“The timing of infection demonstrates the need for more careful attention to postinsertion care and access of central venous catheters” Klintworth et al (2014).
“The stability of an admixture containing reconstituted daptomycin and heparin in lactated Ringer’s injection was evaluated” Ortega et al (2014).
“The most commonly reported drugs were noradrenaline (161 incidents, 92 with harm), heparins (153 incidents, 29 with harm), morphine (131 incidents, 14 with harm) and insulin (111 incidents, 54 with harm)” Thomas and Taylor (2014).
“Despite universal heparin thromboprophylaxis, nonleg thromboses are found in 2.2% of medical-surgical critically ill patients, primarily in deep veins and proximal veins” Lamontagne et al (2014).
“TAH virus infections were a larger problem than perceived 50 years ago and HCV was the predominant agent transmitted” Engle et al (2014).
“We aimed to evaluate the inflammatory profile of hemodialysis patients before and after locking catheters with an antimicrobial lock solution” Fontseré et al (2014).
“In this article, we will discuss the challenges faced by operators inserting CVCs into the hemodialysis-dependent patient who has exhausted more tradition insertion sites” Powell and Belfield (2014).
“In this article we review the general features of CVCs, including differences between tunneled and nontunneled CVCs, materials and their compatibility with lock solutions, the implications of straight versus precurved design in nontunneled CVCs, lumen and tip features with their clinical implications, catheter coatings and their effect on infection and thrombosis” Gallieni et al (2014).
“The aim of this randomized controlled study was to investigate the effects of a novel external catheter fixation method for chemotherapy using inferior epigastric arterial catheterization for cervical cancer” Chen et al (2014).
“Significantly fewer patients required unplanned reinsertion with the CICS. The results suggest that the longer survival rate for the CICS can offset the higher initial catheterization costs” Tamura et al (2014).
“Our data show a high survival rate of tCVCs in hemodialysis patients, with low incidence of catheter dysfunction and CRBS events. These data justify tCVC use for hemodialysis vascular access, also as first choice, especially in patients with exhausted peripheral access and limited life expectancy” Mandolfo et al (2014).
“The lateral short axis in-plane technique should be considered the first-line technique for IJV cannulation” Rossi et al (2014).
