The majority of bloodstream infections are related to central venous catheters, and in the ICUs the incidence is higher. In , the CDC guidelines for handling of intravascular devices were published, with recommendations of the level of evidence for their handling.
Colocación de Cateter Venoso Central y el uso de Inotrópicos
Methods: The present study is the first of two phases destined to systematize the handling of the central venous catheters to CDC guidelines.
The rate of related infections to CVC was calculated per 1, catheter days. The results were analyzed using the Chi-squared test and the results of some of the variables by logistic regression and t student test.
Results: Data were successfully obtained on catheters catheter days. Of catheters, 68 were cultured, being positive 57 of them.
Conclusions: Now, the rate of catheter related infections in the ICU is higher than the maximum allowed and a uniform handling of the catheters does not exist. We found seven bloodstream infections and 34 not confirmed bloodstream infections, total 33 per catheter days, six times greater than the standard.
The most important variable was the urgent collocation of the catheters. The most important things than need to be implemented are positioning of the catheters in a sterile way, hand washing, removal of unnecessary catheters and personnel education..
