I understand this procedure is recommended for the replacement of fluids and/or nutrients, correction of deficiencies and other therapeutic effects. I understand this procedure is considered medically unnecessary and “experimental” by some medical providers. It is not intended to mitigate alleviate, cure, or treat my medical conditions. I have been advised that other treatments can been used to treat my current conditions, including, but not limited to, prescription medication, over-the-counter medication, and nutritional supplements, and these have been explained to my full satisfaction.
I understand that the benefit of IV nutrient therapy is much greater if I follow a healthy lifestyle (Non-smoking, weight control, proper exercise and diet). I understand, as with any other medical procedures, a small percentage of patients do not respond to this therapy and possibly have adverse reactions. I have informed the Provider performing the IV nutrient therapy of any allergies to drugs or substances that may be included in my IV solution and of any prior reactions to IVs. I have informed the Provider of all of my medications and supplements that I have or am currently taking.
The IV procedure involves inserting a needle and catheter into my vein and infusing fluids that have nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, as discussed with me prior to treatment and I have agreed upon.
I understand the benefits of IV therapy allow for higher concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in my blood stream. This also works to bypass the liver’s metabolism of substances and the degradation of substances from the GI tract.
I understand that there is no implied or stated guarantee of success or effectiveness of the IV nutrient therapy I am about to receive. The procedure has been adequately explained to me by my Provider, and I understand I am free to withdraw my consent and discontinue treatment at any time.
I understand that IV nutrient therapy may cause: burning/stinging/swelling at the site of infusion, weakness, fatigue, allergic reaction, muscle spasms, local thrombophlebitis, air embolism, congestive heart failure, lowering of blood sugar, fever, chills, cardiac arrest, stroke, or even death.
