Only tenderness and the Catney (one of pain, tenderness, erythema or palpable cord) and Rittenberg scales (one of erythema, swelling, tenderness or pain) had acceptable (more than two-thirds, 66.7%) levels of inter-rater agreement. Conclusions: Inter-rater agreement for phlebitis assessment signs/symptoms and scales is low. This likely contributes to the high degree of variability in phlebitis rates in literature. We recommend further research into assessment of infrequent signs/symptoms and the Catney or Rittenberg scales. New approaches to evaluating vein irritation that are valid, reliable and based on their ability to predict complications need exploration.]]> Wed 29 Jun 2016 08:28:48 AEST ]]> Skin colonization at peripheral intravenous catheter insertion sites increases the risk of catheter colonization and infection http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:29234 Tue 26 Nov 2019 13:46:37 AEST ]]> Molecular Comparison of Bacterial Communities on Peripheral Intravenous Catheters and Matched Skin Swabs http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:18292 Thu 21 Jun 2018 12:20:53 AEST ]]> Culture-independent detection of chlorhexidine resistance genes qacA/B and smr in bacterial DNA recovered from body sites treated with chlorhexidine-containing dressings http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:23133 Thu 15 Mar 2018 09:23:42 AEST ]]> Phlebitis Signs and Symptoms with Peripheral Intravenous Catheters: Incidence and Correlation Study http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26281 Mon 16 Jul 2018 09:12:47 AEST ]]> Draft Genome Sequence of Roseomonas mucosa Strain AU37, Isolated from a Peripheral Intravenous Catheter http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22447 Fri 21 Apr 2017 14:08:24 AEST ]]> Chlorhexidine gluconate or polyhexamethylene biguanide disc dressing to reduce the incidence of Central-Line-Associated Blood Stream Infection: a feasibility randomised controlled trial (the CLABSI trial) http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22435 Fri 20 Apr 2018 13:43:55 AEST ]]> Postinfusion Phlebitis: Incidence and Risk Factors http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:14515 Fri 08 Apr 2016 09:46:22 AEST ]]> Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of Clinically Indicated Versus Routine Replacement of Peripheral Intravenous Catheters http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:11988 Fri 08 Apr 2016 09:37:34 AEST ]]> Securing All intraVenous devices Effectively in hospitalised patients—the SAVE trial: study protocol for a multicentre randomised controlled trial http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:17353 Fri 08 Apr 2016 08:52:15 AEST ]]> Dressings and securements for the prevention of peripheral intravenous catheter failure in adults (SAVE): a pragmatic, randomised controlled, superiority trial http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26741 Fri 07 Feb 2020 13:48:12 AEST ]]>
