Swedish term or phrase: ge i.v. volym
From a set of medical guidelines:

"Patienten kan vara takykard med perifer vasokonstriktion som håller BT uppe trots hypovolemi. När sådan situation föreligger (nästan alltid i någon omfattning) kan sedering eller sövning i samband med intubation minska stresspådraget med med rejäla BT-fall som följd - förbered dig på detta genom att ge i.v. volym även om BT är normalt."

I cannot interpret "ge i.v. volym" in a way that makes sense here. You could translate it as "give/administer volume intravenously", but what is it a "volume" of? I.e. what specific substance?
