“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).
“The results of our study demonstrated that there was no significantly lower perceived pain or anxiety when using IVR compared to standard practice in adults undergoing IV blood draw” Perdue et al (2022).
“Prehospital and emergency department nursing staff are aware of the importance of intraosseous access and understand the need for additional education and certification in this field” Žunkovič et al (2022).
“In summary, we found about 50% fewer CRBSI cases during the pandemic as compared to the equivalent time period before. This is somewhat unexpected, as there were no changes regarding CVC insertion procedures or care by the participating sites during the time periods” Schalk et al (2022).
“The CVC type, administration of concomitant chemotherapy via a distinct CVC lumen separate from PN, venting gastrostomy and distance between the patient’s home and the IF center were not associated with CRBSI or mechanical CVC complications” Kopczynska et al (2022).
“The injection of diluted sodium bicarbonate (in mechanically ventilated patients) can be used to reliably identify the correct location of an IV catheter by an increase in the exhaled carbon dioxide concentration” Keidan et al (2022).
“HD provides a good opportunity for treatment with IV antibiotics in DFI. This mode of administration of IV antibiotics, along with multidisciplinary intervention, is associated with ulcer healing and resolution of infection in over three-quarters of patients with DFI” Pittam et al (2022).
“We report what we believe the first case of candidemia in an infant with short bowel syndrome caused by the environmental yeast Candida sojae that was initially misidentified as Candida tropicalis” Abdel-Haq et al (2022).
“Recently, LRac was reported as a cutaneous manifestation of hydrophilic polymer gel embolization (HPE) in adults. We present a case of LRac in a newborn that developed following CVC insertion and resolved spontaneously after the catheter was removed” Barsan Kaya et al (2022).
“In conclusion, the 2.5-year CI of VTE among our pediatric patient cohort was <5% and adolescent age was the main patient-related risk factor" Gidl et al (2022).
“Difficulty in setting up PIVC was the greatest in infants and even greater than that in newborns” chu et al (2022).
“In summary, building multidisciplinary teams with the involvement of clinical pharmacists improves the management of home-treated infections, promoting a safe self-administration and increasing OPAT patients’ quality of life” Ortonobes et al (2022).
“Listening to music reduced cannulation pain in patients on hemodialysis, although there was no significant effect on anxiety, BP, or stress markers” Inayama et al (2022).
“In conclusion, when imaging guidance is used for IVAPC insertion by an experienced surgeon in a high-volume center, performing post-procedure routine chest radiography shows little benefit” Ghoddusi Johari et al (2022).
“This review indicated a substantial body of evidence showing time/resource and cost savings of SC versus IV administration of oncology biologics in a hospital setting” McCloskey et al (2022).
“Following clinical and radiographic evaluation, contrast-enhanced line studies constitute the next best diagnostic tool to assess the functionality of central venous catheters” Shashi et al (2022).
“In the 14-year period under study, 406 tunneled catheters were implanted in 325 patients. A total of 85 cases of tunneled catheter-related bacteremia were diagnosed, resulting in an incidence of 0.40 per 1000 catheter days (81.1% after 6 months of implantation)” Almenara-Tejederas et al (2022).
“We propose an Input-Mediator-Output-Input (IMOI) model of interprofessional teamwork in the context of HAI prevention” Gregory et al (2022).
“The practice of FU-BCs in patients with GN-BSI should be individualised balancing cost/benefit ratio” Giannella et al (2022).
