First of all, we have to learn:

What is a PICC Line?e8143e_100a544307514e17a6dd0e36f496d8f7-300x300.png

  • A PICC line is a tube that a doctor or a nurse inserts into a vein around the elbow. It is long, thin, and hollow.
  • A PICC line is used when one requires chemotherapy, intravenous medication or fluids for a long period. It is also used when one requires frequent blood sampling.
  • To place a PICC line, the doctor threads a line along your arm’s vein until the line on your chest forms a large vein. An anesthetic is given to numb the area. After this, you will have an x-ray. The x-ray is done to check whether it is in the right position.

There are various ways of maintaining a PICC line. A dressing that is changed every week helps to hold the PICC line in place. Also, to reduce the risk of infection, the cap at the end of the line is replaced weekly. The line is regularly flushed to prevent it from blocking.
