Hope all is good
I work as a patient safety officer in a tertiary center. We had adverse events related to our Needless IV Connectors (Nano-Clave) that we use to decrease our CLABSI rates. The events were mainly related to occlusions and increase in CVP readings.
I would appreciate knowing from you guys about the connectors you recommend and use in your hospitals. I have included the below questions for your kind attention.
- Do you use Split Septum, Mechanical Valves, or Intraluminal Protection Connector? What type do you recommend?
- What brands do you use exactly?
- Have you encountered any problems related to occlusions or increase in pressure readings (CVP)
Looking forward to hearing from you.
