What is Infusion Therapy?
With infusion therapy, medication is administered through a needle or catheter instead of being taken orally. This can be especially useful when the medication needs to be given at a controlled pace. It allows for complete control of dosage.
It is also necessary for some patients and types of medications to ensure the drugs do not lose their effectiveness. This can happen if they are taken orally. So, to prevent that, infusion therapy is utilized instead.
Infusion therapy can be used to deliver:
- Blood factors
- Inotropic heart medications
It can be used for a wide range of conditions, including lupus, osteoporosis, type 1 diabetes, and Crohn’s disease.
