Drawing blood samples from picc line

Recommended Posts

We practically only use our PICC lines for parenteral nutrition. The small diameter (28G) only makes it possible to infuse only.

When i was in troubles I did blood samples through 24G lines. Then I washed with 2 U of heparin/ml saline. Never used for any transfusion.
