What Are IV Poles?

A staple of hospital operations, intravenous poles - also known as IV poles - are devices that keep intravenous bags full of medicine or fluid in place. The bags are hung from the hooks at the top of the pole. They are then connected by a tube into a patient’s veins to deliver the vital fluids securely and efficiently. 

Some IV poles include a rolling base so they can be easily transported throughout hospital operations for easy accessibility.

How Important Are Reliable IV Poles?

IV poles are a common sight in any healthcare facility. Healthcare professionals rely on IV poles to be easily transported to where they’re needed most - from patient to patient - to provide essential care. 

When choosing hospital IV poles, you want to make sure they can withstand repeated use and the harsh environments of medical applications. Intravenous poles are supposed to complement and support healthcare professionals during their operations, not hinder. Choosing the most reliable IV poles is crucial to prevent this.
