Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy is a medical treatment in which fluids, medications, or other therapeutic substances are administered directly into a patient’s bloodstream through a needle or catheter. This method allows for the rapid and controlled delivery of substances into the body. 

Infusion therapy is commonly administered in healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, or specialized infusion centers, by healthcare professionals who have received proper training. This method offers a precise and efficient approach to delivering medications and treatments, guaranteeing the rapid and effective introduction of substances into the patient’s bloodstream. The selection of the infusion method, the catheter type utilized, and the duration of therapy are determined based on the patient’s specific medical condition and treatment plan.

Infusion Therapy Considerations

  • Administration of medications: Infusion therapy is often used to deliver medications that cannot be taken orally or for drugs that need to be administered in a controlled and precise manner. This can include antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, pain management medications, and more.
  • Hydration: Intravenous (IV) fluids are used to rehydrate patients who are unable to drink fluids by mouth due to illness, surgery, or other medical conditions. This is common in hospitals and clinics.
  • Nutritional support: Some patients who cannot eat or digest food properly may receive parenteral nutrition through infusion therapy. This involves providing essential nutrients intravenously.
  • Immunoglobulin therapy: This therapy is used to boost the immune system by infusing antibodies into patients with immunodeficiency disorders.
