Iron Infusions

By |2019-08-13T19:11:21+10:00August 16th, 2017|

Yarra Medical is now performing iron infusions. Iron infusions are recommended in the following situations:

  • The person is iron deficient, meaning that a blood test has shown that the person has abnormally low iron stores. Anaemia (low haemoglobin) may also be present
  • Oral iron supplements (tablets or liquid) have been ineffective, have caused unpleasant side effects, or are not recommended due to the person’s circumstances

The infusion takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and the procedure from beginning to end will take about 30-40 minutes.
