Mitigating the Risk of Post-insertion Catheter Complications through Evidence-Based Vascular Access Management

Sunday, September 16
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location: Union Station Ballroom B

Over the last twenty-five years a great deal of attention has been given to improving insertion related practices for central vascular access devices. And while these interventions have decreased insertion risks, more clinical evidence is required to proactively manage and reduce the risk of post-insertion complications such as intraluminal catheter occlusion and blood stream infections. This sixty minute presentation will feature three, evidence-based outcome studies which highlight the necessity for best practices, differentiated product technology and procedures to mitigate the risk of post-insertion catheter-related complications.
