I was wondering if anyone could share their flushing guidelines for neonates?
A set of guidelines on Flushing and locking all types of catheters is avaialble for purchase from www.ins1.org. There is a separate card on infants and neonates written by a committee of nurses working with this age group. Lynn

I would also consider the PEDIVAN guideline....can link through AVA website for more information or just search PEDIVAN.
