Canterbury DHB

Context

Referrals

Nurses who work in Interventional Radiology and who have undergone a training programme insert PICC/Midlines. To have a PICC inserted, phone Interventional Radiology on ext. 81082 and discuss with the designated nurse the type of therapy the patient requires so they can advise you about the appropriate catheter to use. In general, double lumen PICC lines should be inserted.

Please ensure placement is verified by X-ray and the medical staff has documented this in the patient notes prior to using this device.
