Central Line TPN Guidelines for Healthcare Professionals and Patients

If you or your loved one requires total parenteral nutrition or TPN for a long period of time, your healthcare provider will order TPN nutrients to be administered through a central line, also known as the central venous catheter (CVC), into your body. A central line or central venous catheter (CVC) is a soft, thin, and flexible hollow tube that is inserted in a large vein, usually the veins located near the neck or chest. Unlike a regular IV tube, a central line tube is much longer and can stay in place for a month to several years. Furthermore, large amounts of fluids can be delivered easily through a central line, which would not be possible through peripheral catheters.
