Placed a PICC. Patient stated had slight tingling when needle was place and when needle was withdrawn. Then resolved. No symptoms with introducer or PICC insertion. Left the picc in.Â When i next saw him, a day or 2 later. He had a heating pad that was ordered by the doc.Â I assumed possible phlebitis but when I visited him he said he had pain down the arm whenever he moved it.Â I pulled the line and placed a new one. Symptoms resolved right away.Â Then later i was speaking to an expert who said that it was "nerve irritation"(i think) and said that antiinflammatory could have been tried.Â What say you?
