BACKGROUND Intravenous lipid emulsions and the i.v. catheters through which they were administered were the major risk factors for nosocomial coagulase-negative staphylococcal (CONS) bacteremia among newborns in our neonatal intensive care units a decade ago. However, medical practice is changing, and these and other interventions may have different effects in the current setting. OBJECTIVES We determined the independent risk factors for CONS bacteremia in current very low birth weight… CONTINUE READING
