Economic evaluation and catheter-related bloodstream infections
The patient's illness increases the likelihood of catheter-related bloodstream infection
, and the probability of catheter-related bloodstream infection
also is influenced by the:
However, other researchers using similar antiseptic-coated catheters showed a significant reduction in catheter-related bloodstream infection
(Maki, Stolz, Wheeler, & Mermel, 1997; Raad, 1997).
Inclusion and exclusion criteria for review Inclusion criteria Had a full publication or manuscript for review Conducted a full economic evaluation which valued both costs and benefits of the intervention Based on a decision-analytic model Evaluated at least 1 infection-control intervention aimed at reducing incidence of catheter-related bloodstream infection
