This study was undertaken to calculate the incidence of 8 signs and symptoms used for the diagnosis of phlebitis with peripheral intravenous catheters, or short peripheral catheters, and the level of correlation between them. A total of 22 789 daily observations of 6 signs (swelling, erythema, leakage, palpable venous cord, purulent discharge, and warmth) and 2 symptoms (pain and tenderness) were analyzed of 5907 catheter insertion sites. Most signs and symptoms of phlebitis occurred only… Expand
Improving the Detection of Phlebitis in Hospitalized Children
TLDR
It is all the more important to routinely inspect the cannula site for any complication, and the present recommendation is rotation of PIVC site based on clinical indications, rather than at preset intervals. Expand
Incidence Of Phlebitis Associated With Osmolarity
TLDR
Nurses and medical personnel need to consider the osmolarity is given through a peripheral IV catheter when giving treatment for phlebitis when in Pediatric's wards of hospitals in Banjarmasin. Expand
Effectiveness of ADULT Bundle to Prevention of Phlebitis
Phlebitis is the most common complication due to placement peripheral venous catheter. Prevention of phlebitis can reduce the length of stay and the cost from hospital. This study aims to examine theExpand
Post-injection thrombophlebitis in patients undergoing peripheral IV catheterization in a tertiary care hospital: incidence and risk factors
TLDR
Assessment of the potential risk factors in those who have developed phlebitis found significant association was noted between the number of times the catheter was changed since admission and administration of Potassium chloride and Certain medications such as Piperacillin through the cannula. Expand
Practical view of the topical treatment of peripheral venous catheter-related phlebitis: A scoping review.
TLDR
The evidence currently available on this issue is limited and often of dubious methodological rigour, and further studies are required on the treatment and follow-up of intravenous therapy-related phlebitis in different national and international contexts. Expand
Vancomycin Infusion Methods on Phlebitis Prevention in Children
TLDR
According to the results, intervention vancomycin infusion method is more effective in reducing phlebitis as a result of intravenous catheter, compared to the routine vancomysyn infusion method. Expand
spp . present in peripheral intravenous catheters , their virulence factors and antibiotic resistance Staphylococcus spp . presentes em cateteres intravenosos periféricos , seus fatores de virulência
The insertion of a peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) is one of the most frequently performed invasive procedures in the hospital setting. However, PIVCs usually fail before the completion ofExpand
Prospective cohort study on the management and complications of peripheral venous catheter in patients hospitalised in internal medicine.
TLDR
compliance with the insertion-maintenance recommendations for PVC showed differences between the departments; however, the incidence of complications was similar and the most common complication was phlebitis. Expand
Effectiveness of transparent film dressing for peripheral intravenous catheter
TLDR
The use of transparent film dressing for insertion of peripheral intravenous catheter can be recommended as it increases the dwell time for the catheter and reduces incidence of complications. Expand
Effectiveness of topical interventions to prevent or treat intravenous therapy-related phlebitis: A systematic review.
TLDR
A systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) found insufficient data to build a solid conclusion that lead to recommend a specific topical intervention in the prevention or treatment of intravenous therapy-related phlebitis. Expand

Inter-rater agreement on PIVC-associated phlebitis signs, symptoms and scales.
TLDR
Inter-rater agreement for phlebitis assessment signs/symptoms and scales is low, which likely contributes to the high degree of variability in phle Bitis rates in literature. Expand
Infusion phlebitis assessment measures: a systematic review
TLDR
Many phlebitis scales exist, but none has been thoroughly validated for use in clinical practice and a lack of consensus on phleBitis measures has likely contributed to disparities in reported phle Bitis incidence, precluding meaningful comparison of phle bitis rates. Expand
