Home infusion therapy involves the intravenous at-home administration of medicines into the patient’s body with the help of a needle and catheter. It is prescribed by physicians and administered by trained healthcare professionals. Home infusion therapy is employed for the treatment of certain diseases when oral medications prove to be ineffective or the patient fails to respond to it after a point. It reduces the time spent by patients in hospitals, nursing homes, and clinics. Home infusion therapy facilitates the administration of antibiotics, nutrients, and other fluids into the patient’s veins on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, depending on the seriousness of the disease. It is an effective and safe alternative to hospitalization for the treatment of diseases. This is due the friendly home environment in which drugs are administered, that subsequently help in faster recovery from diseases. Home infusion therapy is used in the treatment of diseases that remain unresponsive to oral medication such as cancer, pain related to cancer, and gastrointestinal diseases. It is also used to treat diabetes, dehydration, and cystic fibrosis. Home infusion therapy improves medication adherence and reduces unplanned hospitalization. Some major infusion devices used for the administration of medicines include infusion pump, intravenous set, and needleless connectors.
