Abstract:

Our special babies present unique challenges in vascular access. This presentation will highlight different methods of vascular access in neonates and infants including anatomy, therapy and patient characteristics. This will provide baseline information regarding guidelines for proper placement of umbilical catheters, surgically-inserted, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC), midline and peripheral intravenous catheter. This is essential to building the knowledge base of new nurses and will update advanced neonatal nurses.
