The central venous catheter part 7

Central venous catheter

 

Other key things to remember:

  • Sometimes central venous catheters can become blocked and will need medication to unblock them
  • Make sure the dressing stays dry and in place unless it is being changed by a nurse
  • Take a special care to keep the dressing dry when washing
  • Generally, you should only let the specially trained nephrology staff do anything with your catheter. In an emergency, other healthcare staff may need to use the catheter to get blood samples or to give medications
