Partial occlucion, we use t-PA. Total occlusion, we check an xray to see if any migration occurred and peds surgery sees the patient. IN the future we will educate staff on how to use the stopcock method to unblock the line.

Hello I was wondering what is the protocol at other institutions for trouble shooting slugish or clotted PICC lines? If there is a partially occluded line do you administer lovenox or do you pull the line?
