PICC DVT and preventative anticoagulation

Is anyone using a standarized approach to anticoagulation prophylaxis for prevention of PICC DVT?  There is a drug, Dalteparin, that lists prevention of upper extremity DVT in its indication for use.  Is anyone using this or any other medication with success?
