Outpatient intravenous therapy is growing rapidly because of cost savings and the benefits it brings to patient care. This growth has been made possible by the increasing number of physicians, nurses and pharmacists interested in home and outpatient care. Patients can enjoy the surroundings of their home and loved ones while receiving treatment or even attend daily functions like school or work.
Although some aspects of intravenous therapy are the same in the hospital as on an outpatient basis, there are many differences. Patient needs at home and the absence of medical personnel may result in selection of different medications and require the use of new technology to administer them. Many product and pharmaceutical manufacturers have become aware of the importance of outpatient therapy and are constantly developing new products appropriate for it. New intravenous catheters provide reliable, long-term venous access. New infusion devices can infuse medications at specific rates and intervals. They find it difficult, however, to reach all the varied providers these advances might benefit.
In 1994 our idea of a resource book took place. By calling manufacturers and companies that provided services and products for infusion therapy, we put together the first edition of the OutPatient Intravenous Therapy Source Book OPIT Source Book for short. Each year we update the book with the participating companies and their new products and services. We are now on our 4th edition. Our web site is available for updates as the companies provide us with their new product information. This book has been sent to not only outpatient clinics but also has been requested from hospitals, universities, libraries, and private medical offices.
We welcome companies to join us. Please contact us or go to our information page that explains our requirements for participation.
We hope the OPIT SOURCE BOOK will be helpful to all providers, manufacturers, and suppliers involved in intravenous therapy and that patients, in turn, will benefit through safe and effective infusion therapy care.
We welcome comments and ideas that will make this SOURCE BOOK and web site more useful and effective in the future.
