DIVA in paediatric intensive care

“We found a low success rate at first attempt and a high proportion of DVA. More nurses and time were employed during cannulation and complications increased if the patient had DVA” de la Vieja-Soriano et al (2022).

Supraclavicular central venous access

“The SC approach can be used as an alternative to the IC technique because of its low access time and high success rate. The SC approach should be more commonly used in day-to-day central venous cannulation” Nazir et al (2022).

Peripheral intravenous catheter documentation

“Given the high rate of PIVC failure and its vast array of consequences, improvement of PIVC documentation of removal reasons is essential to better identify type and incidence of complications and help develop targeted solutions” Bahl et al (2022).

Intraosseous needle placement – Full Text

“Intraosseous (IO) access is critical in resuscitation, providing rapid access when peripheral vascular attempts fail. Unfortunately, misplacement commonly occurs, leading to possible fluid extravasation and tissue necrosis” Kyle et al (2022).

Heparin to saline locks for flushing CVAD – Full Text

“The objectives of this EBP project were 1) to evaluate whether a significant difference in intraluminal occlusion was associated with the change from HS to NS use for locking CVADs in ambulatory oncology care, and 2) to evaluate the effects of peer nurse mentoring on nurses’ and patients’ perspectives about the practice change” Jabaley et al (2022).

Retention of needle fragment – Full Text

“Needle fragments are possible causes of local symptoms among PWIDs. The clinical examination presents a potential risk of needlestick injury to the examiner, especially because patients may not be aware of all needle fragments as some are asymptomatic” Laukkala et al (2022).

Optimal PICC tip position using ECG

“Therefore, the main objective of this study was to evaluate the ratios of different waves in ivECG and body external ECG (exECG) when the correct tip location was confirmed by chest X-ray (CXR)” Lee et al (2022).

VAD placement and bleeding risk

“Thus, the Italian Group of Venous Access Devices (GAVeCeLT) has decided to develop a consensus on the management of antithrombotic treatment and bleeding disorders in patients requiring VADs” Annetta et al (2022).
