Doctor : hi
how can i help you?
User : ok my dad had a aneurysm last weak and they found out lastnite he had infection but cought in time they said they need to put a line in him what is a line?
User : he had surgery
for what reason did he have the surgery?
User : still has a tube draining out of his head but my question is what is a line?
User : his aneurysm was leaking
then "a line" will mean either a peripheral venous access or a central access to give him antibiotics to combat the infection
the access will be to reach blood stream
to make the antibiotics directly available in the blood
