IV Infusion Therapy
Your healthcare provider may have informed you that you need to receive intravenous (IV) infusions of a medication to treat your health condition. Infusion therapy is prescribed when a patient's condition cannot be treated effectively by oral medications. For many rheumatology, neurology, oncology, hematology, and infectious disease patients, advances in biotechnology medicines and equipment have made it possible for them to receive advanced therapies intravenously, directly into the bloodstream, to treat or manage their conditions.
Common Conditions TreatedDiseases commonly requiring infusion therapy include infections that are unresponsive to oral antibiotics, cancer and cancer-related pain, dehydration, gastrointestinal diseases or disorders, congestive heart failure, Crohn's Disease, lupus, hemophilia, immune deficiencies, asthma, migraine, osteomyelitis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, CIPD, and more.
Benefits of Outpatient IV TherapyInfusion Therapy allows you to spend more time with friends and family in your own environment and less time in the hospital. This method of treatment offers a decreased risk of infections so you are able to return to work or school more comfortably and safely. Medical costs are lower because you receive care on a come-and-go basis rather than as part of a hospital stay.
Often it is recommended you receive a series of IV's as part of your care plan. It is important to work with an experienced team at an outpatient facility that is close to home for your convenience.
