Course Overview

Intravenous (IV) therapy is common in many healthcare settings, especially acute care. It allows for direct access to the patient’s venous system so fluids and medications can be given. As a medical assistant, you may be required to assist with or perform IV-related tasks. Therefore, you should be familiar with the equipment used. The goal of this course is to educate certified medical assistants in the acute setting on various IV devices and equipment.
