Guide to PICC Lines

A central venous access device (CVAD) or central venous catheter (CVC) is commonly referred to as a central line. A central line is placed into the central venous vasculature and the CVAD tip is placed in the lower third of the superior vena cava or at the cavoatrial junction.

The PICC is a very small gauge catheter (3-6FR), typically 50 to 60 cm in length, inserted percutaneously into an upper extremity vein and then threaded to the superior vena cava (SVC) or cavoatrial junction (CAJ). This type of CVAD is used for short or long-term infusion therapies lasting from 7 days to months. 

PICCs come in a variety of configurations. Multi-lumen, valved, non-valved, distally or proximally valved, power injectable, antimicrobial and antiseptic catheters.  Having manufacturer's directions and details can be a helpful tool in understanding the proper care and maintenance of the catheter being used.
