Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.
~ John Wayne, Actor
Other than the drama of my veins hiding out from the RN and after 2 sticks she needing to call for an ultrasound assist for my IV (I didn't know they could do that), I now am the proud owner/recipient of the Bard Power Port. Is that like a Power Ranger or something? I mean they can infuse me, transfuse me, draw blood, and so many other things with this new gadget implanted under my skin on my right chest. I wonder if I can hook my new juicer up to it? :-) Oh silly me. I will want to taste the yummy drinks I'm going to create.
The PowerPort* device is a new kind of implantable port for IV therapy treatments. It offers the unique ability to provide access for power-injected Contrast-Enhanced Computer Tomography (CECT) scans. Power-injected CECT scans produce superior images of the body to help the medical team better manage care. With a PowerPort* Implantable Port, I'll be able to receive IV therapy and CECT scans without having to undergo repeated needle-sticks in my arm or wrist veins.
