Hey guys, new to the board and to an ICU experience. Just had a quick q. I heard somebody mention today that their pt had a cordis with a slick. I know a cordis is like a great big central line usually used to administer rapid boluses through and also as a place where a PA cath/transvenous pacer can be inserted through, but what is a slick and what is it used for? Excited to be a part of this board, it looks really cool.
I Thank ya

SLIC stands for single lumen internal catheter. It can be put in at the obturator site of a cordis to measure CVP. Alternately, it can be a reference to a double lumen catheter used to deliver multiple meds.
