Central venous catheterization is a basic skill applicable in various medical fields. However, because it may occasionally cause lethal complications, we developed this practical guide that will help ...
Central venous catheterization is the placement of a catheter in such a manner that its tip is positioned within the proximal third of the superior vena cava, the right atrium or the inferior vena cav...
Placing central venous lines under ultrasonographic guidance reduces the complications of the procedure.
To identify the most effective dressing for covering long-term central venous catheter exit site to prevent catheter-related infections and skin irritation in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem ce...
Catheter colonization, catheter-associated infection and catheter-associated bacteremia are a major challenge for resuscitation unit. This study wishes to explore the impact of the central...
The study investigates the efficacy of a catheter with antibacterial surface coating in preventing central venous catheter related infection and the effect of an intensive hygiene and cath...
A prospective study to compare the use of point of care echocardiography versus routine chest radiography for the assessment of central venous catheter placement.
Central venous catheter (CVC) is an essential tool in the management of both medical and surgical patients. Establishing venous access is critically important and is sometimes technically ...
Background: Central Venous catheter insertion technique and indwelling time are major risk factors for CVC colonisation. Colonisation occurs through microbial migration and biofilm formati...
Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.
The posture of an individual supported by the knees and chest resting on a table.
The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
