Reasons for Procedure
PICC lines may be used if you need:
- Long-term medicine treatment and cannot take medicine by mouth
- Fluids—if you cannot drink enough to stay hydrated
- Calories that you cannot get by eating
- Intravenous (IV) medicine—if arm veins are hard to find or use
Once the PICC line is in, it can be used for weeks to months.
