Central Venous Access Catheters (CVAC)
What is a Central Venous Access Catheter (CVAC)?
A CVAC is a small tube that is inserted beneath your skin to quickly and easily allow physicians or nurses to draw your blood or give you medication or nutrients. By having a CVAC inserted ahead of time, you can avoid the sometimes painful and annoying process of having needle pricks every time you need an infusion or need to have blood drawn.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all who cared for me when I came in for my port placement procedure. My husband and I were treated professionally and courteously (from check-in to being taken out to my car at discharge), but also with a sense of humor, which made me feel comfortable and cared for (it is true, laughter is the best medicine!). It was so helpful that the entire procedure was explained to us along with visual aids. We now have a better understanding how the port will work for my chemo.
