They form a stable non-covalent complex with ALPHA-THROMBIN, thereby abolishing its ability to cleave FIBRINOGEN.Leukocyte Count: The number of WHITE BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in venous BLOOD. A differential leukocyte count measures the relative numbers of the different types of white cells.Magnetic Resonance Angiography: Non-invasive method of vascular imaging and determination of internal anatomy without injection of contrast media or radiation exposure. The technique is used especially in CEREBRAL ANGIOGRAPHY as well as for studies of other vascular structures.Aortic Valve: The valve between the left ventricle and the ascending aorta which prevents backflow into the left ventricle.Leg: The inferior part of the lower extremity between the KNEE and the ANKLE.Pilot Projects: Small-scale tests of methods and procedures to be used on a larger scale if the pilot study demonstrates that these methods and procedures can work.Central Venous Pressure: The blood pressure in the central large VEINS of the body. It is distinguished from peripheral venous pressure which occurs in an extremity.Vascular System Injuries: Injuries to blood vessels caused by laceration, contusion, puncture, or crush and other types of injuries. Symptoms vary by site and mode of injuries and may include bleeding, bruising, swelling, pain, and numbness. It does not include injuries secondary to pathologic function or diseases such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS.Leukocytes: White blood cells. These include granular leukocytes (BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and NEUTROPHILS) as well as non-granular leukocytes (LYMPHOCYTES and MONOCYTES).Vaginal Fistula: An abnormal anatomical passage that connects the VAGINA to other organs, such as the bladder (VESICOVAGINAL FISTULA) or the rectum (RECTOVAGINAL FISTULA).Dose-Response Relationship, Drug: The relationship between the dose of an administered drug and the response of the organism to the drug.Urinary Incontinence: Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.Pulmonary Valve: A valve situated at the entrance to the pulmonary trunk from the right ventricle.Pressure: A type of stress exerted uniformly in all directions. Its measure is the force exerted per unit area. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)Brachiocephalic Veins: Large veins on either side of the root of the neck formed by the junction of the internal jugular and subclavian veins. They drain blood from the head, neck, and upper extremities, and unite to form the superior vena cava.Intracranial Embolism: Blocking of a blood vessel in the SKULL by an EMBOLUS which can be a blood clot (THROMBUS) or other undissolved material in the blood stream. Most emboli are of cardiac origin and are associated with HEART DISEASES. Other non-cardiac sources of emboli are usually associated with VASCULAR DISEASES.Ecchymosis: Extravasation of blood into the skin, resulting in a nonelevated, rounded or irregular, blue or purplish patch, larger than a petechia.
Endovascular repair of a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm: a tip for systemic pressure reduction. (1/550)A proposed technique for systemic pressure reduction during deployment of a stent graft was studied. A 67-year-old man, who had a descending thoracic aneurysm, was successfully treated with an endovascular procedure. An occluding balloon was introduced into the inferior vena cava (IVC) through the femoral vein. The balloon volume was manipulated with carbon dioxide gas to reduce the venous return, resulting in a transient and well-controlled hypotension. This IVC-occluding technique for systemic pressure reduction may be safe and convenient to minimize distal migration of stent grafts. (+info)
Risk of clot formation in femoral arterial sheaths maintained overnight for neuroangiographic procedures. (2/550)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the presence of blood clots in femoral arterial sheaths maintained after cerebral angiography and the effect of heparinized saline on clot formation. METHODS: Twenty-three sheaths were evaluated in 18 patients. Sheaths were maintained for 14 to 80 hours (average, 33 hours; median, 24 hours). After the sheaths were removed, they were vigorously flushed with 60 mL of normal saline and the number and size of clots found in each sheath were recorded. Additionally, patients' age, catheter size, presence of heparin, amount of time the sheath was kept in the artery, and patients' coagulation status were recorded. RESULTS: Clots were found in 17 (74%) of the 23 sheaths. Ten catheters had continuous heparin drip, of which seven (70%) sustained clots. Of the 13 sheaths without heparin, 10 sustained clots (77%). The difference was not statistically significant. The average number of clots was 2.2, and the maximal length of clots ranged from 0.5 to 105 mm. No thromboembolic complications associated with sheath placement were encountered in our patient population. CONCLUSION: Blood clots are present in the vast majority of intraarterial sheaths maintained after cerebral angiography. These clots constitute a risk of thromboembolic complications in the event of repeat angiography. Sheath exchange should be considered before obtaining repeat cerebral angiograms. (+info)
An unusual cutaneous manifestation of myelodysplastic syndrome: "pseudo-Koebner phenomenon". (3/550)An unusual and hitherto unreported complication of myelodysplastic syndrome is reported: the "pseudo-Koebner phenomenon." The skin lesions were characterised by exuberant "fleshy" masses at the sites of intravenous cannulation and skin trauma, and by histological evidence of chronic inflammation with focal necrosis and abscess formation. No evidence of dermal infiltration by malignant haemopoietic cells was seen. The exact aetiopathology of the phenomenon is unclear but an inappropriate and exaggerated inflammatory response owing to aberrant mediator mechanisms that are known to occur in some cases of myelodysplastic syndrome may be implicated.

