Central Line Care

Other Specialties

Central Line is a soft tube or catheter which goes into a vein through the skin and allows IV fluid, IV medications or blood to run in and out.  There are different types of central lines, but caring for the central line remains the same.  The area where the central line exits the skin should always have a sterile dressing that is clean, dry, completely covered and taped to the skin.  When the site is cleaned regularly, the number of bacteria on the skin drops, and the risk for infection from the skin is much less.
