Wound redness and swelling: If there is redness and swelling in the wound, please seek medical treatment in time, change dressing and drainage of the wound every day as instructed by the doctor, and take anti-inflammatory treatment as instructed by the doctor.Fluid transfusion is not smooth: check piping equipment, let the patient move the upper arm and chest to adjust the needle and draw blood.The fibrin sheath was rinsed repeatedly with normal saline.If the catheter is blocked, use urokinase as prescribed.Burning sensation in subcutaneous tissue: stop infusion immediately and inform doctor.Swelling of neck and arms: Seek medical attention immediately and check for thrombosis.Catheter loss or rupture: Seek medical attention immediately and the broken catheter will be removed.How to maintain the infusion port after implantation?Infusion ports, like other central lines, should be flushed with heparin sodium saline after each use to prevent clot formation and catheter blockage.If the patient has not received any infusion therapy for more than 1 month, he/she should go to the hospital once every 28 days.Because the infusion port is a fully implanted intravenous infusion device, the skin is intact and there is no external catheter, so it does not need to change dressings every week.
