The therapy has a range of medical applications including anaesthesia /sedation, post-operative analgesic pain management, chemotherapy and treatment of infectious diseases.

Nine of ten patients admitted in hospitals receive infusion therapy during the course of their stay for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes.

Improper infusion practices may lead to complications, causing an increase in mortality, morbidity, duration of hospital stay and healthcare costs.
