Peds. Pre-Conference Workshop Attendees: Paving the Way with Early Detection Technology for PIVIE Harm Reduction

Friday, September 14
12:15 PM - 1:15 PM
Location: Room B230-233

Infiltration and extravasation are common peripheral IV complications in pediatric patients. A recent study found that more than 50 percent of the IVs for neonates admitted to a NICU developed complications with 67 percent of those complications caused by infiltration. Hourly IV site assessments are crucial for detecting early symptoms of infiltration however, challenges exist.

Over lunch, panelists from the VAT and PICU units at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, will discuss a quality improvement project including technology providing continuous monitoring of peripheral IVs to recognize infiltration/extravasation events (PIVIEs) early. This panel presentation will review phases of a first-of-its-type project to reduce serious harm caused by these events. With methodical and successful implementation, this team is paving the way for a new standard of care reducing harm from this hospital-acquired condition (HAC).
