What is IV Antibiotic Therapy?
If an infection is left untreated for too long, the risk of serious complications increases exponentially. For patients who have severe bacterial infections, our medical experts may recommend intravenous (IV) antibiotic therapy. IV antibiotic therapy is an intensive antibiotic treatment that administers long courses of antibiotic medication directly into the bloodstream via a central catheter or PICC line. Our patients can benefit from the results of IV antibiotic therapy, getting effective treatment for their gangrene and tissue death or other bacterial infections in the comfort, convenience, and safety of their very own homes.
What are the Benefits of IV Antibiotic Therapy?
There are many benefits of receiving IV antibiotic therapy with the medical professionals at StrideWoundCare, including:
- Minimally invasive therapy treatments
- Administers strong antibiotics to treat bacterial infections
- Can be self-administered with clinical direction
- No downtime or recovery period
What Can I Expect During My IV Antibiotic Therapy?
Your IV antibiotic therapy will be performed by one of StrideWoundCare's expert medical professionals. Before your IV antibiotic therapy begins, your medical professional will insert a central catheter through a port in the arm. This port will be covered with sterilized materials to ensure there is no risk of further infection. Once the catheter is in place, your professional will teach you how to correctly administer the IV antibiotics, so you can follow your treatment plan on your own within your own home. To learn out more about your IV antibiotic therapy in detail, we encourage you to schedule a private consultation with one of our expert staff members at your convenience.
What Can I Expect After My IV Antibiotic Therapy?
Because IV antibiotic therapy is a minimally invasive treatment, there is no formal downtime and recovery period following your procedure. Your medical professional will provide you with detailed administration instructions prior to your treatment, ensuring you are able to carry out the treatment at your convenience.
