The image is constructed by detecting the products of specimen interactions that are projected above the plane of the sample, such as backscattered electrons. Although SCANNING TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY also scans the specimen point by point with the electron beam, the image is constructed by detecting the electrons, or their interaction products that are transmitted through the sample plane, so that is a form of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.Shock, Septic: Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.Bacteria: One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.Colony Count, Microbial: Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.Cohort Studies: Studies in which subsets of a defined population are identified. These groups may or may not be exposed to factors hypothesized to influence the probability of the occurrence of a particular disease or other outcome. Cohorts are defined populations which, as a whole, are followed in an attempt to determine distinguishing subgroup characteristics.Drug Resistance, Fungal: The ability of fungi to resist or to become tolerant to chemotherapeutic agents, antifungal agents, or antibiotics. This resistance may be acquired through gene mutation.Hematologic Neoplasms: Neoplasms located in the blood and blood-forming tissue (the bone marrow and lymphatic tissue). The commonest forms are the various types of LEUKEMIA, of LYMPHOMA, and of the progressive, life-threatening forms of the MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES.Practice Guidelines as Topic: Directions or principles presenting current or future rules of policy for assisting health care practitioners in patient care decisions regarding diagnosis, therapy, or related clinical circumstances.

The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.Cost-Benefit Analysis: A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.Thoracic Surgical Procedures: Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.Catheterization, Swan-Ganz: Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.Skin: The outer covering of the body that protects it from the environment. It is composed of the DERMIS and the EPIDERMIS.Electrophoresis, Gel, Pulsed-Field: Gel electrophoresis in which the direction of the electric field is changed periodically. This technique is similar to other electrophoretic methods normally used to separate double-stranded DNA molecules ranging in size up to tens of thousands of base-pairs. However, by alternating the electric field direction one is able to separate DNA molecules up to several million base-pairs in length.Evidence-Based Medicine: An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care. It requires the judicious integration of best research evidence with the patient's values to make decisions about medical care. This method is to help physicians make proper diagnosis, devise best testing plan, choose best treatment and methods of disease prevention, as well as develop guidelines for large groups of patients with the same disease.

Extraction of abandoned, potentially dangerous lead with uncovered proximal ending: a case report and method description. (3/51)

In this study, we present the case of the extraction of a non-functioning, abandoned, chronically implanted nine year-old lead with proximal extended frayed ending, displaced spontaneously into the subclavian vein. The seemingly inaccessible lead was extracted from the body using the femoral approach. The lead was looped with a pig-tail catheter, standard guide-wire, and basket Dotter catheter, and the proximal ingrown ending was liberated. Finally, it was grasped with a basket catheter and its tip was liberated using oblique cut rotated internal sheath of a Femoral Working Station: using it as a Byrd dilator designed for subclavian approach. An additional difficulty was the risk of dislodging the correct endocardial lead in the pacemaker-dependent patient. The procedure indicates the necessity for the production of longer Byrd dilators designed for the femoral approach.  (+info)

Care of a central venous catheter depends on the type of catheter and whether a port is present. It is extremely important to follow the care instructions provided after a central venous catheter is in place to avoid infection or blockage. To prevent blockage, central venous catheters must be flushed routinely with a sterile solution, depending on the type of catheter. The catheter must be clamped securely and the tip covered tightly. Catheters that are connected to a port under the skin need less routine care, although most require flushing to prevent blockage.. A central venous catheter that has an exterior exit point must be kept dry during showers, and it must be protected from crimping or twisting caused by clothing or other articles rubbing against it. Occasionally, a central venous catheter may move out of its original location and require repositioning by the doctor. If it cannot be repositioned, the central venous catheter may have to be removed or reinserted. Any signs that the central ...

Abstract:. INTRODUCTION: Permanent central venous catheter use is associated with significant complications that often require their timely removal. An uncommon complication is resistant removal of the catheter due to adherence of the catheter to the vessel wall. This occasionally mandates invasive interventions for removal. The aim of this study is to describe the occurrence of this "stuck catheter" phenomenon and its consequences.. METHODS: A retrospective review of all the removed tunneled hemodialysis catheters from July 2005 to December 2014 at a single academic-based hemodialysis center to determine the incidence of stuck catheters. Data were retrieved from a prospectively maintained computerized vascular access database and verified manually against patient charts.. RESULTS: In our retrospective review of tunneled hemodialysis catheters spanning close to a decade, we found that 19 (0.92%) of catheters were retained, requiring endovascular intervention or open sternotomy. Of these, three ...

