Tubing change interval

What is the current practice for tubing changes in the NICU? We currently do a 2 person sterile tubing change for all lines every 24 hours and currently have a zero CLABSI rate. We would like to change to the CDC guidelines of tubing changes every 96 hours. Can you give me good rational for changing every to the 96 hour guidelines?
