Frequently Asked Questions
What is an infusion center?
Just as in a hospital, an infusion center is where you can get treatments with medications through an IV. The Boster Center infusion services provide specialized healthcare for individuals who require intravenous (IV) medication as part of their treatment plan. Services may include administering IV medications, hydration therapy, nutritional support, and other necessary treatments to improve and maintain a patient’s health and wellness.
Patients who seek out infusion service treatments often do so because they need to get intravenous medication that can't be taken another way, like pills. The intravenous medication is put in a bag and then put into an IV, and nurses give the medication to the patient through a needle in their arm.
What are infusions used for?
Infusions are used for conveniently administering intravenous medication into the bloodstream. This type of care is useful because it allows nurses to introduce a large amount of medication directly into the bloodstream quickly, making patient care more effective. Infusions are used for different types of medications, such as fluids, antibiotics, or vitamins, as well as other compound medications designed for specific treatment protocols.
Why would someone have an infusion?
Infusion therapy is often used for patients who need medicine quickly or for patients who can't take medicine by mouth. Infusion is commonplace in hospital settings. It is especially beneficial to patients with chronic conditions like cancer and autoimmune diseases, as well as those recovering from surgery or an illness. It's also used when a patient needs a high dose of medicine that wouldn't be safe to take by mouth or wouldn't be absorbed well. The infusion center at Boster helps these patients and their families manage symptoms and improve their overall wellness.
What is infusion therapy used to treat?
Infusion therapy can be used to treat many different types of diseases and conditions in patients, such as cancer, infections, dehydration, migraine headaches, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The Boster Center’s infusion service is also used by families and patients with Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel disease, lupus, myasthenia gravis, neuromyelitis optica, thyroid disease, and ulcerative colitis.
What are the different types of infusion therapy?
There are a few different types of infusion therapy, like IV therapy, which is when the medicine is injected into a vein, and subcutaneous therapy, which is when the medicine is injected just under the skin. There are also other types of infusion therapies, like intrathecal therapy and epidural injections. To learn more, call the Boster Center office and speak with one of our knowledgeable infusion nurses at (614) 304-3444.
Is infusion therapy like chemotherapy?
Infusion therapy and chemotherapy treatments are similar in that they both involve medications that help to treat diseases. The difference is that chemotherapy is used to treat cancer cells, while infusion therapy is used to help treat other diseases, like autoimmune disorders, infections, and allergies. The medications used in infusion therapy are less powerful than those used in chemotherapy.
Is infusion therapy safe?
Infusion therapy treatments are generally a safe means of treating a disease or an illness as long as trained healthcare physicians do it. However, there can be side effects, so it's important to talk to your physician and nurse if you're considering infusions at an infusion center. Of course, with all medical treatments, risk is involved, and infusion-related reactions or an allergic reaction to the medication can occur. While not commonplace, infusion reactions can appear as irritation at the injection site or manifest as flu-like symptoms such as nausea, headache, swelling, shortness of breath, fatigue, fast heart rate, and body aches.
What are the side effects of an infusion?
The most common side effects associated with infusion therapy treatments include soreness, swelling, or redness at the injection site or feeling lightheaded or dizzy. Some patients may also have an allergic reaction to the medicine or nutrient, so it is important to talk to your doctor before starting infusion therapy at our infusion center.
Are families allowed to accompany the patient during infusion treatments?
Yes! Family members are welcome to accompany the patient during any appointments or treatments they receive at our center; in fact, we encourage family involvement in order to provide supportive care throughout the entire process.
Does your infusion center accept insurance?
Yes, our office accepts many major insurance care companies such as Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, CIGNA, Humana, United Healthcare, and more. Please contact us with any questions regarding your specific insurance plan so we can better assist you in finding coverage options that best meet your needs.
