An Infusor System is a small, lightweight, disposable, non-electronic portable device. It contains a balloon pre-filled with your chemotherapy drug that is encased in a plastic bottle. This method of delivery is a convenient way to administer your chemotherapy to avoid long stays in hospital and to keep life as normal as possible for you. In order for you to receive chemotherapy in this way, you will need to have a central catheter placed.