Central line complications are a major concern for hospitals and the healthcare sector, costing money and-most importantly-harm to patients. These complications are also highly preventable, as demonstrated by #simulation expert Dr. Yanick Beaulieu.. Central line (also "central venous") complications include placement failure of catheters and arterial punctures, as well as central line infections (CLIs). The reduction of CLIs, which is caused when a central venous catheter placed in a patients vein gets infected, is a particularly concern. For example, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) now requires that all eligible hospitals submit data elements for CLIs in an effort to improve patient care and patient safety.. Dr. Beaulieu-a cardiologist at Hôpital Sacré-Coeur de Montréal and is an Assistant Professor at Université de Montréal-believes the best way to reduce central line complications is through ultrasound-guided simulation-based #education. A renowned expert in ...

A central line placement is an invasive technical skill that is frequently performed in the hospital. Central lines may be placed in the neck, shoulder or groin area for lack of peripheral access, monitoring or introduction of multiple fluids.. Historically, resident physicians are trained by the "See one, Do one, Teach one" method. This means a resident typically watches one being performed by either an attending physician or a senior resident before doing one him or herself. Using this traditional method, trainees learn procedures vicariously through observation of their peers. If their peers have not been properly trained, mistakes are handed down from generation to generation of resident trainees. In addition, the use of ultrasound to place central lines could potentially minimize these risks.. If not done correctly, complications associated with central lines include pneumothorax (punctured lung), bleeding, hematoma, arterial puncture and infection. One study notes central venous catheter ...
Responding to feedback gains you converts who can win over others in a department adopting a new workflow. These converts are also an invaluable resource for explaining the benefits of change when new content processes are implemented across a company.. This is particularly true if you start with a pilot project that affects just one department (or a smaller segment of a big department). The pilot project enables a core group to develop a process and work out any kinks before expanding the changes across the organization. The participants in the pilot then act as "evangelists" who explain process change to other employees as the new workflow is rolled out to other groups.. These evangelists can gather feedback from the new groups and work with the process implementers to address department-specific challenges and any newly identified deficiencies in the overall process. Feedback from those who were not involved in the pilot can sometimes uncover issues the primary participants ...
Avoid Pressor Angst! Ordering that 3rd and 4th liter of fluid is an easy trap to fall into, but remember - 20-30cc/kg is usually no more than 2L of crystalloid. Excessive fluid administration often delays adjunctive intervention, can prolong the duration of hypotension, and may cause significant morbidity. We discuss "Pressor angst" as the mental hurdle that prevents a clinician from prescribing vasoactive therapy, often because it will define a patient as "critically ill" and increase the amount of resources they will require (central venous catheter placement, increased monitoring, and higher level of care at disposition). The patient likely needs these interventions, not an additional liter of crystalloid…. Dont delay vasoactives for central line placement. There is a growing body of evidence that peripheral vasoactive medication administration is safe3 It is appropriate to begin vasoactive medication peripherally early during resuscitation and then reassess the need for it after adequate ...

But I had to endure the fear in order to overcome it. ...
Central Venous Catheters (CVCs) are used to administer medications, intravenous fluids, and nutritional supplements. However, the insertion of a CVC creates a tiny opening in the skin, which raises the risk of infection. When these infections occur, they may spread to the bloodstream, which can lead to changes in blood pressure and fluid balance, organ dysfunction, and, in extreme cases, death. In fact, bacterial infections of the blood arising from central venous catheters are among the most common hospital-acquired infections in the intensive care unit.. ...
After surgery, you will have tubes outside and inside of your body.. ​​​​​​​Drains from your incision. You will have an incision where the surgeon placed your new kidney. This area of the skin is usually closed with stitches (sutures) or staples and covered with a dressing.. You may have a thin plastic tube called a drain from the incision. This drains extra fluid from the surgery area and prevents it from collecting around the new kidney.. The sutures or staples are removed a few weeks after the surgery and it will take up to 6 weeks for the incision to heal.. Central venous catheter. A central venous catheter (CVC) is a tube in your neck that ​goes to the large vein above your heart.

