    We use both depending on the protocol but seem to be using more tacro for now


    We usually place 3 lumens in the allo patients; but in a little baby we will dose the immunosuppression BID and just do 2 lumens

    Hi APHON friends,

    Does your Institution do continuous Tacrolimus infusions or BID Tacro dosing?
    What type of Central Line do your patients have? How many lumens?
