A patient's guide to Central Line Catheters

Catheter information was collated by Dr. Mars Mallari, MD of Stanford Hospital's Cancer Center, to help patients better understand catheters and how to care for them. It is an excellent reference for central line or venous catheters, and covers types, maintenance, insertion sites, etc. Some of the topics in Catheter include:

▪Types of central catheters
▪Insertion sites
▪Catheter maintenance
▪Infection control
▪Catheter removal

Catheter is a wonderful source of information for patients on central line catheters.

For medical professionals it is recommended to use Catheter Pro, which was also developed by Dr. M. Mallari of Stanford and is a complete reference guide for Central Line Catheter Care. It has lots of detailed information for professionals that is not contained in this app and covers all aspects of Venous Catheter Care for professionals.
