midline in hosp. pt

 We have been using midline  catheters  and wonder if we should be using them l in  a hospital setting? We do not allow labs to be drawn from them.  We have been using the 5dl or 4 sl  Perq cath and cutting them at 20 cm.

 Is anyone trialing  power injecting through a midline? 

 Can we infuse two  incompatible drugs through a  double lumen midline?

 When we have trouble feeding a line and cannot advance a PICC to svc then  we will cut it short and leave it as a midline. IS anyone Doing this?

thanks
