IV Therapy / Infusion Therapy in Bend & Eugene, OR
There are times when over the counter medications and oral hydration fluids are simply not enough, when pills or patches are not strong enough to treat the condition. In these instances, medical providers will use a stronger treatment called IV therapy, or infusion therapy.
IV therapy or infusion therapy is a process in which fluids and sometimes medications are dispensed through a small plastic catheter into the blood system. This type of therapy usually takes place when the physical condition or ailment of the patient is severe enough, or unresponsive to, the initial medication provided to the patient.

Conditions Treated with IV Infusion Therapy
Some examples of various diseases in patients needing to undergo IV infusion include:
- Nausea & Vomiting
- Heart Failure
- Gastrointestinal conditions
Based on the severity of the patient’s situation, infusion therapy will depend on the type and severity of the condition. In some cases, patients could also receive treatment consisting of nutrients, antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs or other medications. It is the responsibility of the medical provider to decide on the process and treatment administered through IV therapy.
Close to Home
One of the biggest concerns for many patients is “How can I find treatment near me?” Luckily, with recent advances in medications these concerns have been alleviated.
Historically, this process of infusion therapy needed to be done as an in-patient procedure. This can be costly and a time consuming process for the patient. These days, however, infusion therapy can be provided either at home or in other convenient settings such sporting venues and mobile medical clinics.
Cost of IV Therapy
These types of out-patient settings take away the requirement of a long stay or travel. By bringing IV therapy out of the hospital and into the patient’s home or clinic, we can also bring the power of infusion therapy to the patient in a much more convenient setting and at a much more affordable cost. However, it is highly recommended or advisable that infusion therapy should be administered by a medical provider at all times.
Schedule an Appointment with a Certified Medical Provider
Receiving your infusion therapy at home or in an out-patient clinic can be much more convenient than needing to go to a hospital each time. However, as stated, it is important to be sure a certified medical provider is overseeing your medication treatments. A nurse or EMT is able to start an IV, however actual administration of a drug needs to be ordered and monitored by a medical provider. Knowing and being comfortable with your medical providers can ensure a successful treatment.