Central line insertion is an invasive procedure frequently performed in the intensive care unit (ICU). Patients in ICUs are at high risk of health care associated infections, including central line associated blood stream infections (CLAB), many of which are considered preventable. The Central Line Associated Bacteraemia in Intensive Care Units project (CLAB-ICU) is a NSW Statewide initiative that aims to improve patient outcomes, by reducing CLAB in ICUs. It advocates a standard sterile insertion practice. The project is overseen by the Intensive Care Co-ordination and MonitoringUnit (ICCMU) and the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC), with the co-operation of the NSW Ministry of Healths Quality and Safety Branch. All level 5 and 6 ICUs are participating.. CLAB ICU is the first collaborative between the ICCMU and CEC providing an opportunity for clinicians to drive change at the coal face. ...
When your port is not being used, you can bathe or swim, as long as your doctor says you are ready for activity. Check with your provider if you plan to do any contact sports, such as soccer and football.. Nothing will stick out of your skin when your port is not being used. This decreases your chance of infection.. About once a month, you will need to have your port flushed to help prevent clots. To do this, your provider will use a special solution.. Ports can be used for a long time. When you no longer need your port, your provider will remove it. ...

Comparison of three types of central venous catheters in patients with malignant tumor receiving chemotherapy Shirong Fang,1 Jinhong Yang,2 Lei Song,3 Yan Jiang,1 Yuxiu Liu4 1Department of Anesthesiology, 2Department of Oncology, Weifang People’s Hospital, Weifang, 3Intensive Care Unit, The Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University, Qingdao, 4Nursing College, Weifang Medical University, Weifang, People’s Republic of China Background: Central venous catheters (CVCs) have been an effective access for chemotherapy instead of peripherally intravenous catheters. There were limited studies on the choices and effects of different types of CVCs for chemotherapy. 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
OBJECTIVE--Major thromboses can occur in the venous system in association with central venous catheters. This usually necessitates removal of the catheter. METHODS--The effectiveness of low dose recombinant tissue type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) in combination with heparin was assessed in patients with central venous catheter associated thrombosis. RESULTS--In five patients, all suffering from cancer, a 5-7 day continuous infusion resulted in complete lysis of the thrombus without complications in three. In the other two patients moderately severe haemorrhage was observed with only partial lysis, of the thrombus. CONCLUSIONS--The infusion of heparin and rt-PA is potentially effective in thrombosis related to use of central venous catheters, but the risk of haemorrhage is not inconsiderable.. ...
The patient, who had a history of duodenocephalopancreasectomy, came to our attention when she developed bowel occlusion. She underwent emergency bowel resection due to bowel necrosis caused by adhesions. A central venous catheter (CVC) was then positioned in the right internal jugular vein. Since bleeding was recorded from the abdominal drainage, antithrombotic prophylaxis with enoxaparin was started on day 3. On postoperative day 4 the patients right arm became edematous. A Duplex ultrasound scan (DUS) showed mural thrombosis of the right internal jugular vein. A intravenous infusion of heparin sodium was started. A DUS performed 36 hours later showed recanalization of the vessel was almost complete. The edema in the arm gradually subsided and after 4 days had resolved. Enoxaparin was therefore substituted for heparin sodium. Successive DUS showed complete resolution of the thrombus, and the CVC was removed. Enoxaparin was replaced by warfarin continued for another 2 months.. ...
The use of US to reduce the number of complications related to vascular access for CVC placement has been evaluated in numerous previous studies in a variety of clinical settings. Recent Cochrane systematic reviews and meta-analyses summarize the current evidence for US guidance versus anatomic landmark techniques for CVC placement in the IJV [22], SV [23], and FV [23] with regard to complications of CVC placement. These meta-analyses included adult and pediatric patients treated in the intensive care unit or the operating room and compared conventional landmark techniques with techniques using static or real-time US or Doppler US. The primary outcome measure was the total rate of peri-interventional complications and adverse events.. For the IJV, 35 trials enrolling a total of 5108 patients were included in the meta-analysis [22]. The analysis demonstrated that the use of US for CVC placement in the IJV reduces the total rate of complications compared with conventional landmark techniques (US, ...
Also called a central line, a central venous catheter looks like an ordinary intravenous, but is inserted into a vein that goes directly to the heart.

