Infusion

Infusion therapy involves the treatment of a patient with solutions given intravenously to promote a patient’s recovery from her / his illness. Depending on the underlying illness, the solution may contain an appropriate active pharmaceutical ingredient. 

This defines the type of therapy: For example, fluid therapy aims to infuse larger volumes of water and electrolytes to patients for treatment of volume depletion such as major bleeding, dehydration or shock.

Another example might be anti-infective therapy which means the treatment of a patient suffering from an infection with bacteria or fungi by infusing solutions containing antibiotics and antifungals.

IV infusion typically takes place in a clinical setting, such as a doctor’s office, hospital, or infusion center. Some types of infusion therapy can be given by healthcare providers at the home.

IV therapy is administered by nurses or trained medical professionals. The procedure requires careful monitoring.

Intravenous vitamin therapy is a way to give high concentrations of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream, allowing rapid absorption of higher doses of the vitamins and minerals than if the person got them through food or supplements.
