Umbilical venous catheter: An umbilical venous catheter (UVC) is a narrow flexible tube that is inserted into the vein of the umbilical cord stump of a newborn infant who weighs less than 1000 grams (~2 pounds) or a full-term or near-term sick infant (e.g. meconium aspiration syndrome or persistant pulmonary hypertension of the newborn). A UVC is used for venous blood sampling, administration of intravenous fluids, drug delivery, and blood transfusions. A UVC is equivalent to a central intravenous line in an adult.
