Training Central Venous Catheter (CVC)

Application of the new dressing

To remember

  • Possible dehiscence of the exit site is closed with perpendicular sterile adhesive tape
  • The adhesive dressing gently compresses the exit site


Air embolisms may occur even hours after CVC removal (no breathing exercises!)

In case of chest pain or dyspnea, place the patient in the Trendelenburg position and call a physician
