“Platelet quantity, viscoelastic clot strength, and platelet aggregation response to ADP each decline after infusion through a RIS. Further studies regarding microaggregates and platelet activation are required” Sappenfield et al (2021).
“We evaluated and described results for first episode of paired blood cultures from children with cancer who have a central venous line using retrospective databaseWe evaluated and described results for first episode of paired blood cultures from children with cancer who have a central venous line using retrospective database” Burcham et al (2021).
“We proposed a standardized protocol (S.I.F.: Safe Insertion of Femorally Inserted Central Catheters) consisting of seven strategies that should be part of vascular cannulation and should be adopted during the insertion of femoral venous catheters, aiming to minimize immediate, early and late insertion-related complications” Brescia et al (2021).
“Using a POCT analyser in pre-hospital resuscitation allows rapid detection of pathological acid-base imbalances and potassium concentrations and often leads to specific interventions on scene and could improve the probability of survival” Gruebl et al (2021).
“Regardless of the type of infusion solution or transfusion, the pressure-flow relationship in the catheter was nonlinear and not directly proportional. However, within the clinical pressure range (up to 450 mm Hg), the relationship between the flow rate and pressure in the entire infusion line was almost linear and proportional” Miyoshi et al (2021).
“During the pandemic we observed a substantially higher rate of positive blood cultures with coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) in ICU patients” Erlangga et al (2021).
“In the overall population (N = 34) and an elderly subgroup (n = 21), IV cetirizine was as effective as IV diphenhydramine in preventing infusion reactions (primary outcome) and associated with less sedation at all time points, a shorter infusion center stay, and fewer treatment-related adverse events” Holmes et al (2021).
“The results of this cohort study using a large, prospective surveillance database suggest that replacement of PVCs only when clinically indicated may be associated with an increased risk of PVC-BSI compared with routine replacement” Buetti et al (2021).
