Peripheral intravenous catheterization (PIVC) is the most frequent invasive clinical procedure in a hospital setting, associated with significant complication rates for the patient, compromising their well-being, as well as the quality, safety, and efficacy of the care provided. The traditional approach to PIVC is considered reactive and ineffective, resulting in the exhaustion of the patients' peripheral venous access prior to consideration of other access methods and options (Moureau et al., 2012).
Evidence suggests that the safety and effectiveness of patients with a peripheral catheter are also intrinsically associated with the adequacy of materials and technologies used in clinical contexts for vein selection, as well as for catheter insertion and maintenance care (Marsh, Webster, Mihala & Rickard, 2017). Several studies point to the inadequacy of the technologies and medical devices used in this area, enhancing the occurrence of complications such as infection, phlebitis, occlusion and accidental catheter removal (Braga, 2017; Costa, 2017; Nobre & Martins, 2018).
The project investigators aim to determine whether the use of a PIVC pack will significantly reduce associated complications when compared with the usual care. Additionally, the research team aims to determine if the use of a PIVC pack will reduce the number of insertion attempts and overall procedure time, as well as improving patient and provider satisfaction.
