Through the advancement of technology, our healthcare system has grown exponentially. Infusion therapy has become an effective form of delivering medication directly to the veins (intravenously). We want you to know everything about infusion therapy from FlexCare Infusion Center, and how infusion treatments can help you live a healthier life.
Infusion vs. Injection Treatment
Using gravity or a pump to regulate the rate of administration, infusion therapy is recommended for conditions that can’t be treated by traditional medicine. Some intravenous medications are given through injections or injectables. When medication is administered through IV Push or through injection, it means that the medication is slowly introduced intravenously by a syringe.
Infusion Therapy with FlexCare
Infusions are typically administered by registered nurses, nurse practitioners or physicians. Drugs may also be administered by non-licensed staff such as medical assistants and IV techs. Typically, conditions or diseases that don’t respond to oral medication are treated with infusion therapy. At FlexCare Infusion Center, we treat conditions such as osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases and much more.
