Tulsa, OK, October 4, 2019 –  Tulsa ER & Hospital is proud to offer a new, revolutionary treatment for postpartum depression. The beneficial drug, Zulresso, is now available at the facility and can relieve women of postpartum depression symptoms in as little as 24 hours. The treatment is given through an IV and must be administered in-house at the facility.

Zulresso helps ease both emotional and physical symptoms of postpartum depression. This treatment helps reduce feelings of hopelessness, rage, anxiousness, or thoughts of harming oneself or one’s baby. Zulresso also alleviates symptoms such as body aches and pains, changes in appetite, and issues sleeping or oversleeping. Over 90 percent of the women whose symptoms decreased with Zulresso still felt better 30 days after the treatment.

Dr. Mark Blubaugh, Medical Director for Tulsa ER & Hospital, states, “A high number of women, 1 in 7, will experience postpartum depression. We are excited to offer Zulresso in our quiet, concierge-style facility which feels much more like home than a larger hospital setting.”

To learn more about Tulsa ER & Hospital’s Zulresso treatment, contact the facility at 918-517-6300.

Tulsa ER & Hospital opened at the end of July and offers emergency care for all ages, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The facility strives for a wait time of 5 minutes or less for patients to be seen. Offering CT, ultrasound, X-ray, and cardiac monitoring, Tulsa ER & Hospital honors all in-network insurance benefits for emergency medical care and does not balance bill for any service received.
