Central line bundle

  1. I am involved in CLABSI project in my ICU. Any one can help me to get latest evidence based practice to prepare central line bundle,especially use of chlorhexidine in adult and neonatal patients.

    There is loads of information out there about clabsi, I find looking at the guidelines invaluable and then reviewing their references for the research information. Because I'm in Ireland I obviously use the SARI guidelines on prevention of blood stream infections you can download it at www.hpsc.ie. best practice is 70% alcohol and 2% chlorhexidine however bare in mind a small proportion of patients may have chlorhexidine allergies.

    Best of luck
