This evening, I interjected on a surgeon asking another physician if an implanted port would be ok for daily parenteral nutrition.
I provided that an implanted port was not the best choice of a life-long daily infusion. And that at tunneled line would be a better choice.
Is this correct? I'm questioning my advice after referencing my new INS manual P. 482 and P. 427.
I didn't get any pt details such as age, activity, or med conditions.
