What Are Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICC)?
Emily Levy founded Mighty Well®, a medical wearables company that transforms the patient experience by providing innovative medical products, digital learning, and a supportive community, after navigating the challenges of living with PICCs (also known as a PICC line). With this in mind, and in collaboration with the Association for Vascular Access®, Mighty Well® has developed the Ultimate Guide to PICCs for Patients and Caregivers as your definitive source for feeling confident with your PICC.
A PICC, sometimes referred to as a PICC Line, is a soft, flexible tube (catheter) inserted into a vein, usually in your upper arm and used to administer intravenous medication, nutritions, and/or fluids.
From personal tips from Emily to learning how to live your best life with a PICC line, the Ultimate Guide to PICCs helps you learn, prepare, and care in easy-to-understand language. See below for a small excerpt from the guide:
