Infusion Therapies & The Conditions They Treat

Anti-Infective Therapy - The intravenous administration of antibiotic drugs, anti-fungal medication and antiviral medication for the treatment of severe infections that do not respond to oral medications. This IV therapy is typically administered to patients diagnosed with:

  • Abscesses
  • AIDS/HIV Related Infections
  • Cellulitis
  • Chronic Urinary Tract Infection
  • Endocarditis
  • Lyme Disease
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Sepsis
  • Wound Infections

Cardiac Drug Therapy (Heart Failure) - The intravenous administration of inotropic cardiac drugs and other therapies as needed for infection treatment, pain management and nutrition.

Chemotherapy - The intravenous infusion of drugs to kill cancer cells. Patients who need this therapy are typically diagnosed with cancer, AIDS/HIV, lymphomas and leukemia.

Enteral Nutrition Therapy - The administration of nutrients to the functioning portion of a patient's gastrointestinal tract. Typically, referred to as "tube feeding," this therapy is often used during the treatment of conditions such as cancer, malnutrition, dysphasia, injury, organ failure, motility disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, HIV and other conditions.

Hydration Therapy - The intravenous infusion of fluids such as dextrose and/or saline solutions with electrolytes. This therapy is typically used when a patient does not drink enough liquids and becomes dehydrated. Some common diagnoses for this condition are AIDS/HIV, cancer and excessive vomiting due to pregnancy or other conditions.

Pain Management Therapy - The intravenous infusion of drugs to control chronic or acute pain from injury, surgery or diseases such as cancer, AIDS or end-stage COPD. Patients who need this therapy typically have a high level of constant pain and have not found relief with pain medication delivered orally or topically.

Parenteral Nutrition (PN) / Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) - The intravenous administration of nutrients such as vitamins, amino acids, carbohydrates, etc., for patients who are unable to absorb nutrition through their own gastrointestinal tract. Patients who need this care are commonly diagnosed with AIDS/HIV, Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, stomach cancer, ulcerative colitis, short bowel syndrome and other conditions.

We Support Pharmacies in Community Hospitals Throughout Iowa

At CarePro, we provide parenteral (PN) nutrition support services for patients in their home, but also support pharmacies in community hospitals in Iowa. This support enables patients to remain in their own communities and still close to family and friends. Learn more about the benefits of partnering with CarePro Home Care.
