Ambulatory Infusion Center

What is infusion therapy?Ambulatory_Infusion.jpg

Infusion therapy involves the administration of medication through a needle or catheter.  It is prescribed when a patient’s condition cannot be treated effectively by oral medications.  Typically, “infusion therapy” means that a drug is administered intravenously, but the term also may refer to situations where drugs are provided through other non-oral routes.  Prescription drug therapies commonly administered via infusion include antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, chemotherapy, hydration, pain management and parenteral nutrition.
