OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the impact of catheter dwell time and gauge, catheter location, rate of contrast material administration, and patient age and sex on volume of extravasate at intravenous contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography. METHODS Incident reports were reviewed for all extravasation events that occurred in adult patients between March 2006 and December 2009 at 2 institutions. Patient age and sex; catheter dwell time, gauge, and location; rate… CONTINUE READING
