When someone’s condition is so severe that they’re unable to be effectively treated with oral medications, their physician usually prescribes the administration of medication through a needle or catheter. This is called infusion therapy and is performed at hospitals and infusion clinics across the country.
There are many diseases that commonly require infusion therapy. Among those are Crohn's, infections that aren’t responsive to antibiotics taken orally, cancer and cancer-related pain, gastrointestinal diseases and disorders that prevent normal functioning of the gastrointestinal system, among others. Conditions treated with specialty infusion therapies may include congestive heart failure, immune deficiencies, dehydration, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hemophilia, and more.
