THE DIFFERENCE IS

PUTTING PRECISION
TO WORK

Infuse life, prevent complications

Potential complications can make intravenous therapy lethal. It is important to know the risks and then integrate the right practices in vascular access management routine.


It takes several hands to manage vascular access successfully. Integrating a set of best practices into your IV care routine is a sure way to minimize complications.

Experts from around the globe describe the intersection between patient and healthcare worker safety, focusing on techniques to improve both occupational and public health.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe the current global impact of bloodborne disease
  • Describe occupational exposure incidents for needlesticks and sharps injuries
  • Define safety as a function of focus for both patient and health worker, to reduce overall bloodborne disease
  • Provide guidance on the importance of prevention programs including use of safer medical devices, immunization/vaccination programs, and safe clinical practices
  • Illustrate an effective pathway for reporting exposure incidents and injuries
  • Define processes for post-exposure medical treatment and prophylaxis
  • Share global experiences from key stakeholders responsible for sharps safety and public health programs around the world

Vascular access devices are touched numerous times, from insertion to removal?

Problems like infections and occlusions, dislodgement and phlebitis, may arise leading to vascular access device failure.

Occlusion

  • A blocked catheter can prevent infusion or injection of a solution into a catheter and aspiration of blood from a catheter.1
  • Occlusion is likely to happen when an infusion runs dry, flushing is inadequate, clamping sequence is improper or incompatible medications are infused.1

Dislodgement

  • Catheter movement into or out of the insertion site may lead the tip to move to a suboptimal position, impeding continuous infusion, leading to edema, pain and change in skin color.2

Phlebitis

  • The use of irritating solutions, not allowing skin antisepsis to dry, inadequate haemodilution, improper catheter size or stabilization technique, breaks in aseptic technique and non-occlusive dressing could cause phlebitis i.e inflammation of vein leading to pain, tenderness and erythema.3

Infiltration and extravasation

  • Inappropriate insertion site, inadequate stabilization, difficult access history, medications that alter pain sensation, the disease that produces a change in the vasculature, use of deep veins with insufficient catheter length could all cause infiltration or extravasation.4

Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI)

  • The catheter becomes the source of the infection and develops erythema, edema, pain, tenderness, and fever.5 Non-intact dressing or poor choice of insertion site can also lead to CRBSI.6

Did you know that modern lifesaving IV therapy can also cause harm when done wrong?

It is estimated that 60-90% of hospitalized patients require IV therapy1

It is a mammoth problem that can add to your costs, bring down patient satisfaction, affect the morale of the medical team and, worse, even tarnish the reputation of your hospital.

Here you can quickly assess the enemy. And pick up the primary weapons to bring you victory against vascular access management complications.

Peripheral Intravenous Catheter (PIVC)

insertion is the most frequently performed invasive procedure7

  • Up to 50% of
    PIVC demand a replacement
    before therapy completion.7
  • In India, 31.4% of PIVCs
    experience phlebitis as a
    complication.8

Central Vascular Access Devices (CVADs)

are used for necessary clinical interventions and potentially considered a lifesaving procedure9

  • Up to 25% of paediatric
    CVDs in the USA need
    removal prior to therapy
    completion.10
  • As per data in the
    USA around 82 patients
    acquire a CLABSI everyday.11
  • As per study data in the USA Central
    line-associated bloodstream infections
    (CLABSIs) could be life-threatening
    for 1 out of 4 infected patients.12
