Reflex Sympathetic Dystropy

I came across a patient with RSD  and seiuzure disorder who has a nerve stimulator in her right arm. She currnetly has an IV in that arm and the left arm is totally beaten up and unusable. Can anyone offer input on this. I really want to take out the right arm IV. Should we avoid that arm for venipucnture? Can we PICC her on the other side?
