An x-ray screening room with facility for aseptic procedures or an operating theatre is required. A trained radiographer must be available for x-ray screening throughout the procedure. In addition a minimum of two staff are required for the safe execution of this procedure. One should be a member of medical staff (radiologist/surgeon/anaesthetist/haemato-oncologist) to insert the catheter and administer sedation and antibiotics and the other to generally assist. The second person can be an IV trained nurse.
