There recently was a patient on our Med/Surg unit who had a dual lumen Power PICC placed during surgery for TPN & Lipids Infusion. 48 hrs later, his arm was edematous, red & warm. An ultrasound was done on his right arm which yielded the presence of a clot in the Basilic, axillary, & subclavian vein. The anesthesiologist (who inserted the PICC) was notified. He stated that we could continue to use the PICC seeing as though the clot wasn't in the PICC Line. Was his statement correct. Is it recommended to use line especially if it is being used for an infusion of TPN/Lipids?