A reexamination of the angiotoxicity of superselective injection of DMSO in the swine rete embolization model. (4/550)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There are a variety of embolization applications for non-adhesive, liquid agents. We reevaluated the potential microvascular angiotoxicity of superselective infusions of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) using very long infusion rates in a previously described animal model. METHODS: Twenty-six swine underwent percutaneous femoral puncture for superselective catheterization of the artery of the rete while being continuously monitored for ECG and intraarterial pressure. Two volumes (0.5 or 0.8 mL) and three durations (30, 60, and 90 seconds) of superselective infusion of DMSO were used to evaluate the effect of a single-dose rate within an ipsilateral rete. Contralateral control infusions of normal saline were also administered. Acute hemodynamic and angiographic outcomes were assessed. After recovery, follow-up angiography and sacrifice were performed at either 10 or 28 days. Brains and retia were harvested for gross and microscopic histopathologic evaluation. RESULTS: No significant hemodynamic alterations occurred acutely. Twenty-three of the 24 infused retia showed variable acute vasospasm that typically was mild to moderate in severity and transient (10 to 20 minutes). Follow-up angiography at sacrifice always showed normal retial arterial anatomy. No adverse clinical sequelae were noted. Gross inspection of brains showed no evidence of infarction or subarachnoid hemorrhage. Microscopic histopathologic examination of retia showed mostly nonspecific changes in both exposed and control samples. Possible causal histotoxicity was seen in four retia (three of four exposed to higher dose rates), in which involvement was limited to one to three retial arteries. CONCLUSION: Lower total dose and dose rates of superselective infusion of DMSO into the retial microarterial network resulted in substantially less angiotoxicity than that found in a previous study, as defined by clinical, angiographic, gross, and histopathologic criteria.

