What is infusion therapy?
“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” is a service involving the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the blood vessel of a patient. It is also referred to as intravenous or IV infusion. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable approaches to drug delivery are commonly used when oral/pill medications are unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate. A number of the newest medications are biologic (made or derived from living cells) and cannot be taken via the mouth, like a pill, because they are no longer effective after exposure to the gastrointestinal tract. Biologic medications are frequently used to address inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis among other autoimmune disorders. For more information on receiving IV therapy in Indianapolis, IN, request a consultation at an Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology location in your area.
