Does EKG-Guided Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter Insertion Reduce Risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Background: The position of the tip of a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) is associated with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Optimal position of the tip is the cavoatrial junction; more proximal tip positions are associated [...]
