Procedure Kit/Trays, Catheterization, Intravenous, Central Vein

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for the insertion of a catheter whose tip will reach the central venous system. The catheters are usually inserted into a large vein in the neck (internal or external jugular vein), chest (subclavian vein), or groin (femoral vein). Items in these kits may include gauge needles, sterile gloves, appropriate intravenous (IV) catheters, alcohol swabs, gauze pads, IV bags with solution, and tubing. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Central intravenous catheterization procedure kits and trays are intended for use during a variety of procedures, including the administration of fluids (e.g., medication, parenteral feeding), to perform central venous pressure measurements, and/or for other blood tests. They are used in hospitals (e.g., intensive and emergency care) and other healthcare facilities.
