I was just wondering what everyone is doing for PICC flushes. We currently flush every 8 hours, turbulent, with saline only and use 10 mls. AVA and INS do not take a stand that I can find. Articles would be great since we are re-writing our VAD policies. Has anyone seen a firm idea except for the INS cards? Thanks ahead of time!
