Learn more about central lines from Capra Dalton, RN at Pedagogy Incorporated

Current Practices in the Management of Central Lines, Capra Dalton RN, CEO, Pedagogy Incorporated:"This instructional course has been designed to provide current conceptual and operational knowledge to the licensed nurse responsible for the care of patients with central venous access devices. Ever changing technologies and the evolution of the licensed nurse’s role in the management of central lines requires up to date knowledge of changes in techniques, equipment and devices in use today. This course contains current practices for best patient outcomes and provides 5.0 contact hours of continuing education. Many State Boards of Nursing require that the LPN/LVN have additional infusion therapy education after licensure. A link to each state board of nursing’s requirements for the LPN/LVN to manage infusion therapy and central venous catheters, within that state are listed here. Competency requirements are obtained and maintained through the nurse’s employer, facility or institution."

Groshong, Bard Access Systems:"The Groshong line of central venous catheters offers the latest in technology. Unlike traditional open-ended catheters, the Groshong catheter has a rounded, closed tip and features the patented Groshong valve. The Groshong valve opens inward for blood aspiration and outward for infusion but remains closed when not in use. Because the valve remains closed when not in use, it literally seals the fluid inside the catheter and prevents it from coming in contact with the patient's blood. Thus, weekly flushing with saline is all that is required to keep the catheter patent. The valve also eliminates the need for routine clamping of the catheter. The Groshong catheter increases patient safety, reduces maintenance and provides the patient with an overall better quality of life."

Midlines, Bard Access Systems:"New color-coded hubs mean greater safety and less confusion. When you need a midline catheter for intermediate-term therapies, Bard Access Systems is making a noticeable difference. And that difference is in the hubs. A unique system of color-coding Groshong and Per-Q-Cath midlines readily identifies the type of catheter before, during and after use. This innovation, while simple, differentiates our midlines from PICC's, which in turn helps eliminate confusion and promotes patient safety."

A five minute preview is available as a streaming video presentation. The preview features Dr. Walter Scott of FDA discussing catheter tip location. This program follows "a day in the life" of two residents as they deal with the complications associated with the use of central venous catheters (CVCs). Surgical landmarks and underlying anatomy for CVC placement are reviewed. While assessing specific patient needs, they discuss catheter selection; patient preparation and positioning; vein vs. artery differentiation; and EKG monitoring. Radiology and pathology case reviews are presented. The importance of infection control and peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) use is presented, with a final note on home care."

Catheter, central venous, Medicinenet.com: A catheter (tube) that is passed through a vein to end up in the thoracic (chest) portion of the vena cava (the large vein returning blood to the heart) or in the right atrium of the heart. Central venous catheters have a number of different uses. A central venous catheter allows concentrated solutions to be infused with less risk of complications. It permits monitoring of special blood pressures including the central venous pressure, the pulmonary artery pressure, and the pulmonary capillary wedge pressures. A central venous catheter can be used for the estimation of cardiac output and vascular resistance. The near end of the catheter may also be connected to a chamber for injections given over periods of months. A central venous catheter saves having to have frequent small injections or "drips" placed."

Central Venous Catheters, What is a central venous catheter? Webmd.com:"A central venous catheter, or vascular access device (VAD), is a long, thin, flexible tube used to give medications, fluids, nutrients, or blood products over a long period of time, usually several weeks or more. The catheter is inserted through the skin into a vein often in the neck or chest. It is threaded through the vein until it reaches a large vein near the heart called the superior vena cava."
