“e strongly recommend the use of in-line filters combined with infusion routes after CSTD use to avoid contamination-associated adverse events” Sumikawa et al (2022).
“It is necessary to develop training standards for PIVAS staff to improve employee capabilities and job satisfaction” Ni et al (2021).
“Patients are exposed to ethanol during the infusion of antineoplastic drugs” Hiver et al (2021).
“Blood sampling from a cannula in use for intravenous fluids or medications is favourable for majority of parameters of the full blood count and an advantageous alternative for fresh venepuncture bleeding in febrile children” Perera et al (2021).
“We report a novel two-step percutaneous endovascular technique for retrieval of peripherally inserted central catheter, free ends of which were inaccessible, that had embolized to the segmental branch of left pulmonary artery” Sood and Srinivasan (2021).
“This review aims to discuss the particular venous anatomy of the upper body, the physiopathology of superior vena cava obstruction, and specificities of endovascular treatment compared with other management options” Ponti et al (2021).
“Existing tumor, high APACHE II score, elevated D-dimer on the 3rd day after catheterization, and decreased maximum velocity of right internal jugular vein on the 3rd day after catheterization are independent risk factors for central venous CRT in critical patients” Wang et al (2021).
“The middle of 20th century proved to be a golden era for development of disposable medical devices. From steel reusable needles with a stylet in the 1950s to the Angiocath (the first disposable device) in 1964 to polyethylene, polyurethane (plastics) in the 1970s and 1980s, to modern-day catheters made of Teflon and Vialon, peripheral intravascular catheters have evolved” Thakur and Gupta (2022).
“In vitro and in vivo studies have reported that amphotericin B deoxycholate stimulates pro-inflammatory cytokine genes causing IRAEs” Scardina et al (2021).
“Prolonged duration and use of the catheter is significant in terms of bacterial load. The use of TDC as vascular access in renal replacement therapy should be avoided as much as possible” Azboy et al (2021).
“A prospective study was conducted to assess potential invisible blood contamination on nurses’ gloved hands during vascular access procedures using the occult blood detection method in a hemodialysis unit. 60.13% (273/454) of samples tested positive for hemoglobin” Li et al (2021).
“Bedside right internal jugular TDC placement in COVID-19 patients, using ultrasound and anatomic landmarks without fluoroscopic guidance, may potentially reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission among healthcare workers without compromising patient safety or catheter function” Sohail et al (2021).
“In this review article, we not only discuss the basic principles behind the use of HD-CVCs but also address frequently asked questions and myths regarding catheter asepsis, length selection, tip positioning, and flow rate assessment” Sohail et al (2021).
