Power Hour Breakout

L6-1 — Go with the Flow: Preventing, Identifying and Treating Occlusive Events in Pediatric Vascular Access

Tuesday, September 18
8:00 AM - 8:30 AM
Location: B140-144
Presentation CE Credits: 1

Occlusion is the most common complication reported in pediatric CVAD management. Every day, CVAD occlusion results in venous thrombosis, infection, treatment delays, catheter failure and patient distress. Yet, CVAD patency is rarely prioritized.

This presentation will provide a summary of high quality evidence-based strategies to prevent, identify and successfully treat CVAD occlusion in pediatrics. It will also debut the results of an quality improvement initiative undertaken to promote CVAD occlusion management at two large, tertiary-referral pediatric hospitals in Australia. This presentation will provide a summary of the innovative and effective practices that can be immediately implemented in children's healthcare, to ensure children receive the best vascular access care available.
