Thrombolysis patients are often treated with heparin and/or tPA through the sheath post procedure. If your organization does thrombolysis, does nursing transduce the sheath post procedure? Is this also true when continuous infusions of heparin/tPA are infusing in the line? Do you have a policy you can share? Any literature to support your decision? I have not been able to find any literature for this specific patient population. Thanks.
