Mount medical Clinic offers IRON INFUSIONS for our patients in Melbourne

Did you know Iron is essential for the body to make haemoglobin (Hb), a pigment that makes red blood cells red. When the amount of iron in the body gets too low, the haemoglobin level falls below normal. This is known as ‘iron deficiency anaemia’.

WHY IS IRON IMPORTANT TO THE BODY?

Haemoglobin is essential to a healthy body as it carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. If your haemoglobin or iron levels are low this may make you feel tired and may prevent you from carrying out your normal daily routine.

WHY MIGHT I NEED AN IV IRON INFUSION?

Clinically, the most common way to treat iron deficiency anaemia is to take iron orally as a tablet or liquid. This is the traditional approach and works well for most people so it is usually tried first.  However, sometimes this approach may not be suitable for the Patient particularly if

  • The Patient is unable to tolerate iron taken orally
  • The Patient is unable to absorb iron through the stomach and digestive system
  • The Patient suffers from constipation (often a side effect from oral Iron supplementation)

In such situations an IV Iron Infusion may be the best treatment to restore normal Iron levels in the Patient.

BEFORE YOU HAVE AN IV IRON INFUSION THE PATIENT WILL NEED TO

  • Have a Consultation with the Doctor. During this consultation, the Doctor will discuss with you about medical history, review all the medications and review any previous treatment for Iron deficiency. In addition the Doctor will cover any possible side effects of Iron treatments (oral and IV Iron Infusion).
  • Have blood tests to evaluate the current levels of Iron.
  • Schedule the IV Iron Infusion with the Doctor (if such a treatment is deemed appropriate).

ON THE DAY OF THE IV IRON INFUSION, THE PATIENT SHOULD

  • Have their breakfast/lunch as normal
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Take their regular medications as normal
  • Allow 20 to 30 minutes for the IV Iron Infusion.

After the treatment we ask the patient wait at the Clinic for a further 30 minutes to ensure that there are no major side effects. (On the day please allow for 1 hour for the whole treatment process).

After the treatment the Patient will be able to drive home and/or continue with their normal daily activities.

Statement from the Chief Medical Officer

Influenza seasons and severity are unpredictable.  However, what we do know is that vaccination is the most important measure we have to prevent influenza and its complications.

It important to get the flu shot each year, as the virus changes each year. In addition we know that the protection provided by the previous year’s vaccine diminishes over time.

For more information about the influenza vaccine, speak to your GP or other immunisation provider or visit www.health.gov.au/immunisation

We invest in a state of the art “MoleMax scanner” to detect and diagnose skin cancers.

The MoleMax scanner allows a very high level of magnification with special light frequencies to let our doctors study the structure of the skin. The cutting-edge technology allows even earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Importantly, the MoleMax computer stores all images of moles and lesions for future baseline comparison.

Early detection of skin cancer can often be treated successfully. It is important to get to know your skin and what is normal for you so changes will be noticed quickly.

Skin cancer is often visible making it easier to detect in the early stages.

Annual skin checks are a great way to detect changes. We check your skin thoroughly, not just commonly exposed areas.

What is GP Shared Care?

Eastern Health Maternity Service offers a model of care in which you may choose an Eastern Health accredited General Practitioner (GP) who will provide your antenatal care during pregnancy. As an adjunct to the care your GP provides, you will also have a minimum of 3 antenatal appointments at the hospital with a midwife. You may also see a doctor when you attend the hospital.

Research indicates having a well-known carer during pregnancy results in less hospital admissions, reduced risk of interventions in labour and birth as well as higher breastfeeding rates and women being more satisfied with their childbearing experience.

Dr Bandula Rathnayake (Female GP) is an accredited GP who will provide your antenatal care during pregnancy.
