Infusion Therapy is an alternative option for medication administration when traditional oral medications prove ineffective. Traditional oral medications can prove ineffective for a variety of reasons, one being that stomach acids can destroy certain types of medication before it even has a chance to effectively treat the underlying condition or disease.
By and large, “Infusion therapy” entails drug administration through intravenous means. But, infusion therapy can also refer to intramuscular injections, epidural injections (into membranes that surround the spinal cord), and additional non-oral means.
What Conditions Require Infusion Therapy?
Infections that can’t be treated with oral antibiotics require infusion therapy, as does cancer (and pain related to cancer), immune deficiencies, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s, congestive heart failure, gastrointestinal disease, dehydration, hemophilia, arthritis (rheumatoid), and more.
Medical advancements have come a long way since the 1980s, because what used to be an inpatient therapy can now be administered in alternative settings. Infusion therapy can now be administered in the outpatient setting (outpatient infusion therapy centers), or even given to patients in their own home (when administered by specially trained medical professionals). As a result, infusion therapy doesn’t have to be tremendously expensive anymore, and individuals seeking infusion therapy can now resume normal lifestyle and work activities during treatment.
Some Examples of Infusion Therapies:
- Anticoagulation Therapy
- Antihemophilic Factors
- Pain Management
- Parenteral Nutrition
