Central Venous Catheters FAQs

What is a central venous catheter (CVC)?

CVCs are catheters placed centrally, with the tip of the catheter located in the lower third of the superior vena cava (SVC). CVCs can remain in situ for less than 30 days and are used mostly in acute/emergent settings to administer bloodstream medication or fluids, obtain blood tests, and measure central venous pressure.

CVCs are most commonly inserted in an X-ray room by a radiologists, specially-trained nurses, and technologists.

What is the difference between non-tunneled and tunneled central venous catheters?

Tunneled CVCs are placed under the skin and are meant to be used for a longer duration of time. Non-tunneled catheters are designed to be temporary and may be put into a large vein near your neck, chest, or groin.

What lumen configurations does Health Line offer?

Our ORION™ CVC kits are available in single, double, or triple lumen configurations.

What is included in Health Line’s CVC kits?

All of our CVC kits contain:

  • A central venous catheter
  • Injection cap(s)
  • Guidewire
  • Introducer needle
  • Dilator
  • #11 scalpel
  • Hypodermic needle
  • 10ml syringe
  • 10 ml Raulerson syringe
  • Movable wing

What French sizes does the ORION™ come in?

The single lumen CVC comes in 4Fr, 5Fr, and 6Fr.

The double lumen CVC comes in 4Fr, 5Fr, and 7Fr.

The triple lumen CVC comes in 5Fr and 7Fr.

What insertion site is better, the internal jugular vein (IVJ) or the subclavian vein (SCV)?

Although clinicians may prefer one insertion site over another, studies point to the SCV as a better insertion site. The IVJ insertion site can lead to vein damage or artery puncture.

Overall, the SCV insertion site is associated with more patient comfort, fewer complications, and lower cost. The SCV insertion site also has lower infection rates and is a better option for care and maintenance of the dressing, as well as easier site assessment for the bedside nurse.

Does Health Line recommend the CVC single lumen kits, the CVC double lumen kits, or the CVC triple lumen kits?

It depends on the needs of your patient. CVCs with multiple lumens allow multiple therapies to be infused through only one access site. As with PICC lines, each lumen increases the risk of infection, so the number of lumens is best kept to the minimum required for patient care.

What is the regulatory clearance for Health Line’s ORION™ CVC kits?

Our ORION™ CVC kits have FDA clearance, are ISO certified, and CE marked.
