Abstract:

There is limited published literature on the use of 8 cm centimetre midlines for vascular access. This clinical audit was undertaken to provide a local evidence base for the insertion of midlines in patients receiving non-vesicant intravenous antibiotic therapy in the community setting over the medium term. The findings show their use has clear advantages for patients and clinicians. Although conducted in the community setting, the audit could be replicated in any community or hospital environment where medium-term intravenous therapy of non-vesicant fluids is administered.