Superselective intraarterial fibrinolysis in central retinal artery occlusion. (5/550)Intraarterial fibrinolysis was performed in three patients with acute central retinal artery occlusion using recombinant tissue plasminogen activator as a fibrinolytic agent. In two cases the ophthalmic artery was selectively catheterized, and in the other a thrombolytic drug was infused into the ophthalmic artery by way of the meningeal collaterals. All patients experienced visual improvement. Fibrinolysis can produce better results than obtained from conservative treatment. A good prognosis can be achieved if the treatment starts within the first 4 to 5 hours after occlusion. (+info)
Application of a rheolytic thrombectomy device in the treatment of dural sinus thrombosis: a new technique. (6/550)We present a novel application of a transvascular rheolytic thrombectomy system in the treatment of symptomatic dural sinus thrombosis in a 54-year-old woman with somnolence and left-sided weakness. The diagnosis of bilateral transverse and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis was made and the patient was treated with anticoagulant therapy. After an initial period of improvement, she became comatose and hemiplegic 8 days after presentation. After excluding intracerebral hemorrhage by MR imaging, we performed angiography and transfemoral venous thrombolysis with a hydrodynamic thrombectomy catheter, followed by intrasinus urokinase thrombolytic therapy over the course of 2 days. This technique resulted in dramatic sinus thrombolysis and near total neurologic recovery. Six months after treatment, the patient showed mild cognitive impairment and no focal neurologic deficit. Our preliminary experience suggests that this technique may play a significant role in the endovascular treatment of this potentially devastating disease. (+info)
Pharmacokinetic advantage of intra-arterial cyclosporin A delivery to vascularly isolated rabbit forelimb. I. Model development. (7/550)Effective antirejection therapy with minimal systemic morbidity is required if limb transplantation is to become a clinical reality. We investigated whether i.a. infusion of cyclosporin A (CSA) into the vascularly isolated rabbit forelimb will distribute drug homogeneously to the tissues and produce higher local drug levels than same-dose i.v. treatment, thereby improving the therapeutic index. CSA 4.0 mg/kg/day was infused continuously via osmotic minipump into either the right brachial artery (i.a. group) or jugular vein (i.v. group) of New Zealand rabbits. Ligation of all muscles at the right mid-arm level was performed in the i.a. group to eliminate collateral circulation and simulate allografting, while leaving bone and neurovasculature intact. On day 6, CSA concentrations were measured in skin, muscle, bone, and bone marrow samples taken from different compartments of the right and left forearms in the i.a. group and right forearm only in the i.v. group. There were no significant differences between compartmental CSA levels in all tissues examined on the locally treated, right side during i.a. infusion, indicating that drug streaming from the catheter tip is not occurring in our model. During i.a. infusion, mean CSA concentrations were 4- to 7-fold higher in the right limb than in the left limb in all four tissues examined. Tissue CSA levels in the left limb were equivalent to those achieved during i.v. infusion, but CSA concentrations in blood, kidney, and liver were higher during i.a. infusion. These favorable, preliminary, single-dose pharmacokinetic results warrant further investigation in our novel rabbit model. (+info)
Pharmacokinetic advantage of intra-arterial cyclosporin A delivery to vascularly isolated rabbit forelimb. II. Dose dependence. (8/550)A vascularly isolated rabbit forelimb model simulating conditions of composite tissue allografting was used to determine the regional pharmacokinetic advantage achievable in extremity tissue components during i.a. cyclosporin A (CSA) administration. CSA was infused continuously via osmotic minipump into the right brachial artery of New Zealand rabbits at multiple doses ranging from 1.0 to 8.0 mg/kg/day. On day 6, CSA concentrations were measured in aortic whole blood, as well as in skin, muscle, bone, and bone marrow samples from both right and left forelimbs. The variation of right-sided mean CSA concentrations with dose was tissue dependent and saturable in the case of skin and bone, whereas left-sided tissue concentrations correlated significantly with systemic blood levels. At 1.0 mg/kg/day, there were no significant differences between right and left mean CSA concentrations for all four tissues examined. However, with a doubling of the i.a. dose, huge increases in local tissue CSA concentrations were produced with only very modest increases in systemic whole-blood and tissue drug levels, resulting in a 4-fold regional advantage (right/left ratio of CSA concentrations) in bone and bone marrow, 7-fold in muscle, and 14-fold in skin. With further dose increases to 8.0 mg/kg/day, the regional advantage decreased to 4-fold in skin, increased to 9-fold in bone marrow, remained relatively constant in bone, and initially decreased and then increased to 9-fold in muscle. These favorable pharmacokinetic results suggest that reduced, local doses of CSA might be useful in preventing extremity composite tissue allograft rejection with decreased systemic drug exposure.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Accurate nonfluoroscopic guidance and tip location of peripherally inserted central catheters using a conductance guidewire system. AU - Svendsen, Mark C.. AU - Birrer, David. AU - Jansen, Benjamin. AU - Teague, Shawn D.. AU - Combs, Bill. AU - Schears, Gregory J.. AU - Kassab, Ghassan S.. PY - 2013/4. Y1 - 2013/4. N2 - Background: Bedside placement of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) may result in navigation to undesirable locations, such as the contralateral innominate or jugular vein, instead of the superior vena cava or right atrium. Although some guidance and tip location tools exist, they have inherent limitations because of reliance on physiological measures (eg, chest landmarks, electrocardiogram, etc), instead of anatomical assessment (ie, geometric changes in the vasculature). In this study, an accurate, anatomically based, non-X-ray guidance tool placed on a novel 0.035" conductance guidewire (CGW) is validated for PICC navigation and tip location. ...
Peripherally inserted central catheter - Wikipedia
A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC or PIC line), less commonly called a percutaneous indwelling central catheter, is a form of intravenous access that can be used for a prolonged period of time (e.g., for long chemotherapy regimens, extended antibiotic therapy, or total parenteral nutrition) or for administration of substances that should not be done peripherally (e.g., antihypotensive agents a.k.a. pressors). It is a catheter that enters the body through the skin (percutaneously) at a peripheral site, extends to the superior vena cava (a central venous trunk), and stays in place (dwells within the veins) for days or weeks. First described in 1975, it is an alternative to central venous catheters in major veins such as the subclavian vein, the internal jugular vein or the femoral vein. Subclavian and jugular line placements may result in pneumothorax (air in the pleural space of lung), while PICC lines have no such issue because of the method of placement. In those who are very ...
Case Study of a Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter's Migration into the Pulmonary Artery | Journal of the Association for...
An untoward event took place in Australia in 2011 involving a patient whose entire peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) migrated into his pulmonary artery. At this particular rural hospital, a small vascular access team was initially formed; however, the PICC insertion procedure was taken over by a physician intensivist and his medical residents, who learned the procedure from him during their 3-month rotations. The distal portion of the patients PICC, attached initially to a distal catheter-stabilizing device, dislodged and was drawn into the vein. The patients PICC, now in his pulmonary artery, was retrieved via interventional radiology and the patient experienced no serious side effects from this event. This case highlights the importance of using only highly trained personnel who are familiar with the medical supplies to insert PICCs. ...

Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters (PICCs) and Potential Cost Savings and Shortened Bed Stays In an Acute Hospital Setting...
Peripheral inserted central catheters (PICCs) have increasingly become the mainstay of patients requiring prolonged treatment with antibiotics, transfusions, oncologic IV therapy and total parental nutrition. They may also be used in delivering a number of other medications to patients. In recent years, bed occupancy rates have become hugely pressurized in many hospitals and any potential solutions to free up beds is welcome. Recent introductions of doctor or nurse led intravenous (IV) outpatient based treatment teams has been having a direct effect on early discharge of patients and in some cases avoiding admission completely. The ability to deliver outpatient intravenous treatment is facilitated by the placement of PICCs allowing safe and targeted treatment of patients over a prolonged period of time. We carried out a retrospective study of 2,404 patients referred for PICCs from 2009 to 2015 in a university teaching hospital. There was an exponential increase in the number of PICCs requested ...
Digital ischaemia following inadvertent arterial cannulation of a peripherally inserted central catheter in a very low birth...
d). The limb remained well perfused and Doppler ultrasonography performed on Day 8 showed good distal arterial flow.. Arterial cannulation as a complication of PICCs has been reported in adults, but this is the first case reported in a neonate. There has been only one published case series of two neonates with significant digital ischaemia following intravenous cannulation and administration of parenteral nutrition, crystalloid and blood products.(1) Familiarity with the normal arterial anatomy of the hand is essential in preventing vascular compromise. The anatomical snuffbox is a potentially dangerous insertion site, as it contains the radial artery after it has curved dorsally and distally at the lateral aspect of the wrist to reach the deep palmar arch.(2) The first web space is the second area to avoid, as the princeps pollicis artery, a branch of the radial artery that provides the blood supply to the thumb, transverses the first web space superficial to the muscles to reach the thumb.(1) ...
Factors contributing to the contamination of peripheral intravenous catheters in dogs and cats | Veterinary Record
The aim of this study was to identify factors that contribute significantly to the bacterial contamination of peripheral intravenous catheters in dogs and cats. Between January and June 2005, intravenous catheters were removed from 84 dogs and 15 cats at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals, Royal Veterinary College. None of the factors under consideration was significantly associated with bacterial contamination, but 42·9 per cent of the animals with clinical signs consistent with a peripheral catheter-related infection, 34·8 per cent of the animals in which blood had been collected from the catheter immediately after its insertion, and 21·1 per cent of the animals in which a T-connector rather than a Y-connector had been used had contaminated cannulae, compared with 19·0 per cent, 19·7 per cent and 8·3 per cent, respectively, of the animals that did not have signs of such an infection, from which blood was not taken immediately, and that had a Y-connector rather than a T-connector. ...

The incidence of peripheral catheter related thrombosis in surgical patients - [email protected]
Background: Central venous catheters and peripherally inserted central catheters are well established risk factors for upper limb deep vein thrombosis. There is limited literature on the thrombosis rates in patients with peripheral catheters. A prospective observational study was conducted to determine the incidence of peripheral catheter-related thrombosis in surgical patients. Methods: Patients deemed high risk for venous thrombosis with a peripheral catheter were considered eligible for the study. An ultrasound was performed on enrolment into the study and at discharge from hospital. Participants were reviewed twice a day for clinical features of upper limb deep vein thrombosis during their admission and followed up at 30 days. Results: 54 patients were included in the study. The incidence of deep vein thrombosis and superficial venous thrombosis was 1.8% and 9.2%, respectively. All cases of venous thrombosis were asymptomatic.

