Are antiseptic-coated central venous catheters effective in a real-world setting?
Complications and risks of central venous catheter placement in children.
A number of interventions have been shown to decrease bloodstream infections associated with central venous catheters. Many interventions that have contributed to decreases in bloodstream infections in ICUs have targeted catheter insertion, including the use of maximal barrier precautions (such as a gown, mask, cap, sterile gloves, and a full body drape) at insertion and the use of chlorhexidine for skin antisepsis (CDC, 2011a).

Evaluation of routine postoperative chest roentgenogram for determination of the correct position of permanent central venous catheter tip.
Assuming that a possibility of the abnormal location of catheter tip caused the hydrothorax, CVC was removed and a new central venous catheter was installed under ultrasound guidance through internal jugular vein on right side.
All patients over 18 years old admitted to the participating ICUs during the study period who had a non-tunelled central venous catheter (CVC) inserted were eligible for the study.
from London, UK, presented case reports of six individuals with retained central venous catheters, and found that they were directly related to length of time in situ--three to seven years.
However, in several of these studies changes were made in central venous catheter care policy simultaneous to staff education that may have been the catalyst for decreasing infection rates.
