Quick question about central lines......

  1. I'm reading in my book about "Silastic Right Atrial Catheters".

    It all pretty much sounds like a "central line" to me.



    Are silastic right atrial catheters the same thing? If not, then what is the difference? Sorry if this is a dumb question but it doesn't say specifically that this is also a "central line" which is what I call them and I don't want to get confused on the test.

    Thanks,

    Shelley
