How does infusion therapy work?

Infusion therapy in Thousand Oaks directly introduces medication or fluids into the bloodstream via an intravenous (IV) line. Upon administration, the medication enters the circulatory system, bypassing the digestive system and allowing for rapid absorption into the body. This method ensures the medication reaches its target tissues or organs quickly and at a precise dosage, leading to more efficient treatment outcomes.

Once in the bloodstream, the medication travels throughout the body, exerting its therapeutic effects on specific cells, tissues, or organs. For example, in rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus, infusion therapy can target and suppress overactive immune responses, reducing inflammation and alleviating symptoms. Similarly, infusion therapy for hydration or nutrient supplementation replenishes vital fluids and nutrients directly into the bloodstream, promoting overall health and wellness.

What happens during the infusion therapy?

During your infusion therapy, you’ll be comfortably seated in our state-of-the-art infusion center. A registered nurse will insert an intravenous (IV) line into your vein, typically in your arm. The nurse will monitor the infusion process throughout, ensuring your safety and comfort. Once the IV is in place, the prescribed medication or fluids will be slowly administered into your bloodstream. The infusion rate may vary depending on the medication and your needs.

Throughout the session, you’ll have access to amenities such as snacks and beverages to make your experience more enjoyable. After the infusion, the IV line will be removed, and you can resume your normal activities. Our team will provide aftercare instructions and schedule any follow-ups as needed to monitor your progress.

The potential side effects of infusion therapy in Thousand Oaks vary depending on the medication and individual factors. Common side effects may include mild discomfort at the infusion site, headache, nausea, or fatigue.

Featured Infusion

Krystexxa (pegloticase) is a medication primarily used in the treatment of chronic gout, a condition characterized by severe and recurrent attacks of arthritis due to elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. Unlike traditional gout medications that aim to lower uric acid levels, Krystexxa works by breaking down uric acid directly. It is administered intravenously and is typically reserved for individuals who have not responded to other treatments. Krystexxa can be highly effective in reducing symptoms and preventing gout flare-ups, offering relief to those with chronic gout who have struggled to find relief through other means.
