to emergency situations.Ā 
  • By administering a drug intravenously, a first-pass metabolism of the drug, where it is metabolised rapidly after administration is avoided. Therefore, a significantly higher concentration of the drug can reach the systemic circulation, allowing a more immediate effect.Ā 

To help you complete this course, we have created a PDF to be used alongside the course content.
