About our service:
Medical Service provides nursing service solutions for the treatment of PICC LINE.
The private nurse will connect the patient to the pick line in a sterile manner under the most hygienic conditions available, inject the patient with the antibiotic or any other medication required, perform a sterile disconnection and finally rinse with the heparin as usual. It is also possible to change the dressing in the area of origin of the PICC LINE once every 5-7 days as required by the procedure.

It should be noted that companies that provide all the equipment for long-term care at PICC LINE together with the health insurance fund expect the family or any other caregiver to perform this sensitive task. In fact, they pass this medical task on to the family. This requires skill and Yes Medical Service provides skilled, experienced and even some nurses with an intensive care course in order for them to do so.

A little about Pick Line:
PICC LINE (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) This is a catheter that is inserted into a large blood vessel and ends in or near the heart and is inserted for a period of six months or more. There are other catheters in other forms such as HICKMAN, PORT A-CATH and more. This catheter is intended for long-term treatment of substances such as antibiotics, chemotherapy and other treatments that if not injected into a normal vein it would cause inflammation of the vein (flavitis) and lead to destruction of the vein. PICC LINE blood can also be drawn for routine blood tests.

There are guidelines for using a PICC LINE catheter:
Use the system sterile when disconnecting. Full sterility and disinfection with 70% alcohol.
Use of plugs to maintain system tightness. Avoid wetting the system including corks so there are methods and techniques to do this.

Replacement of antibiotic set every 3 days or use of disposable set.
Flushing the system with heparin at the end of each infusion. (Prevent blockage).
Change the dressing in a sterile manner every 5-7 days. With compatible equipment. In case the dressing is wet it should be replaced immediately.

Of course an estimate of the origin of the center should be made to see that it is not contaminated. Bleeding marks should be diagnosed around the drain. An estimate of the skin that is not irritated, redness, discharge, fever or any unusual event.

Complications of PICC LINE catheter:
Catheter blockage resulting from blood clots, medications, minerals and more. Obstruction prevents the passage of the medical material in the canal into the vein. It will also be impossible to pump blood. Prevention of this can be done by rinsing the heparin material. In case of partial blockage it can be treated but with complete blockage the PICC LINE should be removed.

Infection - can be a local infection at the outlet of the catheter or in the canal and can be a systemic (body) infection. Risk factors for this are non-sterile operation with the catheter, multiple catheter connections, feeding on TPN. The signs of infection are fever and chills. In such cases the emergency room should be approached. In acute cases the PICC LINE catheter should be removed and antibiotic treatment should be started.
