Antiemetic therapy is to prevent nausea and vomiting. Antiemetics are typically used to treat motion sickness and the side effects of chemotherapy.
Antibiotics are widely used in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. Antibiotics are produced by various microorganisms and fungi which inhibit the growth of or destroy bacteria and other microorganisms.
Therapy that decreases gut contraction and spasm. These drugs work by blocking the effects of the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system.
Enteral nutrition generally refers to any method of feeding that uses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to deliver part or all of a person’s caloric requirements. The feeding is delivered directly into the gut via a tube.
Hydration therapy is the infusion of fluids directly into the bloodstream. By using IV delivery, 100% of the administered dose of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fluids is absorbed immediately on a cellular level. Hydration is commonly used in conjunction with chemotherapy therapies or for pregnancies causing prolonged emesis.
A class of drugs that are used to treat inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis, juvenile arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), ankylosing spondylitis and psoriasis. These drugs are able to reduce inflammation and stop disease progression.
Tunneled catheters and implanted ports are the other types of central venous catheters, which are tubes threaded through veins to a spot near the heart for the purposes of giving medications. Tunneled catheters and implanted ports are typically left under the skin to keep them in place and require flushing periodically with saline solution or clot-inhibiting medication.
Chemo is a type of treatment that includes a drug or combination of drugs to treat cancer. The goal of chemo is to stop or slow the growth of cancer cells. Chemotherapy is used most often to describe drugs that kill cancer cells directly. These are sometimes referred to as “anti-cancer” drugs or “antineoplastics.”
Human immune globulin therapy is used for the treatment of immunodeficiency, prophylaxis of infectious diseases, and in the management of a variety of other inflammatory and autoimmune disorders.
Inotropic therapy makes an injured or weakened heart pump harder. It’s used to make the heart muscle’s contractions stronger. It may also speed the heart’s rhythm.
Pain Management therapy is the treatment of intractable or chronic pain.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, progressive disorder characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) in the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary artery) for no apparent reason. The pulmonary arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood from the right side of the heart through the lungs.
TPN is receiving nutrients intravenously. TPN bypasses the digestive system entirely and goes directly into the bloodstream, where the nutrients are absorbed.
