Infusion therapy is given to patients diagnosed with inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis), usually when oral therapies fail to control symptoms and flares. The medications used are Remicade and Entyvio. The infusions are given in an interval determined by the physician.

Dayton Gastro has two offices with infusion suites, which are rooms are equipped with reclining chairs, TVs, etc, for patient comfort. Infusions can also be scheduled in outpatient areas set up by the area hospitals if the patient prefers or insurance dictates.

When receiving infusion therapy, an IV is started with normal saline solution and the medications are given via this IV route. Depending on the medication, the infusions will take 30 minutes to 2 hours. The first infusion is given slower to monitor for possible side effects. Some patients are given medications prior to the infusion who have experienced some mild side effects in the past.

Vital signs are taken and monitored throughout the infusion.

Generally, after the loading dose is given, the most common interval is every 8 weeks, but that may change based upon patient response to the therapy.
