The risk of catheter-related bloodstream infection
with femoral venous catheters as compared to subclavian and internal jugular venous catheters: A systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis.
Dokdonella koreensis is a Gram-negative bacilli that was first isolated from the soil and has been reported previously in patients with catheter-related bloodstream infections
. We report herein the first case of relapsing PD-associated peritonitis due to Dokdonella koreensis over a three-month period in a patient with end-stage renal failure.
The cause of HD catheter-related bloodstream infections
(CRBSIs) is multifactorial ranging from patient's factors (i.e., comorbidities and hygiene) to catheter's factors (i.e., types of catheter and sites of insertion) .
Catheter-related bloodstream infection
was found with a rate of 5.5% in our study.
Short-term catheters (those in place less than 14 days) should be removed from patients with catheter-related bloodstream infections
due to S.
Difference in time to positivity is useful for the diagnosis of catheter-related bloodstream infection
in hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients.
A review of risk factors for catheter-related bloodstream infection
caused by percutaneous inserted, noncuffed central venous catheters: implications for preventive strategies.
Device-associated infections (DAIs), particularly ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), central venous catheter-related bloodstream infection
(CVC-BSI), and catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) pose the greatest threat to ICU patients (5-7).
Those compliance policies cover such categories as hand hygiene, surgical site infection and catheter-related bloodstream infection
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:
