Understanding Infusion Therapy and Why It’s Necessary

When individuals become extremely ill, their bodies begin to reject food and drinks. In extreme cases, their bodies even reject medications given to them orally. To help treat individuals who suffer from such devastating illnesses and conditions, the Phoenix medical infusion team at Vasco Infusion use infusion therapy to medicate the body in a way that it won’t reject.

What is Infusion Therapy?

This type of therapy uses a sterile catheter that is inserted into a vein to administer the medication that the body needs to heal. Once upon a time, this method was only used by hospitals, but as the need for it has grown, outpatient facilities and in-home nurses have been granted permission to utilize the technique when necessary. The Phoenix medical infusion team at Vasco Infusion is highly trained and qualified to perform injection therapy.

Common forms of injection therapy include: chemotherapy, hydration, anti-coagulation therapy, blood component stimulating factor, pain management and inotropic pain management.

What Can Injection Therapy Treat?

Typically, this type of therapy is only used on individuals with serious disease or chronic infections. Some treatable conditions include pains caused by cancer, Crohn’s Disease, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and vomiting, diarrhea and nausea caused by dehydration. Patients with complex illnesses such as congestive heart failure, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and some immune deficiency disorders may also benefit from infusion therapy.
