IV Antibiotic and Intravenous Therapy

Some medically complex conditions require a consistent dose of antibiotics to fight infection or fluids to correct electrolyte imbalances. We offer IV therapy because it is proven as the fastest way to deliver fluids and medications through your body. 

Some of the conditions you may receive IV antibiotic therapy for are: 

  • Sepsis 
  • Bacteremia
  • Pneumonia
  • Wounds and bone infections
  • Other infections 

IV therapies are commonly referred to as a “drip” because many systems of administration use a drip chamber, which prevents air from entering the blood stream and allows our clinical team to set the rate for medication to enter your body. 

Possible IV medications for administration include:

  • Dobutamine
  • Dopamine
  • Epinephrine
  • Nesiritide
  • Norepinephrine
  • Phenylephrine
  • Isoprotenerol 
  • Milrinone
  • Amiodarone

  • Esmolol
