Central venous catheterization refers to the insertion of a central venous catheter from the vein to the superior and inferior vena cava near the right atrium. It is mainly used for major surgical operations, emergency rescue, parenteral nutrition, and chemotherapy for cancer patients. The common catheterization site is the internal jugular vein , External jugular vein, subclavian vein and femoral vein.
The central venous catheter is generally used in clinical practice for no more than 1 month. In order to avoid adverse complications, the patient should be removed promptly when discharged. Have you paid attention to how to deal with the puncture point after removal?
After removing the central venous catheter, the patient should seal the puncture point for at least 24 hours, and explain to the patient clearly that the dressing covering the puncture point cannot be torn off prematurely to prevent complications after extubation.
