I see a lot of past activity adressing Midlines, blood draws and therapeutic phlebotomy. I was asked by our Infusion Department team about performing a therapeutic phlebotomy from a Powerglide Midline specifically. The patient apparently has not other viable access options. They state they have been doing this for this person and occasionally find the blood too viscous to drain by gravity. Wondering if they can use a syringe..
I am having trougle locating INS or other guidance specifically regarding the Powerglide.
1) Is it a viable option
2) thoughts on syringe removal.
