Intravenous Infusion Therapy
- Posted on: Nov 30 2019
here are many ways in which a doctor may administer medication into a patient’s body. One of the most popular methods is through IV infusion therapy. Using a needle or catheter, treatments are administered intravenously directly into the blood. This ensures fast and efficient administration of medications that may be needed for a variety of purposes and conditions, including:
- Congestive heart failure
- Gastrointestinal conditions
Many patients turn to IV infusion therapy when traditional medications have not worked, such as oral medications or other therapies. IV infusion therapy is also considered when patients have a severe condition or are unresponsive. Infusion therapy may also include intramuscular injections or epidural injections during childbirth. The best option is determined based on the needs of the patient.
Where is IV infusion therapy performed?
Dr. Magdy Nasra can offer infusion therapy in his practice or in the home of a patient. However, patients cannot administer IV infusion therapy on their own. The administration of IVs needs to be done under the care and monitoring of a professional, such as a doctor or nurse. This avoids the need for extensive inpatient treatment that can cost money and time. Treatments may be performed in the office, at home, or in hospice.
What can I expect during my IV infusion therapy?
First, patients consult with their doctor to determine if IV infusion therapy is appropriate for their unique needs. Then, patients can work with Dr. Magdy Nasra to decide where the treatment will be administered. An appointment is made, during which the therapy will begin. A needle is injected into the veins to offer an access point for the catheter to be inserted. Once the catheter is in place, the medication can be started and given through the blood.