PICC Versus Midline | Article | NursingCenter
Q: What is the difference between a PICC and a midline?. Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC), which are central lines, and midline catheters, which are peripheral lines, are two types of vascular access devices (VAD) that are used frequently and are often confused with one another. The patients diagnosis, the predicted span of time the line will be required for therapy, the type of infusion needed, and the cognitive and intellectual level of the patient or caregiver are all considered when deciding which type of VAD the patient will need. PICC lines are typically chosen when longer lengths of intravenous therapy are needed but both PICC lines and midlines can remain in place for an indeterminable amount of time provided they are properly monitored for complications.. The PICC is inserted via the cephalic, basilic, brachial, or median cubital veins in the upper arm, and threaded so the catheter tip is located in the lower segment of the superior vena cava, which is considered central ...

Perusing the Literature: Skin Glue for Peripheral IV Securement | Brown Emergency Medicine
The Article: Bugden S, et al. Skin Glue Reduces the Failure Rate of Emergency Department-Inserted Peripheral Intravenous Catheters: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Ann Emerg Med. 2016;1-6.. The One-Liner: Skin glue, in addition to standard care securement, may reduce peripheral intravenous catheter failure rates at 48 hours for admitted patients after insertion in the ED.. Background: Frequently initiated in the ED setting, peripheral intravenous (IV) catheters may fail with inadequate fixation serving as the underlying etiology in infection, phlebitis, occlusion, or dislodgement. Failure disrupts hydration, antibiotic therapy, and analgesia for the patient, and incurs the added costs of additional supplies and staff time. In comparison to standard polyurethane dressings, medical-grade skin glue (cyanoacrylate) in addition to a dressing has been proven to be more effective in securing central venous, epidural, and peripheral arterial catheters. As peripheral IVs are administered on such a wide ...

Caroline Eads: Daniel's Update: Sunday, August 31
Caroline is still wearing a designer nasal canula (Im not sure if its Coach or LV, but its sooo this season) and its on about the lowest setting available. The remaining belly tube has a mandatory removal date sometime in the next 24-48 hours, but thats good and bad. The belly line has to come out because its at risk for an infection, but she still needs a line in for fluids, meds and food. If it were just fluids and meds, then an IV would work, but the food is a different story... so theyll soon have to insert a PICC line. A PICC line is a Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter. Its basically an IV that gets inserted into a vein in your upper left arm and pushed up near your heart. Food (or rough drugs) causes the small veins to collapse easily, so this will keep her from having to be stuck with a needle over and over again. It kinda stinks because it makes holding her a little more difficult, but its needed. Theyll put that intomorrow or Tuesday ...

You never know if all those needles - and Taylor took a lot - produce more pain. Science has linked Toradol to plantar fasciitis (the aforementioned torn tendons in Taylors feet), so Taylor might have been taking one painkiller … that helped create a different pain … and thus required a different painkiller. That was certainly the case after his compartment syndrome. He developed a staph infection that required that catheter to run from armpit to heart with antibiotics. Hed hook himself up to it for a half-hour a day, like a car getting gas, letting the balls of medicine roll into his body. Then he concealed the catheter in tape under his arm so that an opponent wouldnt know he was weak. Opponents will find your weakness, At the bottom of a fumble pile, a Buffalo Bills player once squeezed the hell out of Taylors Adams Apple to try and dislodge the football.

OBJECTIVE: The etiology of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) remains elusive despite known associations with several factors, including intestinal ischemia related to the effects of umbilical arterial catheterization on the mesenteric circulation. However, the role of the mesenteric venous circulation has yet to be studied as a potential cause of NEC. We examined the association between umbilical venous catheter (UVC) position and the development of NEC in prematureinfants. ...
Threadrite - University of Pittsburgh Innovation Institute
Peripheral intravenous catheters (or IVs) are the mainstay for providing therapies in modern medicine. Yet approximately 90 million people each year require multiple attempts to establish IV access. These extra attempts result in increased hospital cost associated with employee time, additional patient discomfort, and delays in delivering important therapies. Currently IV catheters rely upon blood return and they do not assist with advancing the catheter into the vein. ThreadRite is a modified standard catheter that immediately alerts clinicians to vein entry. It also employs a guidewire to help clinicians thread the IV right into the vein. ThreadRite will reduce patient pain as well as provider costs associated with this common problem.. ...

