Description

This program is highly recommended for anyone who cares for or maintains PICCs or any central device. Insertion of a peripherally inserted central catheter is the beginning of patient safety. PICCs must be aseptically cared for and maintained if they are to be used safely throughout the entire prescribed therapy. Also, proper care and maintenance allows for early detection of any complications that may arise. In this program, we discuss, explain and demonstrate various aspects of PICC Care and Maintenance including:

Thorough site assessment
Flushing the PICC
Proper dressing changes
Blood sampling from the PICC
Declotting the PICC
Occlusions
PICC removal

1. Describe procedures for care of the PICC
2. Explain the declotting procedure associated with PICCs
3. Flush a PICC using proper flushing technique
4. Explain the importance of daily site assessment
