The differences in microorganism growth on various dressings used to cover injection sites: inspection of the risk of catheter-related bloodstream infections caused by Gram-negative bacilli

Abstract

Sepsis caused by Gram-negative bacilli (GNB) is the most serious catheter-related bloodstream infection. However, the cause(s) of GNB propagation on the skin around needle or catheter insertion sites remain unclear. This observational study aimed to assess the differences in the microbial growth among various types of dressings used to cover injection sites… (More)
