CLABSIs occurred 2.4 times more often with tunneled catheters (3.5%) than with PICCs (1.4%), but CLABSI rates varied considerably across different NICUs.
Piccing members have also picced and curated hundreds of millions of items, generating nearly 250 million click-outs.
Em outro exemplo, residentes treinados para insercao de cateteres centrais por acesso periferico (PICC lines) em simuladores se sairam melhor na tarefa do que residentes treinados pelo metodo habitual baseado no aprendizado em servico, demonstrando transferencia de habilidades do laboratorio para a pratica clinica.
PICCs are pervasive access devices used in patients with complicated illnesses.
Although the use of central venous catheters (CVCs) are widespread in intensive care unit (ICU) and non-ICU in most hospitals, PICCs have become more popular in non-ICU department.1 There are many advantages in this technique compared with CVCs.
In recent years, PICCs have become the preferred device through which to administer long-term intravenous fluids, antibiotics and other drugs because they have lower risks of infection, can be conveniently placed at the bedside, and can stay in place for long periods of time.
Among the most important advances in infection control technology is the recent introduction of antimicrobial-impregnated peripherally-inserted central venous catheters (PICCs) and central venous catheters (CVCs).
"The PICC briefs the ISAF commander daily via video-teleconference rom the palace, and continually reports key security ministries, and ISAF commands seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day," added Zellem.
PICCs are most often inserted in the basilic vein, then advanced so the distal tip of the PICC rests in the Superior Vena Cava.
Buehrle's research question focussed on whether the type of needleless IV system used on patients with PICCs reduces the incidence of occlusion and did not address CR-BSI.
Forearm and upper-arm veins suitable for furore vascular access should not be used for venipuncture or for placement of IV catheters or subclavian catheters or peripherally inserted central catheter lines (PICCs) to avoid potential for ipsilateral peripheral access due to the risks of central vein stenosis and occlusion.
