PURPOSE: Like all central venous catheters, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) are associated with excess morbidity. This can be minimized by using PICC lines only when absolutely needed (e.g. for Total parenteral nutrition or long-term intravenous medications), using the smallest diameter catheter possible, and using the right brachial vein when possible. We are yet to see standard criteria for PICC line insertion. Previous studies have demonstrated less thrombotic event with single lumen PICC. PICC inserted by nurses have been found to be more cost effective and associated with less risk of infection. Left sided catheters have also been associated with more thrombotic event. We examined the PICC utilization in two community teaching hospitals.
