Picc Line Declot / Removal

Epicc Vascular has achieved over 90% success rate in catheter declotting, which is the best rate in the industry. The recommended method for declotting a PICC Line is based on the type of catheter occlusion; There are two types, complete occlusion and partial occlusion.

A catheter that has no blood return and allows infusion is a partially occluded catheter. A catheter that has no blood return and does not allow infusion is a complete occlusion. A partial occlusion can be resolved with a direct instillation of Activase.

This method can be repeated twice. When the occlusion is not resolved after a second attempt, the catheter must be replaced or removed. Declot of a midline is not recommended. All catheter declots should only be attempted by nurses who have completed a certification course due to the risk of bactermia.

Not all Picc Line company’s are equal, while it may be profitable for these company’s to purchase the lowest priced Picc Lines on the market. A substandard Picc Line increases the likelihood of clotting, DVT’s, and possible infections. When a Picc Line malfunctions, you have no choice but to call and absorb additional costs to declot or replace the line. This is not good for the facility or for the patient.
