Congratulations on the new AVA certification holders. My PICC trainer received hers in January as well.
It has recently come to my attention that PICCs placed in the brachial vein 2-3 inches proximal to the antecubital fossa can cause a pneumothorax. I was surprised to hear that. I certainly don't want to cause a pneumothorax.
Can anyone share your experiences with this with me, or provide references to sources I can study to ensure my PICCs don't cause pneumothorax.
