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 ]]> 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 Wed 24 Apr 2019 12:34:01 AEST ]]> Assessing core outcomes in graduates: psychometric evaluation of the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit-Nursing Knowledge and Skills Test http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:10842 Wed 18 Feb 2015 10:35:46 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 ]]> Intravascular device administration sets: replacement after standard versus prolonged use in hospitalised patients—a study protocol for a randomised controlled trial (The RSVP Trial) http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:14905 Thu 13 Jul 2017 09:42:52 AEST ]]> Peripheral intravenous catheter duration and failure in paediatric acute care: A prospective cohort study http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:13937 0.05). The median dwell time of PIVCs that failed was significantly longer than the PIVCs that did not fail (44.0 vs 25.5 h; P = 0.002). Less than half (53/113, 46.9%) of failed catheters were replaced with a new PIVC. Conclusions: Observed failure rates were high for a clinically essential device; however, there is no established rate of acceptability against which the results can be benchmarked against to facilitate effectiveness of practice. Many PIVCs appeared to remain in place longer than needed. Dressing and securement practice was homogenous. PIVC placement in the antecubital fossa should be minimised to reduce the risk of paediatric PIVC failure.]]> Thu 12 Mar 2015 09:09:44 AEST ]]> Peripherally InSerted CEntral catheter dressing and securement in patients with cancer: the PISCES trial.
