A port (or port-a-cath) is a small medical appliance that is inserted under the skin to provide central venous access. The port is used to deliver intravenous medications that need to be delivered many times, such as in oncology or hematology.
Advice & Tips:
My port-a-cath has been very finicky. It was at a point that it was requiring cathflo every other month. We have started flushing my port every other week as well as keeping heparin in it. So far it has been working well...fingers crossed!
