OBJECTIVE To evaluate ECG-aided tip localization of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) in the patients with cancer. METHODS Between September and December 2014, 170 patients undergoing PICC were divided into observation group and control group (each group with 85 patients). In observation group, patients received ECG-aided tip localization of PICC. In control group, PICC was performed with conventional method. After PICC was performed, all patients took orthophoria chest radiograph… CONTINUE READING
