Continuous infusion: A morphine drip is a continuous morphine intravenous infusion. Pain medications such as morphine can be administered as an infusion to help with constant pain. In some cases, a patient controlled administraion infusion (PCA) system is used whereby you can safely administer yourself an extra dose when needed for severe pain.
