Hello everyone, Newbie here. New to PICCs, but not new to taking care of kids. I just completed a 2 hr marathon where 3 of us got the stuffing kicked out of us by a 2 year old. (BTW, I'm 6'4" 230#) Our PICC service assists the pediatric STAT RN staff when they are requested to place PICC lines. It usually takes 3 of us to hold, administer subtheraputic doses of benzos and analgesics, and stick. I suggest subtheraputic, because time after time we end up using BRUTAINE to just hold these wigglers down and hope for the best. The Peds attending staff are of the opinion that we need to "attempt first, then if necessary, we'll do moderate sedation" to really get them down. In my humble opinion (formulated over the past 25 years of ED, EMS and cath lab experience), this mindset is antiquated and just wrong. What are the rest of you guys doing ? I need ammunition because I'm gearing up for a fight...Thanks.