Introduction: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) often requires a central venous catheter (CVC) for quick and safe vascular access. Currently, new technologies are available to protect the catheter insertion site, such as chlorhexidine-impregnated gel dressings (CIGD). Objectives: To evaluate local cutaneous effects associated with CIGD in patients undergoing HSCT. Methods: In this cross-sectional, prospective study, we evaluated 25 HSCT patients who had a CVC inserted. Patients were visited daily to monitor the CIGD changing procedures and evaluate abnormalities of the underlying skin after dressing removal. Findings: Local erythema was the most frequently detected abnormality, although usually transient and considered secondary to the mechanical trauma of dressing removal. The most severe lesions, consisting of areas of skin loss, erythematous plaques and/or vesicles were classified as skin irritation and presented in 11 (44%) of the 25 patients. An association test showed that skin

We identified five new studies for this update (six prior studies were included in the original review), bringing the number of eligible studies to 11, with a total of 2392 participants. We noted differences in methods used by the included studies and variation in heparin concentrations (10 to 5000 IU/mL), time to follow-up (1 to 251.8 days), and the unit of analysis used (participant, catheter, line access). Combined results fromthese studies showed fewer occlusions with heparin than with NS (risk ratio (RR) 0.70, 95%confidence interval (CI) 0.51 to 0.95; P = 0.02; 1672 participants; 1025 catheters from 10 studies; I² = 14%) and provided very low-quality evidence. We carried out subgroup analysis by unit of analysis (testing for subgroup differences (P = 0.23; I² = 30.3%). When the unit of analysis was the participant, results show no clear differences in all occlusions between heparin and NS (RR 0.79, 95% CI 0.58 to 1.08; P = 0.15; 1672 participants; seven studies).

You quickly have to kind of dissect is this a want or need; is it just that someone doesnt like the new workflow and therefore they put in a request to have it changed? Youve got to be careful you dont make too many of those, because it may not be the right change long-term.. Youll have a group of physicians say, I would like for the look or the feel or the workflow to be this way, but youve got to have a governing body. Somebody has to make decisions on behalf of the entire medical staff.. Optimization is really how do I wind up getting the return on investment and better patient experience - how do I tweak everything in every area as finely as you possible can tweak it? So we define ourselves right now probably at the tail end of our stabilization.. I dont want to say analytics is more strategic than your EMR, but its obviously very strategic. Without a robust ...

In this paper, detailed study is carried out to develop a new workflow from image acquisition to numerical simulation for the asphalt concrete microstructures. High resolution computed tomography scanned images are acquired and the image quality is improved using digital image processing techniques. Nonuniform illumination is corrected by applying an illumination profile to correct the background and flat-fields in the image. Distance map based watershed segmentation are used to segment the phases and separate the aggregates. Quantitative analysis of the micro-structure is used to determine the phase volumetric relationship and aggregates characteristics. The result of the quantitative analysis showed a very high level of reliability.

The commitment by these two global chemistry publishers to undertake new workflow integration with technology infrastructure provided by ORCID, a not-for-profit organization that provides unique identifiers for researchers and scholars, will enable both societies to provide unambiguous designation of author names within chemistry and across the broader sciences. This partnership with ORCID will resolve ambiguity in researcher identification caused by name changes, cultural differences in name presentation, and the inconsistent use of name abbreviations that is too often a source of confusion for those who must rely on the published scientific record.. By becoming signatories to the ORCID Open Letter, these two major chemical societies are voicing their intent to collect ORCID iDs for all submitting authors through use of the ORCID API, and to display such identifiers in the articles published in their respective society journals. The integration of such activities within the publishers ...

species isolated from central venous catheters (CVC). Our results showed that the 41 strong and moderate-biofilm-producing isolates presented a higher MBEC/MIC ratio for vancomycin than the 24 weak-biofilm-producing isolates, illustrating the importance of biofilm production ability and the difficulty in treating biofilm-related infections. The MBEC was significantly higher in moderate-biofilm-producing isolates than in weak-biofilm-producing isolates (p < 0.001) and in strong-biofilm-producing isolates than in weak-biofilm-producing isolates (p = 0.001). The correlation between the MIC and the MBEC was poor. Based on our results, we recommend that bacterial biofilms be suspected in all cases of CVC infection ...

