Ambulatory Infusion Unit: (573) 882-5990
Our Ambulatory Infusion Unit (AIU) team is made up of highly trained individuals who specialize in oncology care, focusing on both patient and family care, treatment, education and service.
The nursing staff offers comprehensive individual care and expertise in carrying out your physician's orders in the administration of chemotherapy treatments, infusions and cancer symptom management.
Our patient service representatives can schedule follow-up appointments and assist in coordination of your other appointments.
- Chemotherapy infusions and injections
- Blood transfusions
- Hydration treatments - hydration therapy through an IV line allows the patient to receive necessary fluids faster than by drinking them. With this treatment, a patient is given an IV solution of sterile water with a small amount of sodium (salt) or dextrose (sugar).
- Antibiotic treatments - Sometimes antibiotics taken orally prove ineffective so a physician may choose to administer antibiotics intravenously.
- Port/central line flushes
- Bone marrow biopsies
