About this book

Indications for central venous cannulation in critically ill patients have increased dramatically, but central venous access has the drawbacks of morbidity and a scarcity of experienced operators. Ultrasound-guided peripheral venous access offers a solution, in that it reduces morbidity and can be performed by a dedicated nursing team. The aim of this book is to teach the fundamentals of this emerging technique. Advice is provided on choice of materials; maneuvers for positioning of peripherally inserted central venous catheters (PICCs), techniques for evaluation of PICC tip placement; prevention, diagnosis, and management of complications; and organization of a dedicated team within a hospital or a supportive care program. Legal and economic issues are also considered. The book will be of interest to a wide range of professionals, including nutritionists, oncologists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, and radiologists.

Reviews

“Peripherally Inserted Central Venous Catheters constitutes a good reference founded on an evidence-based approach to PICC insertion and management. This multilayered work suits the needs of a variety of different readers. … chapters within this in-depth theoretical yet comprehensive review may offer valuable and practical step-by-step guidance on this interesting topic.” (Massimiliano Meineri, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 62, 2015)

“This book describes the science and practice of a popular tool in the critical care unit, on the medical/surgical floor, and for homecare -- the peripherally inserted central catheter or PICC. ... Any healthcare providers employing vascular access as a part of their scope of activity are an appropriate audience for this book.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
