Iron Infusion Gold Coast


What to expect during your appointment: 
(1) Dr Aung Thant will consult and consent you regarding the iron infusion, and ensure that you are aware of the risks vs benefits of iron infusions.
(2) It is preferable to bring the IV-iron to your appointment. You will need to get a script from your GP and fill it at a pharmacy: Ferinject (ferric carboxymaltose) 500mg x2.
(3) Alternatively, you can get the script from our doctor here on the day of your appointment and fill it at the Chempro Chemist next door.
(4) You will then be taken to the treatment room. The iron infusion should take around 15 minutes. The dose of Ferinject given will depend on your weight and severity of iron deficiency. Your vital signs and blood pressure will be checked during the infusion.
(5) For your safety, you should stay in the waiting room for a further 30 minutes. This is because a delayed allergic reaction can occur up to 30 minutes after an iron infusion. In total, you should expect to be in Chevron Island for 60 minutes.
(6) Blood tests are usually checked again 6 weeks after the iron infusion. The results can be copied to your regular GP.
