PICC is a catheter placement technique that is unfamiliar to many, but familiar to patients who require long-term intravenous fluids and repeated infusions of stimulatory medications. For example, tumor patients need long-term infusion of chemotherapy drugs, repeated venipuncture can easily stimulate blood vessels, cause infusion extravasation, and aggravate the pain of patients. The application of PICC catheter technology can not only save the pain of frequent puncture, but also protect the patient’s blood vessels, without affecting the patient’s daily activities, which is equivalent to providing a “painless infusion” channel for the patient, effectively improving the patient’s quality of life.

As a PICC intubation nurse, how to improve the success rate of intubation, make patients feel comfortable, and provide health guidance for patients after discharge is the direction Sun Guizhen strives every day.
Tumor is a disease that makes people talk about discoloration. Unfortunately, patients with tumors suffer from both physical and psychological torture.

“Every person’s blood vessels are different, and the shape is not the same. Without skilled technology, you can’t puncture at all.” Sun Guizhen said, remembering that when the catheter was first placed, there was no color Doppler and no ECG positioning. Sometimes it is difficult to touch it, but after disinfection, the patient is nervous, and the blood vessels are constricted and can no longer be touched. After placing the tube, it is necessary to take a film to check whether the position of the tube is normal. If it is displaced, it needs to be repeatedly adjusted. Once, she successfully placed the puncture for a patient in the morning, but she could not adjust the normal position. She couldn’t put on the lead coat in the afternoon and then adjusted it into the filming room little by little. Finally, with the assistance of the filming room director, she successfully placed the puncture. enter.

Home maintenance. For the convenience of patients, she organized and established a PICC maintenance health education group, carried out online PICC maintenance at home, and answered patients’ questions in a timely manner. She discloses her phone number and WeChat account, communicates with patients and their families in a timely manner, answers any questions they have, and guides their families to do palliative care for terminally ill patients. She always patiently enlightens patients and comforts them with a warm smile. She always says to patients: “No one knows what tomorrow will be like, let’s live well now and live today…” “It’s no big deal. Sadness is a day, happiness is a day, why don’t we live happily every day?”

In Sun Guizhen’s heart, the needs of patients always come first.

You have to take good care of your family.” Time was running out, and her hurried instructions expressed her nostalgia for her family, but she knew that as a doctor, in the face of the epidemic, more people needed her.
