IV Infusion Therapy in Holmdel, NJ
- Posted on: Sep 30 2019
There are many ways to keep the body healthy. Some patients take daily vitamins to make sure their body is getting the vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best. Others participate in daily exercise to ensure they keep their heart health. In addition, some patients may want to speak to a doctor about the benefits of infusing medications or nutrients directly into the blood stream via IV infusion therapy.
What is IV infusion therapy?
Delivering medication or other fluids into he body via the bloodstream is a faster and more effective than oral administration. By entering into the blood stream via intravenous injection, patients can quickly obtain what they need through infusion therapy.
What can be infused through an IV?
Below are just a few examples of what can be administered via IV infusion therapy:
- Chemotherapy medications
- Epidural injections
- Intramuscular injections
Some conditions may warrant infusion of medications, including cancer, diabetes, dehydration, congestive heart failure, and even arthritis. When the injection is applied via the blood vessel, it can immediate assist in a way traditional medication administration cannot.
Are infusions done in the office or at home?
Dr. Magdy Nasra of Holmdel, NJ can provide infusion therapy for patients in either way. Sometimes infusions may be provided in a hospice or at home, while others may need to visit the doctor’s office. During the initial consultation appointment, the doctor can evaluate the patient and determine if they can use portable infusion pumps to deliver medications intravenously in the privacy of their own home. Some medications may be monitored closely, and home treatment might not be a possibility. Even when patients have their infusion therapy done at home, their treatment still needs to be monitored closely by a professional. Our team can determine if home therapies can be completed in this manner.
