Anti-Infectives Infusion Therapy

Su sistema inmunitario normalmente rechaza la enfermedad solo. A veces, el cuerpo puede necesitar la ayuda extra de un medicamento antinfeccioso (AI) si se produce una infección por bacterias, virus o hongos. Si la infección es demasiado grave o compleja para tratar con medicamentos orales, se administra una terapia de infusión antinfecciosa.

Nutrition Support Infusion Therapy

Many medical conditions prevent people from eating or absorbing enough nutrients. When this happens, nutrition support is given to help them meet their daily nutrition needs. There are 2 main types of therapy: enteral nutrition (tube feeding) and parenteral nutrition (intravenous feeding). Your healthcare provider will determine the therapy that is appropriate for your condition.

Heart Failure Infusion Therapy

Your heart pumps oxygen and nutrient-rich blood throughout your body, which helps your body’s organs work properly. If the heart becomes damaged or weak, patients may develop a condition called heart failure (HF), which means the heart is not able to pump enough blood to the body. Heart failure therapy is given to help control symptoms.

Immunoglobulin Infusion Therapy

Immunoglobulins (IG), otherwise known as antibodies, help the body fight off illness. Some people have trouble producing enough of their own antibodies (called an immunodeficiency), while others may not have antibodies that function properly (called an autoimmune disorder). These conditions can cause a weakened immune system to be at risk of infection or disease. Immunoglobulin therapy is given to replace the body’s immune system with adequate amounts of antibodies to prevent infections.

Bleeding Disorders Infusion Therapy

The most common bleeding disorders are hemophilia (little or no clotting factor in the blood) and von Willebrand disease (low levels or a defect of von Willebrand factor). Both disorders can cause prolonged and dangerous bleeding. Factor therapy is given to help replace the missing factors in the blood.
