Catheter occlusion is a growing problem with all types of central venous catheters. Correct assessment of the problem, along with appropriate nursing interventions, can prevent many bad outcomes for your patients. Learn about the many causes of occlusion, proper management of each type of occlusion, and nursing interventions to prevent the problem in the first place.
