“Arterial puncture with a small “finder” needle is usually benign and occurs in up to 11% of cases of IJV cannulation” Arora and Lee (2022).
“We report the first clinical diagnostic study of this scale in a “real-world” setting with a crossover design, comparing two automatic blood culture incubators using samples from patients with a suspected diagnosis of bacteremia/sepsis, as opposed to spiked vials” Halperin et al (2022).
“After a task trainer has been used to practice a procedure, such as intraosseous line placement, the tissue media, molds, and bones are reclaimable and may be reused to create a fresh task trainer, free of puncture sites and manipulation defects, for use in subsequent training sessions” Markin et al (2022).
“The developed pack appears to be a promising device that can assist healthcare professionals in providing efficient and safe care to patients requiring a PIVC” Santos-Costa et al (2022).
“Female and hypertensive patients are considerably at higher risk of catheter thrombosis, whereas diabetes is the most critical risk factor for infectious catheter dysfunction” Mohazzab et al (2022).
“This report is the first documented intraoperative ultrasound video demonstrating accidental and simultaneous common carotid artery and internal jugular cannulation during central line placement in the internal jugular vein” Mittal et al (2022).
“Homemade ultrasound phantoms are cost effective, increase confidence, and improve emergency medicine residents’ ability to perform ultrasound-guided vein cannulation” Sabak et al (2022).
“This study was designed to detect the prevalence of antibiotic and antiseptic resistance genes, mecA and qacA/B in coagulase negative Staphylococcus (CoNS) species isolated from intensive care unit patients with catheter related blood stream infections (CRBSI) or colonized central venous catheters (CVC)” Medis et al (2022).
“We present the case of a 2-week-old neonate, admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) due to suspected meningitis, who received acyclovir through IO infusion after the venous access was lost and a new one could not be established” De Marca et al (2022).
“We show that US-guided durable tunneled femoral central venous catheter (TF-CVC) insertion by an intensivist at the bedside is a technically feasible and safe prolonged central venous access option in critically ill, high-risk infants and neonates in the PCICU” Shostak et al (2022).
“The ultrasound-guided implantation of an 18G LPC in COVID19 patients, regardless of the state of their venous heritage, would seem to be an excellent strategy for these patients, reducing the number of venipunctures and CVC implantation, as well as allowing multiple and high pressure (contrast) infusions” Gilardi et al (2022).
“Placement of ports via the internal jugular vein under ultrasound and fluoroscopy guidance is a safe procedure, with low rates of early and late complications” Kartsouni et al (2022).
“In this study, use of taurolidine as CLS was generally safe. Most reported AEs were vascular access device-related, and the majority of symptoms concerned pain” Korzilius et al (2022).
“Smart glasses act as a suitable simulation tool for endotracheal intubation and central venous catheterization procedures training in medical students” Lin et al (2022).
“Achieving adequate hemostasis after removing the catheter was difficult, and a hematoma formed after the placement of an infraclavicular axillary venous catheter under ultrasound guidance” Noguchi et al (2022).
“Compared to general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation, procedural sedation using propofol and S(+)-ketamine improves the postoperative emergence agitation right after the recovery of consciousness, and has advantage in shortening anesthetic recovery time for pediatric patients undergoing TIVAP implantation” Zhang et al (2022).
“Inadvertently mispositioned catheter emphasizes the significance of ultrasound-guided central vein catheterization even if the cannulation is done using standard anatomical landmarks” Vadi (2022).
“Patients hospitalized for COVID-19 have a significantly higher CLABSI rate, particularly in the ICU setting. Reasons for this increase are likely multifactorial, including both patient-specific and process-related issues” Ben-Aderet et al (2022).
“Our results show that this three-drug mixture is chemically stable for up to 24 hours after mixing, with a pharmacokinetic simulation illustrating safe, clinically useful predicted plasma concentrations when using the described admixture” Carpenter et al (2022).
