Central venous access is desirable for frequent blood draws, the administration of some medications, and/or nutrients. Formerly available only in a hospital setting, CDI Vascular Care provides access to these advanced procedures in a comfortable, outpatient setting.
With the use of advanced imaging technologies including ultrasound and real time X-ray, we place a central line beneath your skin and into your vein allowing for a simple, effective, pain-free way to draw your blood. Some medications are harmful to your vein walls, central access allows for the medication to be given without harming the vein. Common central lines are called PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) lines, CVAC (central venous access catheter) and tunneled and non-tunneled lines.
Central lines are often recommended for patients who regularly have:
- Chemotherapy treatments for oncology patients
- Infusions of antibiotics or other medications
- Nutritional supplements
Chest and Arm Ports
We use advanced imaging technologies including ultrasound and real time X-ray, to safely and accurately place long term venous access ports. Chest and arm ports, or subcutaneous ports, are implantable devices. These devices can be placed underneath the skin for long-term, intermittent venous access.
