Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: During decompensated heart failure, the use of intravenous inotropes can be necessary. With peripheral venous access, prolonged inotrope infusion can cause phlebitis. However, traditional central venous catheters have possible complications. Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) may be an alternative to traditional catheters.AIM: Our objective was to compare the incidence of phlebitis between patients with PICC and those with peripheral venous access catheter indwelling.METHODS: In a randomized ...

Adv Neonatal Care. 2021 Nov 2. doi: 10.1097/ANC.0000000000000963. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Within every neonatal clinical setting, vascular access devices are considered essential for administration of fluids, nutrition, and medications. However, use of vascular access devices is not without danger of failure. Catheter securement adhesives are being evaluated among adult populations, but to date, studies in neonatal settings are scant.PURPOSE: This research describes the prevalence of peripherally inserted central catheter failure related to catheter securement before and after the introduction of tissue a...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Peripheral venous access for extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) may be difficult in graft versus host disease (GVHD) patients, because of previous intravenous therapies and multiple peripheral cannulations; in this population of patients, ultrasound guided midline catheters may be an alternative option to central venous access.METHODS: In this single-center, prospective preliminary study, we enrolled all consecutive patients with a diagnosis of GVHD and candidate to ECP, over a period of 10 months. We u...
