Infusion therapy is the administration of medication through a needle or a catheter. When a patient’s medical condition does not respond to oral medications intravenous therapy may be needed. Many types of medications can be administered intravenously, including antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, pain medication and parenteral nutrition. The benefits of IV therapy are that they provide the patient with direct administration of the medication into the blood stream, avoiding the body’s first pass mechanism of medication absorption. This leads to more effective results and better outcome for the patient.
There are numerous types of patients who may require infusion services. A few examples of some of the patients we see at our infusion center include but are not limited to:
- Oncology patients
- Dehydrated patients
- Those suffering from malabsorption due to gastrointestinal disease
- Crohn’s Disease patients
- Hemophilia patients
- Those with immunodeficiencies
- Multiple Sclerosis patients
