At-home infusion for pregnant women with morning sickness

Kusunoki Ladies Clinic Kitasenju provides at-home infusion treatment for pregnant women with morning sickness.  Morning sickness is experienced by most pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. Symptoms range from a slight loss of appetite to a complete inability to take fluids or food by mouth. Morning sickness improves spontaneously as the pregnancy weeks progress, so you basically have to wait until you recover. In the meantime, to prevent it from getting worse and causing you to dehydrate, the hospital or clinic will administer fluids, intravenous vitamins, and an anti-nausea drip.

There are currently two ways to provide intravenous infusions;
(1) Outpatient infusion: Patients go back home after receiving an infusion at the clinic where they are visiting. If the condition worsens, the patient can return to the clinic for another infusion.
(2) Inpatient infusion: You are hospitalized and given an infusion until you are able to eat (from one week to one month in some cases).

However, there are many people who find it inconvenient to go to the clinic for morning sickness and hospitalization is not an option for them. Therefore, we offer following  service
(3) At-home infusion: A visiting nurse visits the patient's home to provide an intravenous infusion under the direction of a physician.

Here are some comments we have received from our patients
"I want an intravenous infusion, but it is hard for me to go to clinic by myself."
"My clinic is too far away, so it's hard for me to go."
"My family is too busy to take me to the clinic"
"I would like to be hospitalized if I could, but I have older children and an elderly family member, so hospitalization is not an option."
"I am worried about COVID-19 infection, so I don't want to stay in the hospital as much as possible."


On the patient's expense cost, the outpatient infusion is the cheapest (approximately 1,000 yen per visit), but the body burden (hospital visit burden) is the greatest. 

In contrast, hospitalized infusion is the easiest for patients to bear, but the most expensive option (approximately 10,000 yen per day).
At-home infusion is considered to be a style taking the best of both.

Patient`s expense may change depending on the hospital, insurance and high-cost medical care benefit system.
