Have a patient that came to our oncology clinic with an infusaport...........said that he only needs flushed every 6 months. Â Is that routine for anyone? Â I haven't worked with infusaports myself, but from what I read, they are like a port-a-cath...............accessed with a non-coring needle and flushed with NS/heparin. Â Can anyone help me out here?
