We have been placinig Midlines in many Covid positive or PUI . This helps with secure access and also the nurses having to obtain blood for the lab.
What we have found is the pts who are receiving the Remdesivir are having some phlebitis rather quickly . Upon looking the Remdesivir up I find the PH to be listed as 3-4 . Typically that would warrant a PICC line. The current regime is 5 days of therapy with one dose a day.
What kind of experience are you having with this? Are you placing PICC lines on these pts?
Thanks in advance, Gina
