Pediatric Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) Line

A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line is a thin and soft catheter that is inserted into a vein in the arm, leg or neck. The tip of the catheter is located in a large vein that carries blood into the heart.  A PICC line is used for long-term intravenous (IV) medications or nutrition, or for blood draws.
