TRMC offers a very specialized program known as PICC Line Placement and Management. PICC stands for peripherally inserted central catheter. It is a central line inserted in a vein in the upper arm with the tip terminating in a location of the central venous circulation of the chest (superior vena cava). It can be used for blood draws, vesicant drug delivery, nutritional support, and other intravenous fluids. It provides a reliable device to deliver infusates without multiple peripheral restarts. This device is intended for one week to one year of therapy.
