Cystic fibrosis is the most common hereditary disease and about 1270 patients in Belgium suffer from it. Abnormally viscous mucous membrane clogs the airways and the digestive system, which causes frequent bacterial infections.
Because of the frequent intravenous antibiotic treatments, those patients often stay at the hospital. To improve their quality of life, Remedus wants to ensure that those patients can receive the necessary treatment in their own environment. Our services include:
- Providing the necessary material and equipment for home treatment with intravenous antibiotics
- Teaching the patient or the home nurse to administer intravenous antibiotics with the help of a pump or gravity
- Taking blood samples within the scope of specific antibiotic treatments and care of the catheter
- After the intravenous course of antibiotics, a further follow-up of the medication intake and a number of vital parameters (oxygen saturation and lung capacity)
