Injections

Image Injections

There are certain circumstances in which it is necessary to administer medication via injection instead of orally or intravenously:

Supportive Care

Chemotherapy can affect blood cell production in the bone marrow which put a person at risk for developing infections, anemia and bleeding problems. Colony-stimulating factors, such as Neulasta, Neupogen, or Aranesp, are injectable medications that stimulate the production of blood cells and promote their ability to function.Our nurses administer these injections as needed based on patientís laboratory results.

Immunotherapy

Some types of immunotherapy, such as Interferon, are administered via subcutaneous (under the skin) injections.Often, our nurses will instruct patients how to administer these injections at home for their convenience.
