We recently had a patient who presented with a Power PICC Solo inserted in the left chest, rather close to the breast. Two chest xrays were completed one day apart. The first xray was dictated as a left subclavian central line. The second xray was dictated as a PICC inserted in the left axillary vein. Either way, is this an appropriate insertion point? Our thoughts are that this would be a CVC, bordering on subclavian insertion at the least.
Thank you for any input.
