Abstract:

About 8% of hospitalized patients require a central venous access device (CVAD): nontunneled central venous catheters (CVCs), including peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), and implanted CVCs, including tunneled catheters and totally implantable venous access devices.1 The choice of CVAD and insertion site is based on the patient’s anatomy, the type and duration of therapy prescribed, infection risk, and other patient factors. This article is a review for nursing students of the purpose, indications, and nursing considerations for each type of CVAD.
