An innovative cyanoacrylate device developed to improve the current standard of care for intravascular catheter securement.
CONCLUSION: This is one of the first studies to provide quantitative data to support the use of cyanoacrylate for intravascular catheter securement. The results from this research suggest that the novel catheter securement cyanoacrylate can be a simple and cost-effective catheter securement device that can improve the current health care protocol for intravascular catheterization.

Conclusions: The "proximal pen-holding method" for real-time USG-IJV cannulation helped in avoiding PVWP with lesser complication rate and greater performer's ease. PMID: 31621672 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Bekçibaşi M, Dayan S, Aslan E, Kortak MZ, Hoşoğlu S Abstract Our study aimed to identify the risk factors playing a role in central venous catheter-related bloodstream infections (CR-BSI) in a tertiary large volume university hospital. The current prospective clinical trial was conducted in a university hospital with 1400 beds. All demographic data, length of hospital stay, coexisting diseases, features of catheters used, invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and all antibiotics used in patients with CVCs were recorded. A total of 356 CVCs inserted in 281 patients were followed up for 56...
Arrow 8.5 Fr. X 16 cm Quad-Lumen Central Venous Catheterization Kit Product Code:AK-42854-P1A - Product Usage: The Arrow Central Venous Catheters are intended to permit venous access to the central circulation by way of the femoral, jugular or subclavian veins.
Internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombosis is a rare vascular event. It is most commonly due to prolonged central venous catheterization, infection, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, intravenous drug abuse, malignancy or primary. We have present here a case of a 82- year- old male with chronic kidney disease who presented with left neck swelling and pain who was found to have a thrombus in the left internal internal jugular vein. He was successfully treated with conservative treatment without any complications.
Publication date: Available online 17 September 2019Source: American Journal of Infection ControlAuthor(s): Sun-young Kim, Sung-il Cho, Ji Hwan BangWe studied bloodstream infection by multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii among patients in a medical intensive care unit. Over a 7-year period, 47 of 441 colonized patients developed a bloodstream infection.. Endotracheal intubation (odds ratio [OR], 5.88), ventilator support (OR, 3.70), and central venous catheterization (OR, 3.48) were identified as risk factors.
This study evaluated whether this micro-bubble detection test can offer better confirmation of peripheral venous catheter positions compared with the smooth saline injection technique in pediatric patients. Design: Randomized controlled study. Setting: Single tertiary PICU. Patients: Pediatric patients (weighing
CONCLUSIONImmunosuppression, ICU admission, antibiotics exposure including carbapenems, quinolones, glycopeptides, β‑lactams and β‑lactamase inhibitor combinations, surgery, mechanical ventilation, central venous catheterization, indwelling catheter and nasogastric catheter intubation are risk factors for CRKP infection. These conditions have to be considered in clinical practice
AbstractBecause Fontan circulation does not have a subpulmonary ventricle, the preload is limited. In Fontan circulation with extracardiac conduit, the size of conduit could be an important factor in determining the preload. We compared exercise capacity with each conduit size and tried to search for optimal conduit size in Fontan circulation. We reviewed the medical record of 677 patients with Fontan circulation. Patients who had other type Fontan circulation (Kawashima, atriopulmonary, lateral tunnel), SpO2
CONCLUSION: Due to the small number and low quality of identified studies, it is difficult to draw definitive conclusions on the relative effectiveness and safety of guide wire versus liquid electrodes for the placement of central venous catheters in adults. More well-designed studies are needed in the future. PMID: 31422729 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
