Infusion therapy allows patients to safely receive medication through a catheter, a flexible tube that’s placed in a vein or just under the skin. Typically, “infusion therapy” means that a drug is given intravenously (through a vein), but it can also include fluid replacements, blood transfusions, chemotherapy and antibiotics. It is often prescribed when a patient’s condition is so severe that it can’t be treated effectively by medications taken by mouth.
