picc algorithm?
Does anyone have a good resource for medical staff as to when they should be looking to place a picc line?  Maybe an algorithm?

BARD has a good poster for

BARD has a good poster for it.  Our company uses INS for guidelines.  Short info for everyone:

PIVs- last up to three days, for fluids resus, meds, antibiotics, blood products and place as needed and in emergencies .

Midlines- lasts up to a month in our facility, for non-vesicant meds, blood products, good stable line for sedation needs for burn tubbing/dressing changes, no consent needed and no chest xrays for confirmation

PICCs- less risky than temporary CVLs, need consent, require chest xray for confirmation, better than under fluoroscopy or if you have a sonosyte to guide placement of it, for vesicants (PCN, TPN/IL, Vanc, meds with pH of less than 5 and greater than 9 and osM dependent), can lasts up to a year versus tem lines that lasts 2 weeks to  months (depending on indiv hospital policies)

CVLs- done as emergency needed line, came as PICC line but site location is ofcourse different.

Thanks,

Joel
