What Glucose IV Infusion is used for?
This medicine is a source for energy support, which can be used alone or in combination with an injectable nutrient supplement. For example, (1) in patients who are suffering from gastrointestinal tract malfunction (such as, when bowel rest is needed because of gastrointestinal surgery), or (2) impairment of protein absorption by gastrointestinal tract, or (3) in extensive burns, where metabolic requirements for protein are substantially increased, thereby they cannot be met by taking normal meals alone.
