Features Of IV Pole
1. Easy Maneuverability
One of the most important benefits of our IV poles is they make it easy for nurses and other medical staff to transport IV therapy accessories from one location to another within the healthcare facility without interrupting the patient's treatment.
Some patients may require multiple treatments or therapies in hospitals or healthcare centers. In such cases, an IV stand with multiple hooks can be convenient for doctors and nurses. Our IV stands are equipped with hooks or attachments to hold infusion bags, allowing healthcare professionals to accurately regulate the flow rate and administer the necessary medications.
Stability is important for IV poles since they sometimes need to hold heavy fluid bags. Our IV poles have a wide base and are made of high-quality materials, ensuring that a heavy infusion bag can be safely transported, thus safeguarding patients and medical staff.
A medical IV pole is often subjected to wear and tear as it is frequently shifted from one room to another within the hospital premises. Our IV poles are made from stainless steel or aluminum, which ensures the pole's longevity and resistance to wear and tear.
During treatment, patients require medications. If there are many medicines, multiple carts may be required, which can cause inconvenience for medical personnel. Our IV pole is equipped with trays or baskets for easy storage of medical supplies.
6. Cable management
In a healthcare setting, ensuring a safe environment is paramount for the safety of both patients and healthcare providers. By incorporating cable management features into our IV poles, we ensure a tidy and organized treatment area which is invaluable in busy healthcare settings.
7. Easy Assembly and Dismantling
Quick assembly and disassembly are crucial in fast-paced healthcare environments. Our IV pole stand is designed for quick setup, which not only saves time but also improves the efficiency of medical procedures.

Factors To Consider Before Buying IV Poles
If you go to the market to purchase a medical iv pole, you will likely get overwhelmed by the different options and configurations. Here is what to look for while buying one.
Material: IV poles are made either out of Chrome or stainless steel. While Chrome may seem like a better option as it looks more aesthetic and is inexpensive, it is more likely to break down. On the other hand, stainless steel will maintain its structure and shine for many years.
Top Style: Many top styles are available depending on the number of IV therapy bags that can be attached. You can get an IV pole with two hooks, four hooks, six hooks, and even eight hooks.
Base Style: Choosing a good base style is important as it will determine the stability of the intravenous pole. Select a base depending on the number of infusions pumps you intend to use. Some common base styles are 3-leg base, 4-leg base, 5-leg base, and six-leg base.
Castor: There are different types of castors available in the market, such as Chrome casters, Nylon casters, aluminum casters, rubber wheel ball bearing casters, and plastic casters.
Additional Features: A modern iv pole comes with additional features like detachable wire baskets that can hold medical items like notebooks, clipboards, and files. Some poles come with a laptop stand so that healthcare professionals can input electronic data while administering treatment simultaneously.
Benefits of Buying IV Poles
Stability And Mobility: IV poles provide a stable and secure platform for IV bags, pumps and tourniquet, ensuring they are taut and undisturbed. The wheeled base allows healthcare providers to move the entire setup along with the patient effortlessly.
Patient comfort: IV poles allow patients to receive fluids and medications while sitting or lying down without needing to hold the IV administration set constantly. This not only promotes patient comfort but also reduces strain on their arms.
Accurate infusion: IV poles ensure the IV bags are at the right height and position, which is critical for accurate and controlled infusion rates.
