central venous line

Posted: January 8, 2015

A method of giving IV fluids, blood products and medicines by surgically inserting a catheter into a neck vein that passes into your other large blood vessels. There are many different types of central line catheters that may have multiple ports or lumens. Multiple ports allow more than one IV solution to be given simultaneously. Blood can also be withdrawn from this type of catheter.
