Is anyone using Saline instead of Heplocks for Central Venous Cath?Â Specifically- Piccs, Broviac?Â
Maria, yes we are using the CLC 2000 valve and have been using only saline for a few years now. If your floor nurses are properly trained any PICC brand or CVC brand can be made saline only. You do not have to have a built in valve.
Yes. We use the Max-Plus and have had no problems on any type of access.
