PICC Placement Services

Coram offers PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) placement coordination for patients on infusion therapy. Our program enables patients to have their PICC lines placed in a Coram infusion suite by an experienced PICC-trained nurse. Both placement and confirmation take place on-site, and infusion therapy can begin right away, without the need for a hospital visit.

3CG® Technology

In select Coram branches, our PICC placement program offers the FDA-approved BARD Access System and the Sherlock 3CG Tip Confirmation System. This technology employs passive magnetic tracking and the patient’s cardiac electrical activity to place the PICC tip and confirm its location without the need for x-ray confirmation. Final tip location is confirmed in “real-time” by an ECG printout and validated by an experienced Coram nurse, enabling infusion therapy to begin immediately.