Dr. Garpestad says, "We interviewed everyone to see how they maintained the central line, and when we found one practice that was proven to work well, we were able with hospital leaderships encouragement to roll it out in other parts of the hospital.". The best example of how Tufts MC found and disseminated best practice involves the hospital-wide educational roll-out to all providers on how to keep the central lines "ports" or "hubs" sterilized.. Therese Hudson-Jinks, R.N., MSN, Tufts MCs Chief Nursing Officer and V.P. of patient care services, says, "Whenever we administer fluid or medications through the central line, we scrub the hub, meaning we really clean that port in a certain, prescribed way for at least 15 seconds. We dont swipe it with alcohol - we scrub it." In an effort to keep unused ports clean and ready for use, Tufts MC rolled out alcohol swab-caps, which are protective caps that have alcohol soaked gauze inside of them and that are placed on unused ports on central venous ...
A central line has changed our world. First we had to enlist the help of 3 great nurse (very thankful for their help through a scary time). The stress from just each and every time Annabel had a fever of 100.5 and over. I referred to the central line as a time bomb. One minute you could relax and make plans and in the next instant you were being transferred to a hospital. Any infection in your line (blood infections) can be life threatening. Some of the antibiotic that she had to be on had terrible side effects. The hit your liver suffers with all these infections and just the TPN/Lipids is bad enough. Even though some saw Annabels smiles when they said Hi to her we saw a very tired Annabel. She just didnt recover like her old self. Each time she became weaker and we saw through her therapies she couldnt do what she had worked so hard to accomplish prior to her central line/TPN lifestyle. Yes it helped her survive for the last couple years but it brought her closer than ever to not surviving ...

A 69-year-old woman with end-stage renal failure discontinued continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis and commenced temporary haemodialysis because of resistant peritonitis. Right internal jugular vein haemodialysis catheter placement was performed. The cuffed, tunnelled haemodialysis catheter was inserted using the modified Seldinger technique. When haemodialysis was initiated the following day, blood could not be aspirated from the catheter and the patient complained of central chest pain during the aspiration. Subsequent venography and computed tomography scan of the thorax showed that the catheter was placed extraluminally into the posterior mediastinum. The importance of a chest radiograph after placement of a central venous catheter is highlighted by this case report. Subtle deviations in catheter position from normal should alert the physician to the possibility of catheter misplacement and lead to further investigation ...
Central venous catheters (CVCs) are thin, flexible tubes that are inserted through the skin into a large vein, often in the arm or chest. The tube can then be used to give fluids, medicine and nutrition to chronically and critically ill patients. However, CVCs pose a significant risk of infection by providing a way for…
Objective To investigate if the respiratory variation of the inferior vena cava diameter (?DIVC) and right internal jugular vein diameter (?DRIJ) are correlated in mechanically ventilated patients. patients were responders and 32 measurements showed agreement (weighted Kappa = 0.65). The area under the ROC 1561178-17-3 IC50 curve was 0.903 (95%CI 0.765 - 0.973; cut-off value = 11.86). Conclusion The respiratory variation of the inferior vena cava and the right internal jugular veins are correlated and showed significant agreement. Evaluation of right internal jugular vein distensibility appears to be a surrogate marker for inferior vena cava vein distensibility for evaluating fluid responsiveness. Research Ethics Committee approved this study (no 38077214.1.0000.5335 - Plataforma Brasil) without the need for a consent form. Measurements A single critical care physician with a certificate of ultrasound evaluation (basic competence),(18) performed all of the ultrasound examinations (Siemens ...

