62. Medication impregnated dressings for central venous catheters reduce the number of bloodstream infections, but the quality of the research is low

dressings halved the frequency of bloodstream infections per 1000 patient days compared with standard polyurethane dressings (RR 0.51, 95% CI 0.33 to 0.78). This was from a meta-analysis of four studies. There was no difference in skin irritation or damage between chlorhexidine gluconate-impregnated dressings and polyurethane dressings. However, this outcome was only examined in two studies in children and new born infants. There was not enough evidence to assess other devices or dressings (...) , such as those impregnated with silver or iodine. What does current guidance say on this issue? NICE guidance from 2012 recommends that the central venous catheter insertion site and surrounding skin should be decontaminated during dressing changes using chlorhexidine gluconate in 70% alcohol, and that a sterile transparent semipermeable (polyurethane) membrane dressing should cover the vascular access device insertion site. NHS England’s “epic3” guidance similarly recommends cleaning the skin

The pathognomonic lesion is the burrow, which is a linear intra-epidermal tunnel produced by the moving mite and appears as short wavy greyish/ white threadlike elevations of 2-10 mm in length. Burrows are difficult to find if there is excoriation or secondary eczematisation. Nodular lesions may also be seen especially on the penis and scrotum in men, buttocks, groin, and the axillary (...) four days before treatment should be decontaminated by washing at high temperature (60°C) and drying in a hot dryer, by dry-cleaning, or by sealing in a plastic bag for at least 72 hours 5,9 .

randomised controlled trials in a total of 3,674 adults and children in secondary care settings. Results are mixed with some evidence showing reductions in rates of bacterial colonisation and the number of CRBSIs compared with standard dressings in patients with venous or arterial catheters, and some showing no difference between Biopatch and standard care. K Ke ey uncertainties y uncertainties around the evidence and technology are whether it is as effective at reducing the number of CRBSIs (...) the catheter. After catheter insertion, a sterile transparent semipermeable membrane dressing should be used to cover the insertion site. This should be changed every 7 days, or sooner if moisture collects under the dressing or there are signs of infection. The same skin decontamination process should be used whenever the dressing is changed. NICE also advices maintenance of the catheter itself by cleaning it with 2% CHG in 70% alcohol before accessing the system and also flushing and locking the catheter

, a field hospital was shelled 20 times in two days. In Aleppo, military aircraft completely destroyed the Children’s Hospital and attempted to destroy all the other well known hospitals in the city. This necessitated the construction of secret field hospitals given secret names to try to continue treating the wounded.
