Treatment Options

Infusion therapy — also known as IV therapy — involves administering medications intravenously. This is done by injecting a needle directly into the patient’s arm. It allows for much more efficient treatment of chronic illnesses since it delivers medicine, antibiotics, and/or hydration directly into the bloodstream. As a result, there’s a higher absorption rate and you can obtain relief faster.

Therapeutic antibody treatments play an important role in the state's ongoing fight against COVID-19. Healthcare systems, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities are encouraged to use these tools to reduce hospitalizations.
