The risk of blood exposure for the vascular access practitioner has long been under-emphasized. This presentation will review those risks, the responsibilities of developing a culture of safety in the work environment and technologies available today to protect both the patient and the healthcare worker. Over 3 million PIV's are placed each year in the US and for the first time dedicated studies looking at the use of these devices are being developed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss historical overview of PIV catheters.
  • Identify PIV catheter insertion and management "at risk" activities.
  • Recall bloodborne pathogen exposure risk with PIVs and recent published data.
  • Discuss blood exposure management and cost.
  • Identify practices and behaviors to prevent or decrease risk of blood exposure associated with PIVs.
