Sometimes people become so ill that they cannot eat or take medications orally. In addition, some medications cannot be given orally because stomach acids will destroy them, making the medications ineffective. There are many reasons why medications are introduced into the body other than through the mouth.
IV Infusion Therapy involves the administration of medication through a needle or catheter as prescribed by the patient’s doctor. It is prescribed when a patient’s condition is so severe that it cannot be treated effectively by oral medications. Some of our therapies include:
- Prolia / Reclast
- IV Antibiotics / Antifungals
- IV Fluids
- Allergy Injections
- Port / PICC Line Care
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Osteoporosis / Osteoarthritis
