Does anyone have a policy/procedure for ethanol locks in CVLs they are willing to share? I have the Nebraska Medical Center procedure. Looking for more information as we develop our own procedure. Also, I am finding lots of conflicting data on polyurethane catheters, what is the current thinking on the use of ethanol in these? Do we need to just contact each manufacturer individually?
Thank you for any and all responses,
