Antimicrobial Locking Solutions for Central Vascular Access Devices (CVAD)
New evidence strongly supports the use of antimicrobial locking solutions to reduce unacceptably high rates of central line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI). The 2016 Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice will address this new evidence with an expanded standard on flushing and locking. This good news, however, presents some obstacles. Before making clinical practice decisions, we invite you to participate in this discussion of the various locking solutions used, along with the good and not-so-good aspects of their use. This 90-minute videoconference will include a presentation on the current evidence and time for questions and further discussion on these issues.
