R2 — General Session - Peds: A Proposed Model to Reduce Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICC) Placement in a Single-center, Pediatric CKD/ESRD Population

Tuesday, September 18
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: C171-172
Presentation CE Credits: 1

In 2017, Cincinnati Children's Hospital began a multi-disciplinary project to improve vascular access device selection & placement in all patients in the inpatient setting. Importantly, patients with chronic kidney disease/ end stage renal disease (CKD/ESRD) have lifelong vascular access needs, and have specific vascular access recommendations (including but not limited to avoidance of peripherally inserted central catheters, or PICCs), To address these needs, a multi-disciplinary team was developed to address these vascular access issues for the pediatric CKD/ESRD patient population. This session highlights our center's systematic approach aimed to preserve all current & future vascular access options in ESRD / CKD patients, while balancing quality of life and anxiety surrounding venipuncture.
