PICC (Child) [Chinese - Traditional] Permalink Public

A PICC is used in some children who need IV therapy for a long period of time. IV therapy means medicine that is put into the vein. Frequent needle insertions can be painful and can damage children's veins, so a PICC may be the best way for some children to receive medicines and IV fluids or to have blood samples taken. An interventional radiologist or a nurse will insert your child's PICC in the Image Guided Therapy (IGT) department. An interventional radiologist is a doctor who use special viewing equipment such as X-rays, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scans to perform procedures that may have required traditional surgery in the past. Audio available. (Chinese - Traditional)
