“In the COVID-19 cohort, malignancy was associated with CLABSI. Black race, end-stage renal disease, and obesity were associated with blood-culture contamination” Wang et al (2022).
“Using detailed perspectives, in this study, we explored the global VAT landscape, including challenges faced, clinical and clinico-economic impacts of VATs, with emphasis on underresearched facets of VAT initiation, data dissemination, and metrics or benchmarks for VAT success” Morrow et al (2022).
“We highlight literature on OPAT in PWID challenging the notion that PWID cannot be managed with OPAT” Cortes-Penfield et al (2022).
“The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the historical and current use of ORSs and IVFs to maintain fluid balance and combat dehydration from SBS, describe the challenges patients and healthcare providers have been faced with, and provide recommendations for future research to overcome these barriers” Izzo et al (2022).
“Given the low-certainty evidence, we are uncertain whether intermittent locking with heparin results in fewer central venous catheter occlusions than intermittent locking with normal saline in adults” López-Briz et al (2022).
“The position of the TIVAP catheter tip tended to shift to the foot side when the vertical position changed to the decubitus position, with an average displacement of (-9.32 ± 9.36) mm, and the difference had statistical significance (P < 0.0001), while there were no significant differences in gender, age, height, weight, body mass index, and catheter tip position (P > 0.05)” Gong et al (2022).
“We sought to determine whether changing our inpatient OPAT documentation method would improve postdischarge care” Certain et al (2022).
“Here we present the successful endovascular management of an injury to the proximal left common carotid artery following attempted cannulation of the right internal jugular vein” Dagher et al (2022).
“There are many different and various factors associated with higher or lower risk of CVC thrombotic complications, so it could be useful to test the recent risk scores to estimate thrombotic risk in oncological patients in clinical practice” Taglialatela et al (2022).
“In the long-term follow-up, Dacron felt cuff tunneled catheters placed in the subcostal space with a transhepatic approach remained functional for a long time” Onan et al (2022).
“We report a rare case of CVC prior to cardiac surgery, complicated by internal jugular venous dissection” Bansal and Gambino (2022).
“Using a root cause analysis based methodology to examine CVC use in haemodialysis is a novel approach to quality improvement in this area” Balson et al (2022).
“Herein, we retrospectively analyse the long-term outcomes of a cohort of pediatric patients with CIF followed-up since our Pediatric Intestinal Failure Unit foundation, in 1989” Lezo et al (2022).
“Future research should focus on determining the optimal volume of fluid during sepsis resuscitation, the effectiveness of measures of “fluid responsiveness” in improving outcomes, the optimal composition of crystalloid solutions, the role of albumin, and the effects of “deresuscitation” after septic shock” Seitz et al (2022).
“There seems to be a certain proportion of catheters cannulated unnecessarily in Ambulatory Emergency Care, which would justify the implementation of good practice programmes in the assessment and selection of vascular accesses” Ballesteros-Peña et al (2022).
“Multidisciplinary and evidence-based interventions could lead to a decrease in the CLABSI rates. Moreover, the automatic notification of catheter days of the electronic medical healthcare system has shortened the time of indwelling CVC” Bae et al (2022).
“The thin-tipped short bevel needle induced lower compressive deformation and displacement of the vein than the conventional needles. This needle has the potential to improve the first-attempt success rate of peripheral intravenous catheterization in patients with difficult venous access” Tanabe et al (2022).
“We make the invisible visible and challenged our Posidyne® IV in-line filters with 100 µm polystyrene red labeled particles” Pall 2022.
“Although they care for many hospitalized patients with difficult venous access (DVA), internal medicine (IM) residents do not routinely receive formal training in ultrasound-guided peripheral intravenous catheter (USG-PIV) placement” Dhanani et al (2022).
“So long as the central line bundle is maintained, a femoral line does not increase the risk of CRBSI. Causation can be determined through propensity score weighting, as this is a trustworthy method of estimating causality” Al-Sofyani and Uddin (2022).