A Pilot Study in Cancer Patients With Central Venous Catheter (CVC) Associated Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in the Upper Extremity Treated With Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH) and Apixaban (Catheter 3)
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. Conclusion: For
Improved life expectancy of the global population plays a major role in the rising demand for all medical catheters. Over a 100 different types of catheters are available on the market at the moment; involved amongst others in infusion, cardiovascular, renal, haemodynamic monitoring and neurological contexts. Catheters, specifically central venous catheters (CVCs), are responsible for more device-related infections than any other "internal" medical device. As an illustration, catheter-related blood stream infections (CRBSIs) are both common and costly. Approximately 3 million central lines are placed in the United States each year; resulting in 150,000 cases of CRBSIs annually. In addition, 90% of all CRBSIs occur in clinical situations in which a temporary central venous catheter was used. The cost of treating CRBSIs annually in the United States ranges from $300 million to $2 billion a year ...

In this secondary analysis of the ELVIS study, we found that inserting a DC by GWE (as opposed to VPI) did not increase the risk of DC colonization but was associated with a higher risk of DC dysfunction. The risk of DC dysfunction was more than twofold higher when the previous DC was malfunctioning and had been replaced by GWE rather than by VPI.. In a pilot study Palmer et al. demonstrated that guidewire contamination during central line placement predisposes to subsequent colonization of the inserted catheter [19]. This is why replacement by GWE of a non-tunnelled catheter that is suspected to be infected is discouraged, but it may be used to replace a malfunctioning catheter when there is no evidence of catheter infection [14].. Three recent observational studies of critically ill adult patients, designed to assess the impact of catheter replacement by GWE on the risk of infections, yielded conflicting results [20-22]. In a prospective multicentre survey of 1598 central venous catheters, ...

Background: Detection of early stage ovarian cancer offers the best opportunity to reduce mortality. In the attempt to improve Ovarian Cancer prognosis there is a sheer need for new sensitive and specific early detection biomarkers.. We have recently proposed a new workflow to overcome the limitations that characterize serum protein biomarker discovery. A new class of hydrogel (NIPAm) nanoparticle, with the incorporation of an affinity bait (AAC), had been developed and tested, showing to successfully separate from albumin, harvest, concentrate, and protect from degradation low abundance and LMW potential protein biomarkers, amenable for downstream mass spectrometry (LTQ-Orbitrap) analysis. Applying such workflow to a set of 40 serum samples from ovarian cancer patients and benign controls a list of 163 differentially expressed peptides was generated.. Our novel nanoparticle technology provides a rapid and near 100% efficient means to capture and greatly amplfy the resting concentration of LMW ...
MATERIALS AND METHODS: To validate the model outcomes, we used supine average arterial and venous extracerebral blood flow, obtained by using phase-contrast MR imaging from 49 individuals with stenosis in the acquisition plane at the level of the disc between the second and third vertebrae of the left internal jugular vein, 20 with stenosis in the acquisition plane at the level of the disc between the fifth and sixth vertebrae of the right internal jugular vein, and 38 healthy controls without stenosis. Average data from a second group of 10 healthy volunteers screened with an echo-color Doppler technique were used to evaluate flow variations due to posture change. ...

Since many of the patients in an intensive care unit suffer from disorders of hemostasis, bleeding is a main concern applying central venous catheters. Even if there are some data indicating elevated international normalized ratio may not increase the risk of bleeding no clear cut-off has been defined so far. An INR , 1.5 is generally considered to increase the risk of bleeding. Furthermore, many authors consider platelets below 50 x 109 /l as a contra-indication to CVC cannulation, since there are some data this may increase the risk of bleeding. Therefore platelet transfusion before venous puncture is suggested. In our clinical experience INR , 1.5 and platelets , 50 x 109 /l do not correlate with increased risk of bleeding. The aim of this study is to demonstrate, that coagulopathy, defined by INR and platelet count, is not decisive for bleeding ...

Non-catheter-related venous thromboembolism (VTE) is less common in children than in adults. Although the presence of a central venous catheter is the most common cause of venous thrombosis in children, infection and inflammation, malignancy, hypercoagulability, dehydration, and certain sites of normal variant and pathologic anatomic narrowing all predispose to VTE in children. The mortality and morbidity of VTE vary according to the underlying cause, including whether malignancy is present. Various modalities including ultrasonography (US), computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging can be used to image VTE, with some modalities better suited to particular parts of the body and clinical scenarios than others ...
Staphylococcus epidermidis is one of the most common causes of hospital-acquired infections, due largely to its ability to form robust biofilms. Accumulation-associated protein (Aap) is involved in bacterial accumulation and also binds epithelial cells. Schaeffer et al. (p. 214-226) demonstrate that Aap is essential for infection in a central venous catheter model following systemic inoculation of S. epidermidis. Binding assays with recombinant Aap domains confirm that the N-terminally located A domain facilitates initial attachment to abiotic surfaces, likely explaining the requirement for Aap in vivo. These data demonstrate that Aap contributes to virulence and suggest functions for the protein during both commensal growth and infection. ...

