To observe the effect of predictive nursing intervention in preventing complicated phlebitis in colon cancer patients receiving peripherally inserted central catheter. A total of 115 colon cancer patients who underwent peripherally inserted central catheter in our hospital from June 2018 to June 2020 were selected as the study subjects and divided into 2 groups according to the order of admission. 57 cases in the control group received routine nursing intervention. 58 patients in the study group received predictive nursing intervention. The occurrence of phlebitis, the first occurrence time of phlebitis, the average catheterization duration and nursing satisfaction were compared between the two groups. The total incidence of phlebitis was 6.90 % in the study group, which was lower than 21.05 % of the control group, showing statistically significant difference between the groups (p<0.05). The study group had later first occurrence time of phlebitis (p<0.05) and longer average catheterization duration than the control group (p<0.05). The nursing satisfaction was 91.38 % in the study group, which was higher than 77.19 % of the control group, showing statistically significant difference between the groups (p<0.05). Predictive nursing intervention can effectively prevent complicated phlebitis in colon cancer patients receiving peripherally inserted central catheter, delay the occurrence of phlebitis, prolong the average catheterization duration and receive high patient satisfaction.
