“Needlestick injuries with pathogen transmission can result in long-term health issues and psychological damage, therefore, it is imperative for radiologists to understand factors that increase the risk for transmission, methods to prevent injury, and how to manage an injury when it occurs” Lin et al (2022).
“Catheter size, hospitalisation in the surgery ward and continuous infusion contributed to the development of infiltration. Age, hospitalisation in the surgery ward and catheter placement in the antecubital vein contributed to the development of phlebitis” Karaoğlan et al (2022).

“To systematically review the evidence comparing landmark to ultrasound guidance for PIVC insertion in general paediatric patients” Kleidon et al (2022).
“This blog focuses on current knowledge regarding particles associated with water and air pollution and compares this knowledge to what we know about particles in infusion therapy – or simply called ‘infusion pollution'” Pall 2022.
“The majority of the PLSVC drain into coronary sinus and only 0.03% of PLSVC drain into the left atrium in the absence of a coronary sinus or unroofed coronary sinus syndrome (UCSS) or very rarely through the pulmonary vein” Solanki et al (2022).
“To evaluate the positioning of the distal tip of central venous catheters and the factors that contributed to inadequate positioning in patients admitted to intensive care” Santos et al (2022).
“The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence and causes of NSIs globally” Hosseinipalangi et al (2022).
“Primary repair of the second vertebral artery segment is infrequently detailed in the literature and this report describes pertinent case details and plan of action for identification and repair of iatrogenic vertebral artery injury following catheter placement” Opperman et al (2022).
“To improve consistency in the use of oral sucrose solution with comfort measures during peripheral intravenous catheter insertion attempts in the neonatal intensive care unit” Vykol et al (2022).
“The application of ultrasound-guided peripheral intravenous cannulation should be considered for patients with DIVA who require intravenous dental sedation or other common procedures in dental surgery that involve cannulation” Khan (2022).

“However, in some cases, the results of extravasation may be evident years after NICU treatment. In this case report, we describe a rare case of physeal arrest of the distal tibia in a preterm and discuss the possible causes” Samelis et al (2022).
“This survey demonstrated a considerably high prevalence of insulin injection-related needle-stick injuries among clinical nurses” Li et al (2022).
“SecurePort IV has been tested for compatibility with a wide range of catheters and can be used alone as a securement device or in addition to currently available devices” NICE (2022).
“Interdisciplinary clinicians and researchers need to work collaboratively with children and their families to provide resources and support services to ensure they have positive experiences with CVADs, no matter where they are managed, or who they are managed by” Ullman et al (2022).
“Implications of the findings for clinical practice are discussed, highlighting the need for a careful and calm approach to radiopharmacy activities” Elliott and Weatherley (2022).
“Bleeding events during hemodialysis treatments occur and may be fatal. Heightened vigilance is required when physical barriers obscure continuous direct observation, the patient exhibits an altered mental status, and vascular access is through a central venous catheter” Walton et al (2022).
