Curious what other facilities do regarding drawing Coagulations studies off of PICCs/CVCs that have heparin infusing. INS says stopping heparin for 10 min but also states there are great studies on this. What about labs from a line that has TPN infusing through another Lumen? we have lab wanting us to stop the infusion for 15 min, not sure if that is the best either. Thank you!
