We hope that it will answer any questions that you may have about your PICC. If you have any further questions please talk to your doctor or nurse. What is a PICC line? A PICC is a long, thin, flexible tube known as a catheter. It is inserted into one of the large veins of the arm near the bend of the elbow.

Infection Control:

Infection Control Guidelines Preventing Infections Associated with Indwelling Intravascular Access Devices:"Many terms have been used to describe intravascular device-associated infections (IVDAI) over the years. The multitude of terms and definitions has led to confusion and difficulty comparing the results of clinical studies and comparing data between hospitals. Contamination of infusate as a cause of IVDAI is exceedingly uncommon today, and for practical purposes definitions that are used for surveillance need not include contaminated infusate. A clinical diagnosis of IVDAI is often very difficult, particularly when immunocompromised patient populations are involved (neutropenic cancer patients, neonates, intensive care unit patients), when blood culture results are limited, or when appropriate cultures of intravascular device (IVD) tips or IVDs have not been obtained."

Picc Lines:"So, you've been told you'll be having a PICC Line inserted. What does it mean? What will it do? How does it work? All sorts of questions, and hopefully, here are some of the answers for you. A PICC is a long, flexible tube that is put into a vein in your arm and threaded up into a large vein just above your heart. It is used for giving fluids or drug treatment into your bloodstream. PICC stands for "Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter"."
