Central venous catheters are inserted in hospitals to ease blood sampling and administration of infusion treatments. After the hospital stay, a patient may continue to use the central venous catheter in a home environment. The question addressed by the SBU Enquiry Service is about the risk of adverse events when central venous catheters are used and managed in home healthcare settings. The answer includes all kinds of central venous catheters, but if specific knowledge exists it should specify findings about a new type of central venous catheter, brand named: Altius (Kimal).
