Project Description

The insertion of a PICC line is essential for many cancer patients for the delivery of chemotherapy treatment and they remain in place for up to 18 months. A PICC line is usually inserted into a vein in the patient’s upper arm and is an unpleasant procedure. Without the PICC placement system cancer sufferers, already undergoing a gruelling treatment programme, will need to go to theatre and have the PICC line inserted with an X Ray confirming it is correctly positioned or practitioners go in ‘blind’ with the danger of multiple cannulation attempts. This incredible piece of equipment ensures the PICC line can be accurately inserted at the bedside with no delay to treatment and a vastly improved experience for some of the hospitals’ most vulnerable patients.
