We frequently have patients with temporary jugular catheters for stem cell collection. Once the collection is complete the catheter is removed. Currently have a pt with temp jugular. Tip placement is just above the junction of the jugular and subclavian. Is this catheter OK to use. My feeling is that it is probably ok to use only for cell collection, but absolutely not ok for administration of any medication. What are your thoughts. This patient had cell collection thru triple lumen temp jugular two days before I was consulted. Pt was receiving calcium drip and bolus thru this line (placemnent noted above). I am not comfortable giving any meds with this placement.
