Frequently Asked Questions about Infusion Therapy
What is infusion or IV therapy?
Infusion therapy is the intravenous (IV) administration of medication. IV meds are generally prescribed by a physician when a patient’s condition or disease state cannot effectively be treated by conventional therapies or oral medications. Also, some medications are only able to be delivered intravenously to treat a disease. Learn more about infusion therapy at Jackson Siegelbaum.
What is injection therapy?
An injection or shot is a method of delivering medication by inserting fluid into the body through a needle and syringe. Common types of injections include intramuscular (IM) injections and subcutaneous (Sub Q) injections. An intramuscular injection is administered directly into a muscle and a subcutaneous injection is administered just beneath the skin.
