A trip to the hospital can place unanticipated pressures on patients and family members. From the challenges of scheduling care, to worry about time away from work and family members, the stress of even a minimal hospital stay can be overwhelming.
With today's active and busy lifestyles, more people desire healthcare that is responsive to their needs. The comprehensive services of Carolina Vascular Wellness facilitate health and well-being with minimal lifestyle disruptions, when PICC,Midline and Peripheral Port insertions are performed in the Cary and Oxford clinics. Our goal is to provide our patients with services which allow them to remain in an environment optimal for a normal, healthy lifestyle throughout their intravenous therapy.
Safe and Pain-Free Alternatives
In addition to the efficient delivery of intravenous therapies, PICC lines and peripheral ports, when used correctly, reduce the pain and scarring of the smaller, often delicate veins of the hands and arms. For patients with compromised IV access or with a history of multiple IV attempts, PICC lines effectively eliminate the tissue damage and pain that can result from frequent or repeated punctures.
Versatility and Mobility
PICC lines and peripheral ports are used in a variety of settings, including hospitals, specialty care facilities or the home. Any treatment requiring an IV, from hydration to antibiotic medication to short-term chemotherapy and blood collection, IV therapies are optimized through the relatively painless insertion of a CVW placed PICC line, midline or peripheral port. In fact, these alternatives to peripheral IVs are well tolerated throughout the course of most therapies, and encourage normal everyday activities (see FAQs for information about physical activity).
For clients undergoing chemotherapy or other extended treatments, small, low profile peripheral ports offer a cosmetic advantage to higher profile ports placed in the chest. Like chest ports, peripheral ports require minimal maintenance and can safely remain in place throughout the entire course of very long-term therapies.
