Direct Medication, Faster Healing
IV (intravenous) infusion therapy is the delivery of medication and nutrition directly into the veins for faster absorption into the bloodstream. Because this is an on-demand, out-patient procedure the freedom to come and go makes infusion therapy a great option that allows for less time in a doctor’s office and more time living life.
IV infusion therapy can be used for a variety of medication deliveries. Depending on your diagnosis and particular needs, your doctor will choose which medication is right for you and the procedures will begin shortly after.
Speaking of the procedure, it’s a fairly straight-forward, minimally invasive process where an intravenous catheter is placed in your arm or hand where the medications are then infused (“dripped”) over a period of time. How much medicine and how long your session is depends on your diagnosis and your doctor.
