I know there is a age limit on biodiscs, but our ID team is talking about using them on piccs and umbilical lines. Just wondering if anyone has started this yet? We use the biodiscs on our older chronic kids with CVL's. We haven't had an umbilical line sepsis in one year
We were doing good with central lines , got one infected in the past 7 months, but it is a gut kid that lots of radiographic studies and ID thinks that it may have pushed bacteria out of the gut wall and caused the sepsis since it was ecoli.
