Current Topics in IV Therapy for Hydration and Nutrition

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Mona Inocentes and Deb Pfister from Thrive RX discuss the latest topics in IV therapies, including answers to common questions such as:

  • My doctor ordered home health services for IV infusions for fluids, but since I only have it every few weeks my insurance won’t pay and it’s very cumbersome. Help?!
  • My child is constantly getting infections and then ends up in the hospital – I think it’s from poor line care. What can I do to help reduce the risk of infections from the catheter site?
  • Are people with Mito successfully using IV therapy for fluids and nutrition support outside of the hospital? What do I need to know and what should I tell my doctor?
