    Quisiera traducir "poner un suero a una persona".
    "To put someone on a drop??"
    Insert an I.V. means "canalizar una vía" and I´m not looking for this.
    Thanks a lot

    I think you mean drip. To put somebody on a drip.

    In common usage, the phrase is "give an I.V."
    I think you are looking for a technical term that is used in nursing. You might try one of the other boards instead of "general vocabulary".

    You put someone on a drip. Not in a drip.

    It's common (although not formal or technical) to say, "I put her on a drip" to mean that she was getting intravenous fluids. It depends how formal or technical you want to get. "Put someone on a drip" might be two nurses (friends) talking about a patient or family members talking about it. If a doctor was explaining to a patient, he would say, "gave an I.V." or "inserted an I.V." or "gave intravenous fluids" or something like that.
