Session Description:

While significant progress has been made in the recognition and mitigation of risks related to centrally dwelling catheters, this presentation takes into consideration the intrinsic risks associated with peripheral vascular, arterial and non-vascular percutaneous devices. We will explore the evidence surrounding non-CVC device risks and complications, published standards and guidelines, evolving device management practices, and data illustrating the clinical and economic burden of peripheral intravenous catheter-related complications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify risks associated with peripheral, arterial, and non-vascular percutaneous devices.
  • Discuss changes in standards and guidelines impacting care and maintenance practice.
  • Explore the clinical and economic burden of peripheral intravenous catheter-related complications.
