A central line, also known as a central venous catheter, is a type of intravenous (IV) catheter placed into a large vein in the body, typically in the neck, chest, or groin. It is used to administer medications, fluids, blood products, or nutrients directly into the bloodstream or to measure certain parameters, such as central venous pressure or central venous oxygen saturation. Central lines are also used for hemodialysis, chemotherapy, and in critical care settings where frequent or rapid access to the bloodstream is needed. They provide a reliable and efficient route for delivering treatments and monitoring patients, but they require careful insertion and maintenance to minimize the risk of complications, such as infection or clotting.
