This article describes the authors' experiences with using polyurethane percutaneously inserted central catheters from June 1993, when these catheters were introduced in the NICU at Children's Hospital, Omaha, Nebraska, through September 1997.

Line cares, including dressing changes, management of infusions, and troubleshooting, are also discussed.
