CVP readings from PICC lines

Can PICC lines be used to accurately obtain CVP readings?  Are there any articles out there that support/don't support this practice?

One of Marcia Ryder's

One of Marcia Ryder's articles from years ago discussed this. It is possible to get accurate CVP reading from a PICC if there is no integral valve in the PICC. Lynn
