IV Lovenox Concentrations

Hello,
Wondering if anyone does IV lovenox at their institution and have information you're willing to share on what concentrations you prepare?
We're a children's hospital and we prepare 20 mG/mL concentration for all IV doses, and for SC doses LESS than 10 mg. We have request from hematology for lower concentrations. While the justification is sound we're struggling with data and even standards of practice in other places.

Thanks.
