“Investigation demonstrated a mediastinal hematoma, hemopericardium, and hemothorax from a bleeding mediastinal collateral vessel. To our knowledge, there are no previous reports describing this presentation” Roper et al (2020).
“CVC dysfunction may be associated with a poorer prognosis in pediatric cancer patients. Future studies should corroborate these findings in other populations” Forbrigger et al (2020).
“The three most difficult skills to perform were CPR, reading EKGs and venipuncture/starting intravenous lines” Liou et al (2020).
“We used the New Quality and Quantity Indices in Science platform to analyze global NSI research (n = 2987 articles) over the past 115 years” Groneberg et al (2020).
“Obesity was not associated with increased difficulty in placing peripheral IVs in trauma activation patients. Nurses with greater trauma experience and higher self-competence ratings, had less difficulty inserting IVs” Barksdale et al (2020).
“We performed a retrospective review over a 10-year period to identify port placement in pediatric patients with severe hemophilia” Bedoya et al (2020).
“Catheter-related right atrial thrombosis is an underestimated, severe, and life-threatening complication of any type of central venous catheters” Rossi et al (2020).
“Overall, the program effectively demonstrated a decrease in the number of attempts required to insert a peripheral venous catheter in patients with difficult venous access” Stuckey and Curtis (2019).
“While the overall rates of ICU-associated CVC-BSIs were lower than 2.5/1,000 ICU-CVC-days across all age-ranges, large differences were observed between units, highlighting the importance of a national standardised surveillance system to identify opportunities for improvement” Gerver et al (2020).
“Recognizing the risk factors for catheter-related thrombosis is extremely important to inform the development of catheter care guidelines” Zhou et al (2020).
“Blood sparing policies endorsed umbilical cord blood (here called placental) as an alternative source for laboratory testing. Little is known on the suitability of placental blood to evaluate neonatal hemostasis of newborn infants” Raffaeli et al (2020).
“Anticipating the challenges associated with managing and optimizing patients who refuse blood products allows for more favorable outcomes in the preoperative period” Chae et al (2020).
“This analysis on articles that presented time series relating to blood donations and blood component transfusion showed that aging of the population was the main factor associated with the increasing demand for blood and the decreasing supply of blood” Oliveira and Reis (2020).
“This paper looks at other venous access complications, including blocked and damaged catheters, catheter related thrombosis and CRBSI” Leiberman et al (2020).
