Sometimes when people become very ill with a complex disease, they cannot eat, let alone take medications orally. In addition, some medications cannot be given orally because the stomach acids will destroy them, and they will no longer be effective to treat your disease. There are many reasons why medications are introduced into the body rather than through the mouth.
What is Infusion Therapy?
An alternative to oral treatment is infusion therapy: administering medication through the use of a sterile catheter that is inserted into a vein and secured.
What Does Infusion Therapy Treat?
Infusion therapy is typically used to treat serious or chronic infections that do not respond to oral antibiotics. Cancers and the pain caused by cancers; diseases of the gastrointestinal tract; dehydration caused by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea; and other serious diseases, such as Crohn's disease, are typical examples. Additional complex illnesses that respond best to intravenous medications include: multiple sclerosis, some forms of arthritis, congestive heart failure and some types of immune deficiency disorders. Certain congenital diseases require intravenous medications as well.
Smart Neuro Health offers clinical expertise to meet the unique needs of our patients using infusion therapies as part of their medication treatment plan. Our team works together to monitor your therapy while helping you manage side effects and avoid drug interactions. While we know the process of taking your medications by infusion therapy is not easy, we are dedicated to making the process of managing your condition through medication as simple as possible.
