Accreditation Check:

A central vascular access device (CVAD) is commonly placed for patients who require weeks or months of infusion therapy. The most common type of CVAD is the peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC). Other types of CVADs include subcutaneously tunneled catheters, which are more common for very long courses of infusion therapy such as parenteral nutrition, and nontunneled CVADs, which are less often seen in home care. The implanted vascular port is another type of CVAD but is not addressed in this module. CVADs require routine assessment, removal of the dressing, skin antisepsis (i.e., site care), and dressing replacement. CVADs also require routine flushing and locking to maintain catheter patency. For some patients, blood may be withdrawn for laboratory studies. In this training, we'll review the equipment and procedures for routine site care of CVADs, as well as procedures for maintaining CVAD patency.
