We found that low birth weight and type of central venous catheter were associated with catheter-related bloodstream infection in neonates. In the multivariate analysis, only central venous catheter type (dissected veins, tunneled catheters, and short-term nontunneled catheters) remained significantly associated with catheter-related bloodstream infection.Reference:
