Preventing Central
Line Bloodstream

What is a central line bloodstream infection? A “central line” is a type of catheter. A catheter is a thin flexible tube that is placed in a large vein to give medications and fluids and to draw blood. It may be left in for several days or several weeks. Some types of catheters may be left in place for even longer (months or years).
