    Sorry, the PICC RN team, not peds surgery would be asked to review 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?
    Thanks
