    We draw them from out CVC’s. (Brovuac,Mediport, PICC’s) or if they don’t have access they are drawn peripherally.

    Dear members,
    Please, it is highly appreciated if you can share with me some information about the following practice:
    Do you aspirate PT/PTT/INR levels from polysite or PICC line or central line or you only aspirate them from peripheral sites?
    Thank you!