Background: Peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs) are the most widely used invasive devices among inpatients. Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) are serious yet preventable events for patients. Although the contribution of PIVCs towards these infections is gradually being recognised, its role in the Spanish setting is yet to be determined. We aimed to estimate the rate and incidence of PIVC failure at Manacor hospital (Spain) as baseline within a wider quality improvement initiative. Methods: Tips from all PIVC removed during December 2017 and January 2018 in hospital wards were cultured semiquantitatively. The study population included all PIVCs inserted in adult patients admitted to any of three medical and one surgical wards, emergency department, critical care unit and operating rooms.

The technique of blood samples extraction from the radial artery through an arterial catheter with a 3-way stopcock and automated washing with valve of fast flow is better than the one carried out through a fixed reusable arterial blood sample syringe and its manual washing because it shows a minor incidence of the complications originated from technical manipulation as infection, pseudo-aneurysm, ischemia or thrombosis of radial artery or obstruction of the catheter.. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, in terms of adverse effects, of blood samples obtention using an arterial catheter with needless connector closed system or an arterial catheter with an arterial blood sample syringe.. Also a second purpose is to compare once a day (at the same time) the values of glycose blood levels between bedside glucometer determination of arterial catheter extraction and capillar puncture, and lab determination of glycose from venous puncture, in order to determinate fluctuation in ...

12-lead ST-segment monitoring vs single-lead maximum ST-segment monitoring for detecting ongoing ischemia in patients with...
BACKGROUND: 12-lead ECG monitoring of the ST segment is more sensitive than patients symptoms for detecting ischemia after thrombolytic therapy or catheter-based interventions, but it is unclear whether monitoring of the single lead showing maximum ST deviation would be as efficacious. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether monitoring all 12 ECG leads for changes in the ST segment is necessary to detect ongoing ischemia in patients with unstable coronary syndromes. METHODS: Continuous 12-lead ST segment monitoring was performed in 422 patients from the onset of myocardial infarction or during balloon inflation in catheter-based interventions until the patients discharge from the cardiac care unit. Computer-assisted techniques were used to determine (1) which lead showed the maximum ST deviation at the onset of myocardial infarction or during balloon inflation and (2) what proportion of later ischemic events were associated with ST deviation in this lead. RESULTS: The lead with the maximum ST ...

The aim of this study was to compare the complications, cost, and patients’ quality of life and satisfaction of three commonly used CVCs for chemotherapy, such as implanted venous port, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), and external non-tunneled central venous catheters (NTCs).Methods: A double-center prospective
Peripheral Intravenous Catheter Complications in Critically Ill Children: A Prospective Study | American Academy of Pediatrics
Six hundred fifty-four peripheral Teflon catheters in 303 pediatric intensive care unit patients were examined to determine complication rates and associated risk factors. Phlebitis, extravasation, and bacterial colonization occurred at rates of 13%, 28%, and 11%, respectively. Logistic regression of factors that increased phlebitis risk revealed infusion of hyperalimentation (odds ratio 2.9) or lorazepam (odds ratio 2.2) and catheter location (odds ratio 2.9) as the most important determinants of phlebitis risk. Age (≤1 year, odds ratio 2.0), catheter time in situ (≤72 hours, odds ratio 2.1), and infusion of antiepileptics (odds ratio 2.1) were the most important determinants of extravasation. Catheters were colonized most frequently with coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (51/54). Sepsis attributable to catheter colonization occurred in 1 patient. Duration of catheter placement (≥144 hours, odds ratio 5.8) was an important determinant of catheter colonization. Colonization risk increased ...
Central venous catheter infection for infants ( excluding neonates on the NICU ) and children
The central venous catheter (CVC) is essential for the management of children requiring long term treatment with intravenous therapies. Catheter types in use are peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC), tunnelled surgical lines (e.g. Broviac/Hickman) and implanted venous access devices (e.g. Port-a-Cath).. There are often a limited number of sites for CVC placement; therefore treatment of the infection without removal of the CVC is often necessary. When the infection is life threatening or there is a confirmed fungal infection or when conservative management of a bacterial catheter related blood stream infections (CRBSI) has failed (i.e. if the same organism is grown again, post-treatment) the CVC should be removed. The Microbiologist and Paediatric Consultant /Surgeon and medical staff must discuss the nature of the organism, the clinical condition and venous access limitations of the patient to ensure that line removal is warranted.. Infection is the major complication associated with ...

