I’m wondering if anyone would be willing to share their institutions policies on drawing coagulation testing/ factor levels off of a heparinized central line. Currently, our policy is to draw these labs with a peripheral stick. Looking at the literature, it seems like this is kind of a muddy issue.
Any information would be very appreciated!
