Understanding Infusion Therapy

Infusion therapy involves administering medication, fluid, or nutrients directly into a vein through a small catheter or needle. It can be used to treat various chronic conditions, help with pain management, and provide nutrition support. The infusion process usually takes place in an outpatient setting, where patients receive treatment on a scheduled basis.

You should talk to your doctor about infusion therapy if:

  • You have difficulty swallowing oral medications.
  • Your digestive system does not allow oral medications to be properly absorbed.
  • Your high dose of medication causes your stomach to become upset.
  • Your condition has not responded well to traditional treatments.
  • You are allergic to your oral medication, or it has severe side effects.
  • Your treatment requires a controlled dosage that only infusion therapy can provide.

Types of Infusion Therapy

There are various types of infusion therapy, including intravenous (into a vein), subcutaneous (under the skin), intramuscular (into a muscle), and epidural (into the spine). The type of infusion used will depend on your condition and specific needs.

  • Intravenous Therapy (IV): Commonly used for administering medication, fluids, or nutrients directly into the bloodstream. It is performed via a small catheter inserted into a vein in your hand or arm.
  • Subcutaneous Therapy: This involves injecting medication under the skin with a needle and syringe. The medication is slowly absorbed by the body over time.
  • Intramuscular Therapy: This method involves injecting medication directly into a muscle. It can provide faster relief, but only small doses can be given at once.
