What is infusion therapy?
“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” is the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the vein of a patient. This process is also known as intravenous or IV infusion therapy. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable approaches to medication administration are typically used when pill/oral medications are insufficient, inappropriate, or unavailable. Many of the latest medications are made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be taken via the mouth, as they will not remain effective after exposure to the digestive tract. Biologic medications are often used to address inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and other autoimmune disorders. If you or a loved one are seeking infusion therapy in Tulsa, OK, request a consultation at an Adult Gastroenterology Associates location near you.
