Antibiotic Infusions

Hydration IV therapy involves the intravenous administration of fluids directly into the bloodstream to replenish and restore hydration levels in the body. It is commonly used to address dehydration caused by various factors such as illness, intense physical activity, or excessive alcohol consumption. The therapy provides a quick and efficient way to deliver fluids, electrolytes, and nutrients directly into the body for rapid rehydration and revitalization.


Let’s consider John’s story. A busy architect from Brisbane, John had been soldiering on through a terrible bout of fever, a persistent cough, and unrelenting chest pain. He dismissed it as a mere cold until his condition deteriorated, and he began coughing up brown sputum.

Previously diagnosed with pneumonia and discharged with oral antibiotics, his condition didn’t improve. That’s when he decided to give Urgent Care Brisbane a shot, in search of a more effective solution

What are IV Antibiotics?

In John’s situation, where oral antibiotics were unable to control his pneumonia, we introduced him to the concept of IV antibiotics. These are powerful medications, administered directly into the bloodstream. Often used in severe cases or when oral antibiotics fall short, IV antibiotics can be a game-changer.

Conditions that Benefit from IV Antibiotics

John’s pneumonia fell into a category of serious conditions that often require IV antibiotics. Other conditions include cellulitis, pyelonephritis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and infections caused by dog or cat bites. These can escalate rapidly if not treated promptly.

How IV Antibiotics Work

Our dedicated team at Urgent Care Brisbane assessed John’s condition and selected the most appropriate IV antibiotic to treat his stubborn pneumonia. Generally, these antibiotics are administered once daily, and the regimen can continue for 2-3 days until the patient is ready to switch to oral antibiotics.
