Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Catheter pinch-off syndrome is an uncommon and often unrecognized complication of central venous catheters. The cause, clinical diagnosis, and management of this unique catheter occlusion are reviewed. Nurses can play a key role in the early detection of catheter pinch-off syndrome as well as the prevention of subsequent catheter fracture and embolization.
