We have been a picc team almost 2 years. We use the Sherlock to help position into the SVC. My question is: If the CXR shows the picc tip overlies the R atrium and using theÂ CXR to measure how far back to pull the picc to the atrial/caval junction. After pulling back the picc do you f/u with another CXR? It seems to me that if you measure correctly then it reasons to stand that the picc tip will be at the point that you measured and a f/u CXR is redundant.
What are your thoughts?
