Abstract

Routine coagulation screening is unreliable if obtained through a previously heparinized central venous catheter. Screening tests were performed on 14 paired peripheral and central venous catheter samples without and with heparinase. The heparinase treated central venous catheter samples correlated well with the peripheral samples and can be used to atraumatically screen for hemostatic abnormalities.