Background: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) related complications are common in catheterization patients. Many patients with PICC catheterization have diabetes mellitus. The data of incidence and risk factors in diabetic patients are scarce. Methods: A retrospective, multicenter study was performed on diabetic patients with PICC insertion from May 2017 to June 2018. A mobile App was used to collect patients and insertion information. We used univariable and multivariable analysis to examine the risk factors of PICC-related complications. Results: A total of 103 diabetic patients were included with 13 (12.6%) patients developed complications. In univariable analysis, marriage (|i|P|/i|=0.002), prior surgery (|i|P|/i||0.001) were associated with complications. Following logistic regression analysis, marriage (OR 0.13, 95 CI% 0.03-0.58, |i|P|/i|=0.007) and prior surgery (OR 2.30, 95% CI 2.33-42.68, |i|P|/i|=0.002) remained to be independent risk factors of complications.

Near-Infrared Imaging in Intravenous Cannulation in Children: A Cluster Randomized Clinical Trial | Articles | Pediatrics
Recently, various NIR devices have been launched to support intravenous cannulation. Although it is generally believed that visualization of veins with NIR might aid intravenous cannulation, thus far only 1 NIR device (the VeinViewer; Christie Medical Innovations, Memphis, TN) has been evaluated systematically.16-18 In the current study, we evaluated the clinical use of another such device at the operating rooms of a tertiary pediatric referral university hospital. The VascuLuminator was able to visualize the veins in more than 80% of the patients and was rated helpful by the performer in 21.6% of the cases. Nevertheless, the use of the device did not result in a significant improvement in success at first attempt or time to successful cannulation. Even when the NIR vascular imaging system was considered helpful, the rate of success at first attempt was not significantly higher.. In interpreting our findings, several aspects have to be taken into account. First, we chose a pragmatic, cluster ...

Bilateral axillary artery cannulation for severely calcified aorta and branches: a case report | Journal of Cardiothoracic...
Aortic valve surgery in patients with severely calcified aortas is technically challenging. Additionally, the choice of arterial cannulation site and whether to perform an aortic clamp to prevent neurological complications are poorly defined. We describe a patient with a severely calcified aorta and stenosis of its side branches. He successfully underwent aortic valve replacement with bilateral axillary artery cannulation and short-term moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest for cross-clamping of a severely calcified aorta to prevent neurological complications. Bilateral axillary artery cannulation and short-term moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest for cross-clamping of the porcelain aorta is a suitable option to prevent neurological complications in patients with a severely calcified aorta and stenosis of its side branches who need aortic valve replacement.
How to perform intravenous cannulation? - Dr. Numb
Performing Intravenous Cannulation. Health workers use different methods of cannulation depending on their individual preferences. But to find a method with which you are most comfortable with is the real thing.. Before touching the cannula, make sure that you follow certain steps to ensure complete hygiene. Do wash and sterilize your hands. Also, it would be better if the patient is politely informed that cannulation process is required. You are supposed to explain entire process to the subject, but just saying, "Itll be a little uncomfortable, but dont worry, therell be hardly any pain", will do fine too. Also, you should ensure taking consent from the subject before proceeding with cannulation.. Ready Equipments. You need to ensure all required equipments are in place and readily accessible. Gather non sterile globes, apron, cannula, cannula dressing, saline and syringe (10ml), gauze, alcohol swab, and tourniquet.. Find Right Vein, Right Spot. Before puncturing, you need to make sure that ...
Mortality during Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunt Placement | Anesthesiology | ASA Publications
Two 18-G peripheral intravenous catheters and a 20-G right radial arterial catheter were placed, and standard ASA monitoring was performed in the angiography suite. Further invasive monitoring was not necessary because of the stability of the patients chest pain with nitroglycerin patch, normal electrocardiography results, no history of congestive heart failure or arrhythmia, and the relatively hemodynamic stability of the TIPS procedure. Sedation was achieved with 50 micro gram *symbol* kg sup -1 *symbol* min sup -1 propofol, 2 mg midazolam in 0.5-mg increments, and 100 micro gram fentanyl in 25-micro gram boluses intravenously. Two hours after the start of the procedure, the patients systolic blood pressure decreased from 110 to 60 mmHg with an increase in heart rate to 110 beats/min. No ST-T changes were noted on electrocardiogram monitoring. This coincided with dilation of the Wallstent device. As the patient lost consciousness, ventilation was supported with 100% Oxygen2via mask followed ...
Arterial Access: Percutaneous Arterial Catheterization (Radial Arterial Line) | Neonatology: Management, Procedures, On-Call...
Two methods are described here using the radial artery, the most common site because of low complication rates. Methods can be adapted to other arteries. Another common site is the posterior tibial artery, as both the radial and posterior tibial arteries have good collateral circulation. Ulnar (to be used only in the absence of previous radial artery puncture attempt) and dorsalis pedis arteries are alternative sites. The temporal, brachial, and femoral arteries are not recommended. Axillary artery cannulation is very difficult and also not recommended. Temporal artery catheterization may have adverse neurologic sequelae. The brachial artery does not have good collateral flow and can have a lot of complications. Lateral or posterior wrist transillumination or Doppler/real-time ultrasound may be helpful in locating the artery in premature infants. Arterial catheterization requires patience ...

