“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).
“This device can therefore be used according to the healthcare professionals’ situation and needs. It is widely used in paediatric wards, and our study shows that it offers a support tool that reassures healthcare professionals and helps validate their choice of vein easiest to catheterise” Usclade et al (2021).
“Training nurses in HC may translate into improved pain and distress in patients, both self-rated and observed provided that skills are used in practice. HC training is a promising non-pharmacological intervention to address pain in paediatrics” Ogez et al (2021).
“Radiologists play a critical role in ascertaining correct catheter placement and alerting clinicians to improperly placed lines” Jhala et al (2021).
“These findings support the inclusion of intraosseous access as a route for epinephrine administration in current guidelines” Roberts 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).
“The use of simulation-based mastery associated with USGPIVs, demonstrated lower failure rates than standard PIVs after 2 days and USGPIVs exhibited improved survival rates in patients with DIVA” Feinsmith et al (2021).
“However, some factors related to bundle compliance and measurement remain unaddressed, including harder to change socio-cultural factors likely important to sustainability of the CLABSI reductions and fostering further improvements across a broader safety agenda” Goldman et al (2021).
Arterial catheterisation in critically ill patients Abstract: Introduction: The use of peripheral indwelling arterial catheter for haemodynamic monitoring is widespread in the intensive care unit
“The VAD significantly led to magnetic tracking system failure due to its electromagnetic interference during Sherlock 3CG insertion and significantly reduced the success rate of PICC insertions in the optimal position” Takakura et al (2021).
