An Introduction to IV Drip
An intravenous or IV drip is a way of delivering fluids and medications into the bloodstream through a vein. This can be done as a continuous or timed infusion, or as a short IV ‘bolus’ or push injection, which rapidly delivers a single dose of medicine directly into the bloodstream.
What are IV drips used for?
An IV drip is used to deliver medications, fluids, nutrients and blood transfusions. IV fluids can be used to treat dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, kidney injury and clinical shock.
Why does someone need an IV drip?
Different medications can be administered by different routes. In individuals who need medication or fluids replacement immediately, such as those experiencing heatstroke, IV drip is preferred over oral administration as the fluids are delivered into the bloodstream directly.
For those who are unable to meet their nutritional requirements through oral intake, such as those with dysphagia or severe eating disorders, IV can be an effective way to ensure they meet their daily nutritional requirements.
IV drip may also be administered during surgery to ensure help maintain a patient’s hydration, electrolyte and blood sugar levels.
IV Drip at Home
If you have a plan for regular IV therapy such as chemotherapy or sustained courses of antibiotics, you may be able to go home with a long-term IV access port. Medication can then be administered in your own home, either by specialist nurses from your hospital care team or by experienced qualified nurses from a trusted home care provider.
If you need support, our multi-disciplinary team of caregivers, nurses, doctors and therapists at Homage can help to develop a personalised, holistic care plan for your unique care needs.
No more missed doses. Our nurses can help dispense and administer the right dosage of medication at the right time.

Top questions about IV Drip
How long does it take for an IV to drip?
The duration of an IV drip varies depending on the type of IV treatment. On average, an IV drip can last for as short as several minutes, or as long as 90 minutes. There are also individuals who need continuous infusion, which means that the medication needs to be continuously infused at a certain rate without a set endpoint.
What IV drip treatment packages do you offer?
From ad-hoc to round-the-clock care support, we have short- and long-term care packages tailored to different care durations and for varied care needs, so that you and your loved one can find one that best fits your care arrangements. Reach out to our Care Advisors at 016 299 2188 for more details.

What our customers sayView all reviews
The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).
My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.
Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.
My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.
I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.
Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.
Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.
It's really hassle-free when u can have the COVID-19 swab test without leaving ur home. The response is really fast, the app is efficient. Thank you for your services.
I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
