Catheter hub disinfection

Increased infection rates are associated with use of invasive devices, in particular, central lines. For years, dialysis staff across hospitals and clinics have focused on initiatives to reduce bloodstream infections in haemodialysis patients. Catheter related blood stream infections (CRBSIs) have substantial associated morbidity and mortality. They are also expensive, requiring significant additional costs per episode.

ClearGuard™ HD antimicrobial barrier caps and Tego™ Needlefree connectors, help healthcare professionals to protect patients with haemodialysis catheters by reducing CRBSIs.
