I am finding I do better inserting Picc's using no needle guide, just a #20 angiocath and the U/S screen. I feel as though when I use the silver needle in the microintroducer kits my wire can get hung up. I go through the vein and slowly pull back until the blood flows through the angio. I usually try to angle down the angio as I slowly pull back, something I can"t do with the steel needle as well. Any thoughts on this technique? What ways do the more experienced Picc nurses think is the best? I am still learning!
