Nutritional Assessment & Infusion Center
We are pleased to offer IV Fluid Vitamin & Medication Therapy for high-risk pregnancies in our Central Austin obstetrical office!
Patients will now be able to receive IV hydration, IV Zofran, Reglan, Phenergan and Decadron for refractory hyperemesis. Additionally, IV multivitamin and B-12 replacement and supplementation will be readily available.
For those patients with iron-deficiency anemia refractory to oral replacement and for patients intolerant to oral iron, we can simply and easily monitor and replace their iron stores using a variety of options.
As rare as they are, APA is also equipped to monitor and intervene in the event of any form of allergic or anaphylactic-type reaction.
Austin Perinatal Associates has served the complex obstetrical needs of the women of central Texas for more than 19 years. Some of our recent patients have identified the paucity of options for infusion therapy for patients with the diagnosis of dehydration, hyperemesis gravidarum and refractory iron deficiency anemia. Most of these patients require hospital admission or outpatient evaluation and treatment at a hematology/oncology office, receiving iron infusions alongside chemotherapy patients.
We are excited to offer this comfortable and safe alternative for pregnant patients requiring IV fluids and medications. And, as always, we are here to assist all pregnant patients with compassionate and professional care. Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. David Berry or any of our nursing staff, should you have any questions about your patients’ specific needs.
