“To explore the clinical value of coagulation index changes in early diagnosis and nursing intervention for PICC-related venous thrombosis in tumor patients” Gai and He (2022).
“Sampling from a peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) might be a more efficient and less traumatic collection of blood for serum biochemistry (SB) or CBC than direct venipuncture (DV)” Guarino et al (2022).
“A third of nursing students reported experiencing NSI. Consequently, occupational hazard prevention training and student support measures need to be considered”
“No consensus is available on the prevention of catheter dysfunction or catheter-related bloodstream infections in patients undergoing hemodialysis by means of catheter lock solutions” Wang and Sun (2022).
“CPGs and escalation pathways unanimously recommended use of vessel visualisation technology for patients with or suspected of DIVA” Paterson et al (2022).
“Most fourth thoracic vertebrae were at the same level as the carina on chest radiographs. Therefore, it has potential as a radiographic landmark for the depth of right internal jugular vein catheterization in infants on chest radiograph” Liu et al (2022).
“In the process of clinical teaching, we found that nursing interns generally felt vague about the injection site and were afraid of damaging nerve branches, which led to the inability to grasp the main points of intramuscular injection in the process of practice” Wang et al (2022).
“The primary outcome was the incidence of phlebitis, and secondary outcomes included the risks of occlusion, local infection, infiltration, catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI), and accidental removal of the PIVC” Chen et al (2022).
“We experienced bedside insertion of a PICC into a patient with BMI of 84.8 kg/m2 patient using a Sherlock 3CG® TCS” Uchida et al (2022).
“Multivariate regression analysis showed the presence of an intravenous line (p = .039), urinary catheter (p = .031), being female (p = .034), or being dependent on others for walking (p = .016) to be positively associated with the time spent in bed” Valkenet et al (2022).
“The MUPC ketamine team has proved that ketamine infusions may provide a unique intervention safely and efficaciously without the need for collaboration with other medical specialties since initiating this pilot program” Ithman et al (2022).
“Despite widespread use of VADs in the inpatient setting, the procedure coding rate was found to be remarkably low” DeBoer and Alsbrooks (2022).
