  • Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) [English] Public

    A PICC is a soft flexible hollow tube that is inserted into a vein either above or slightly below the elbow with the tip placed into a large central vein. This type of catheter provides greater comfort for the patient, allowing for the delivery of fluid directly into a vein and avoiding repeated needle insertions. This pamphlet provides all the information one will need to manage the care of the catheter. (English)
