“IV therapy nurses completed a didactic and hands-on training course where they practiced ultrasound-guided SPC placement techniques on a poultry phantom during simulation, followed by performing ultrasound-guided SPC insertion on patients proctored by an interventional radiology physician” Russell et al (2021).
“Green color exposure with glasses significantly reduced stress and pain during PIC without any adverse effects” Takemura et al (2021).
“Our findings indicated that the risks of thrombosis and phlebitis were significantly higher in peripheral intravenous line group than the central venous group” Ratchagame et al (2021).
“In paired intra-animal post-inoculation comparison made in this limited study, fewer colony forming units of pathogenic bacteria accumulated at the tip of the side-hole-free catheters than at the tips of the catheters which have side holes” Tal et al (2021).
“These results suggest that in individuals with cancer, the use of a CVR ≤45% should be considered to minimise risk of thrombosis” Sharp et al (2021).
“The aim of this review was to perform a critical reappraisal of the real-world evidence supporting administration by prolonged infusion of novel beta-lactams for the management of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative infections” Gatti and Pea (2021).
“Nursing staff reported that they spent less time throughout their shift attending the antibiotic line or pump in patients who were in the CAI arm of the study (p < 0.001)" McCarthy et al (2021).

“Our aim was to determine whether prehospital administration of resuscitative medications via the IO route was associated with lower rates of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survival to hospital discharge than peripheral intravenous (IV) infusion in the setting of OHCA” Hamam et al (2021).
“In this article we review the current state of vascular access practice, present arguments why SDM is necessary in vascular access planning, review barriers and potential solutions to SDM implementation, and discuss future research contingent upon an effective system of physician-patient participative decision making in hemodialysis vascular access practice” Murea et al (2021).
