Abstract

The placement of peripherally inserted central catheters has grown into one of the most common forms of intravenous access. Although complications associated with peripherally inserted central catheters are low, most healthcare providers will encounter them on a frequent basis. Awareness of these complications will help the clinician manage these issues appropriately.
