A randomized trial on the effect of tubing changes on hub contamination and catheter sepsis
during parenteral nutrition.
Persistent bloodstream infections (repeated positive blood cultures with same organism) after appropriate antimicrobial treatment may indicate a deep-seated abscess or endovascular source such as endocarditis or intravascular catheter sepsis
that requires surgical drainage or removal of the catheter.
Staff training: A key in reducing intravascular catheter sepsis
3) Other biofilm-induced disease states include dental plaque and caries, catheter sepsis
, bacterial endocarditis, and cystic fibrosis pneumonia.
To emphasize the need to use arteriovenous fistula access for hemodialysis whenever possible, we report the case of a patient with end-stage renal disease and human immunodeficiency virus infection who died as a result of panhemispheric infarction and uncal herniation as a result of fulminant staphylococcal bacteremia caused by central venous catheter sepsis
No difference in catheter sepsis
between standard and antiseptic central venous catheters.
