PICC-related UEDVT prediction model

“The risk of PICC-related UEDVT can be estimated and predicted relatively accurately by using the method of ML modeling, so as to effectively reduce the incidence of PICC-related UEDVT in the future” Hu et al (2024).

Predicting difficult intravascular access – Full Text

” Ask (about a history of DIVA or IV drug abuse), Feel, and Evaluate BMI. By recognizing patients with DIVA before the first insertion attempt and treating them from the outset with advanced vein visualization techniques, patients with DIVA could be subject to less frequent painful venipunctures, fewer delays in treatment, and a reduction in other DIVA-associated burdens” Bahl et al (2024).

Embolisms caused by central venous catheter thrombus – Full Text

“Here, we report a case of simultaneous coronary and lower limb artery embolism in a PFO patient carrier of a CVC. The patient presented to the hospital with acute chest pain and lower limb fatigue. Doppler ultrasound showed a large thrombus in the right internal jugular vein, precisely at the tip of the CVC” Li et al (2024).

Central line tip misplacement study – Full Text

“In this large prospective multicentre cohort study, performed in the ultrasound-guided era, we demonstrated the incidence of tip misplacements to be 3.7 (3.3-4.1)%. Right internal jugular vein catheterisation had the lowest incidence of both minor and major tip misplacement” Ängeby et al (2024).

Temperature-responsive intravenous needle

“In mice, the needles had similar fluid-delivery performance and caused substantially less inflammation than commercial devices for intravenous access of similar size. We also show that an intravenous needle integrated with a thin-film temperature sensor can monitor core body temperature in mice and detect fluid leakage in porcine tissue ex vivo” Agno et al (2023).

Refeeding syndrome in hospitalized adults

“RFS was common among hospitalized patients receiving PN. The amount of energy delivered on the first day of PN was independently associated with RFS, raising a concern regarding initiation of PN with higher energy” Apiromruck et al (2024).

CVC colonization rate in patients with severe burns

“The CVC colonization rate in patients with severe burns and routine CVC changing was not high. Lengthening the CVC duration might be attempted in patients at a lower risk of catheter-related BSI although further prospective studies are necessary” Jeon et al (2024).