Local warming of the hand and lower arm improved successful peripheral venous cannulation and reduced insertion time | Evidence...
Venous cannulation is a common procedure with a relatively high first time failure rate-one that would be unacceptable in other invasive procedures. Most practitioners could relate at least a few "horror" stories of patients with difficult access, and no doubt, more than a few patients view cannulation with some trepidation. When troubleshooting difficult peripheral intravenous access, the use of warmth in various forms is frequently recommended. Lenhardt et al, in 2 studies, offer the first evidence of the superiority of this practice over standard insertion.. The designs of the studies were good. Randomisation was secure with an audit confirming the integrity of the allocation sequence. Loss to follow up was minimal. Efforts were made to blind the nurse anaesthetist and residents to group assignment; however, complete blinding was impossible due to the obvious change in hand temperature. Although some subjectivity exists in the method used to determine vein scores, outcomes such as time to ...

PDA Occlusion - Rocky Mountain Veterinary Cardiology
On the day the surgery is elected, your pet will be admitted in the morning, typically fasted for 8-10 hours with certain exceptions. Your pet will be medicated with slight sedation prior to anesthesia to alleviate pain and anxiety. Intravenous access in the form of an IV catheter will be placed for administration of medication, fluids, and other use, should immediate intravenous access be needed. The surgery will be performed in the morning and you will be notified once your pet is in recovery. Generally, your pet will stay one night in the hospital following surgery to ensure there are no lingering effects of the medication used during anesthesia, or any immediate complications associated with the surgery prior to being discharged.. Following surgery, a follow up exam is generally recommended in 10-14 days to assure adequate wound healing in the small incision in the groin area and suture removal. Generally, any medication for congestive heart failure may be discontinued at this time. Repeat ...
To the Editor:. We read with interest the article by Reggia, et al1, a monocentric study analyzing the efficacy and safety of switching from intravenous (IV) to subcutaneous (SC) formulation of abatacept (ABA) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The authors report a relatively high risk of disease relapse (27%) occurring in a mean of 11 weeks after switching to SC administration. The study did not find any significant predictive factor for a switch failure. The concern that patients with a higher body mass index could receive lower cumulative doses compared to weight-tiered monthly infusions, leading to a significant influence on treatment efficacy, was not confirmed by this study, or by previous dose-finding trials and non-inferiority randomized studies2,3,4.. We describe our experience based on a case series of 21 consecutive patients switching from ABA IV to SC administration at our center. The switch was motivated by difficulties in obtaining peripheral venous access, or to optimize ...
dehydratoin picc line - Ostomies - HealingWell.com Forum
Hi Jan:. As you know from previous posts I have a PICC line that I use just for hydration purposes.(one liter a day). I have had 3 lines over the past 9 months. Its easier to put in a replacement PICC line than the original line. Prior to this I was getting an angiocath each week in order to get the fluids. My arms got totally scarred up and are still healing from all the "sticks". Prior to the angiocaths I was in the ER every other week with severe dehydration. My thinking was to treat the symptoms, dehydration, and then try and treat the cause. I have felt much, much better since I have been adequately hydrated. I have returned to work, I have travelled to the islands and I have felt much stronger overall. I know the PICC line is not a permanent solution but I believe it is buying me time to try and find the ultimate answer. It sure beats feeling terrible and going to the ER. I have other issues than most, I have had 2/3 of my pancreas removed, etc. and I have never suffered from UC or ...

Indwelling arterial catheters are used routinely for continuous haemodynamic monitoring and obtaining repetitive blood samples. The radial artery is the most common site for cannulation. We report a case of forearm ischaemia after radial artery cannulation, which probably went unnoticed for several hours. The ischaemia resulted in an upper arm amputation. The use of a 22 gauge cannula and the use of ultrasound for cannulation may reduce the risk of this complication. We also emphasise the importance of good physical monitoring of patients who are under our care in the intensive care unit.. ...