These surgically placed tubes let kids get blood drawn and receive intravenous (IV) medicines and fluids without repeated needle sticks.
They used the central line to take blood from my body. The blood went through the machine, which separated it into layers. They programmed the machine to take out the stem cell layer, which it did. It cant take out just the stem cells, but also takes some red and white cells and platelets along with the cells, but not too many. Blood was returned to my body through the other "nozzle" on my central line. It wasnt painful at all. I was told to let them know if I felt any tingling sensation in my fingers or around my lips, which would indicate a low calcium level. I didnt have that, but if I had they would have given me more calcium. ...

Controversy surrounds the role of central venous catheters (CVCs) impregnated with antimicrobial agents in the prevention of catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI). We reviewed the current literature to evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobial-impregnated CVCs for preventing CRBSI. Eleven randomized studies published in article form were identified that included a control group that received nonimpregnated CVCs. We evaluated study methodologies, inclusion of key patient characteristics, use of clinically relevant end points, and molecular-relatedness studies. Review of these 11 trials revealed several methodological flaws, including inconsistent definitions of CRBSI, failure to account for confounding variables, suboptimal statistical and epidemiological methods, and rare use of clinically relevant end points. This review also failed to demonstrate any significant clinical benefit associated with the use of antimicrobial-impregnated CVCs for the purpose of reducing CRBSI or improving ...
Millions of central venous catheters are inserted annually worldwide. Because the most common serious complication of these catheters is bloodstream infection, several methods to minimize this risk have been investigated in randomized controlled trials. Aside from standard aseptic technique and precautions to minimize infusate contamination, methods have included the use of heparin-bonded catheters, subcutaneous antimicrobial catheter cuffs, tunneled insertion, cutaneous antimicrobial gels, various approaches to site dressings, and scheduled catheter replacement. Systematic reviews of randomized trials of many of these techniques have recently been published. However, studies of antiseptic or antibiotic-impregnated catheters have emerged more recently because these catheters logically represent a potentially beneficial strategy for minimizing catheter-related infection. This meta-analysis by Veenstra and colleagues convincingly shows that catheters coated with chlorhexidine and silver ...

Many different risk factors for CRI in intensive care patients have been reported in the literature [3, 4, 8, 9, 11-13]. These include insertion site, duration of catheterization, type of dressing, type of catheter, frequent manipulations, improper aseptic techniques, number of catheter lumens, type of topical antiseptic solution used and use of the catheter for TPN. The relative importance of one risk factor over another is diffucult to assess given that in most studies only univariate analysis has been performed and estimates of the risk of each factor has not been attempted. We performed a logistic regression to assess the major determinants of CRI and found that the independent predictors of CRI were catheter insertion site, duration of catheterization and antibiotic (glycopeptide) usage.. In our study infection rates of catheters inserted into jugular vein and subclavian vein were 22.7%, 11.9% respectively (p = 0.005). The CVCs inserted to the jugular vein were associated with approximately ...

Figures 1 and 2 show the relevant anatomy of the subclavian vein. It may be cannulated on the right or the left side. The chapter shows cannulation on the right side. On the right, the subclavian vein courses behind the medial third of the clavicle and joins the internal jugular vein to drain into the superior vena cava. It lies anterior and inferior to the subclavian artery. The dome of the right lung lies behind the vessels. Ultrasound is used to confirm the patency of the vein and location. The same modified Seldinger technique is used as described in the preceding Chapter 133. The patient is placed in a supine position. A rolled towel or sheet is placed in the interscapular area to allow the shoulder to drop to the side away from the infraclavicular site (figures 1 and 3). The patient is placed in a 20-degree Trendelenburg position (head down) in order to minimize the risk of air embolism and increase the size of the vein. The head is turned slightly to the opposite side. After installation ...
