Sitios para administrar líquidos intravenosos

Las vías intravenosas (IV) con frecuencia se colocan dentro de una vena en la mano, el pie o el cuero cabelludo de los bebés que están demasiado enfermos como para recibir todos los alimentos y líquidos por la boca. El ombligo también tiene un gran vaso que se puede utilizar para administrar líquidos intravenosos. Algunas veces, se coloca una vía intravenosa grande, llamada vía central o PICC, por medio de una técnica estéril o por medio de cirugía con el fin de suministrar líquidos intravenosos altamente concentrados y por un largo plazo.
