Device: Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters
Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs) are a form of central access that can dwell in a patient for an extended period of time. PICCs are commonly used for the infusion of TPN, antibiotics, and chemotherapy. A PICC is usually the catheter of choice when a patient needs prolonged IV antibiotic treatment in the home setting. Additionally, accurate location of the catheter tip at the CAJ is recommended. How does a clinician assess a patient for a PICC line versus another type of central access?
