We are participating in the

We are participating in the NACHRI study and the children's hospital in our network is a site that does use the Biopatch on all patients with CVCs (PICCs included) in the pediatric hospital.  The limitations are on the neonates that we do not use the Biopatch.

Based on the guidelines and the age range that you are asking about, these patient definitely qualify for using the Biopatch.

Hope this helps.
