PICC tip malposition discussed in a series of case studies

The discussion of each case illustrates a wide range of potential aberrant PICC tip locations and offers an insight into how the aberrant tip location was resolved in each case” Jackson and Buttle (2016).

Abstract:

This article presents a number of case studies, spanning a 12-month period, associated with peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) tip location. The aim is to generate debate around the journey PICC tips may take; it is not the purpose of this article to debate technological solutions to the issue of PICC tip location. The discussion of each case illustrates a wide range of potential aberrant PICC tip locations and offers an insight into how the aberrant tip location was resolved in each case.
