  • CVC Kits are the medium of the placement of a venous catheter in a vein that leads directly to the heart. The main reasons for inserting a central venous catheter are:

    • measurement of central venous pressure (CVP)
    • venous access when no peripheral veins are available
    • administration of vasoactive/inotropic drugs which cannot be given peripherally
    • administration of hypertonic solutions including total parenteral nutrition
    • haemodialysis/plasmapheresis

    Types of central venous catheters
    Catheters are available which differ in length, internal diameter, number of channels (access ports), method of insertion ,material and means of fixation.
    Two useful lengths are 20cm catheters for subclavian and internal jugular lines, and 60cm catheters for femoral and basilic lines
    Methods of insertion:

  • Catheter over guidewire (Seldinger technique)

    • This is the preferred method of insertion. A small diameter needle (18 or 21Ga) is used to find the vein.
    • A guidewire is passed down the dilator into the vein and the needle removed.
    • The guidewire commonly has a flexible J-shaped tip to reduce the risk of vessel perforation and to help negotiate valves in the vein e.g the external jugular vein (EJV).
    • Once the wire is placed in the vein, the catheter is passed over it until positioned in the vein.
    • The wire should not be over-inserted as it may kink, perforate the vessel wall or cause cardiac arrhythmias.
    • This technique allows larger catheters to be placed in the vein after the passage of appropriate dilators along the wire and a small incision in the skin at the point of entry.
