Safety IV catheter

This study builds on and is a major contribution to the body of literature on CRBSI prevention in the ICU” Laupland et al (2017).

Extract:

“This study was a major undertaking that involved more than 35,000 central venous catheter (CVC) insertions among more than 25,000 patients admitted to ICUs. The study may be considered to have two key findings. First, the authors were able to successfully demonstrate that their interventions could improve hand hygiene adherence and catheter insertion and management techniques. Second, that these interventions resulted in a reduction in CRBSI. This study builds on and is a major contribution to the body of literature on CRBSI prevention in the ICU.”
