PICC Peripherally Inserted Central Venous Catheter
There are a number of procedures you may require over the course of your treatment. One of them is a Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter or PICC for short. It's a long, flexible tube used to deliver fluids andor medication into your body through a vein in your arm. Using a needle and local anesthetic, a radiologist or certified nurse will insert a thin wire to guide the catheter into a large vein leading to your heart. Once inserted, the PICC catheter will allow direct delivery of medication or fluids for several weeks without having to use a needle or IV each time.
Regular care must be taken to ensure the catheter is working correctly and the dressings remain dry and clean. For example, PICC catheters require a flush of saline or other fluids at least once a week to ensure proper flow. Your nursing team will show you how this simple procedure is done. When no longer required, the PICC can be easily removed, usually by your nurse after the last of your medication has been delivered. To learn more about the daytoday care of your PICC catheter, consult your nurse or a member of our care team.
PortaCath Implanted Vascular Access Device
Sometimes it makes sense to use a vascular access device a small port and catheter that allows medication to be administered directly into a large central vein. Using local anesthetic, and guided by ultrasound and xray, a radiologist will insert the thin flexible tube into a large blood vessel leading to your heart. The port itself is generally placed on your upper chest, just beneath your skin. The procedure is easily performed with minimal risk and pain. When the procedure is over, medication or intravenous fluids can be administered without the discomfort of multiple needle pokes.
Ouchless IV Starts at St. Louis Childrens Hospital
Most of the kids come here to our Ambulatory Procedure Center, they're getting sedated for tests MRIs, CT scans, a lot of radiology tests. When Laura first came in, we really just kind of give her an overview of how the day's going to go. We let them know upfront that they are going to need an IV start. We make it a practice to be very honest. Hi Laura. My name is Joyce. I'm a Child Life Specialist. I'm here to tell you all about your IV start that we have to do right now.
We incorporate our Child Life Specialists who can explain the procedure, lets the kids play with all the equipment beforehand. Knowledge is a good thing and the more they know about what we're going to do the less afraid they are when we actually it's time to get the IV started. It's really important that the parents just stay really calm and kind of act like this isn't a big deal. If parents come through the door nervous, the children come through the door nervous. IVs are intimidating for kids because nobody really likes needles.
Everyone's afraid of needles, even adults. So we've tried to come up with a way so it's less intimidating and less painful. This is our cold washcloth, okay It's just going to clean your hand up a little bit. Just relax your hand. There's two types of kids. Some are watchers and no matter how much distraction you do they're still going to watch and they do better. And some kids don't want to watch at all and that's when the iPads and the games and the toys come in handy.
123 big blow. Little stick. 123. Good job. Alright so you get to choose. Alright now this should be all numb. You ready Big deep breaths on 3. 123. In. One of the big bonuses for coming to a children's hospital for these kinds of treatments, is all our equipment is specially made just for pediatric patients and everything we do is geared to make their stay or their visit as positive as possible. That's all that's to it. So now you know, you have no more pokes, whenever you need your medicine,.
