Background: Although many catheter-related blood-stream infections (CRBSIs) are preventable, measures to reduce these infections are not uniformly implemented. Objective: To update an existing evidenced-based guideline that promotes strategies to prevent CRBSIs. Data Sources: The MEDLINE database, conference proceedings, and bibliographies of review articles and book chapters were searched for relevant articles. Studies Included: Laboratory-based studies, controlled clinical trials, prospective… 
Infection Control and Prevention
This chapter discusses infection control measures directed at specific nosocomial infections that are of particular risk in this population of cancer center patients and the role for antimicrobial prophylaxis in infection prevention.
The Effect of Triple-lumen Flushing Training based on the Guideline in the Competence of Nurses
The current study revealed that the educational intervention of triple-lumen flushing training based on the designed guideline has significantly contributed to the excellence and promotion of knowledge, and as a result, the ability of nurses.
Effectiveness of securing central venous catheters with topical tissue adhesive in patients undergoing cardiac surgery: a randomized controlled pilot study
The use of a topical tissue adhesive can reduce the incidence of immediate postoperative pericatheter blood oozing, and this study aimed to evaluate fixation of CVCs with topical tissue adhesives in patients (prone to bleed) undergoing cardiac surgery regarding its ability to reduce the rate of peric Atherosclerosis.
Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infections in Children with Short Bowel Syndrome: A Single Center Retrospective Study
Klebsiella pneumoniae was the most common isolated pathogen of CRBSI in the studied SBS children, and an absence of ileocecal valve and long duration of PN were potential risk factors ofCRBSI.
Sustained reduction of catheter-associated bloodstream infections with enhancement of catheter bundle by chlorhexidine dressings over 11 years
The addition of chlorhexidine dressings to all CVC and arterial lines to an ongoing catheter bundle was associated with a sustained 11-year reduction of all catheter-associated bloodstream infections, which supports the current recommendations for the systematic use of CHG dressings on all catheters of ICU patients.
