PURPOSE: Extravasation incidence is exceptionally low; however, ulceration or necrosis occurs in severe cases, possibly requiring surgical treatment. Early extravasation signs and symptoms are not always evident on treatment day, and inflammation, which leads to ulceration or necrosis, may appear several days later. Therefore, to minimize damage, identification of high-risk groups is required. This study aims to investigate the relationship between subcutaneous edema which is an early extravasation sign, and skin surface temperature using a thermosensitive liquid crystal film...

Background: In an older population, insertion of peripheral intravenous catheterizations (PIVCs) are more difficult because of specific problems, such as physiological changes (particularly in veins and subcutaneous tissue), age-related diseases, malnutrition, or insufficient hydration. For older patients, it has been determined that best practices are to use a small gauge needle, avoid using a tourniquet, insert the needle almost flat to the skin (at a 10 to 20-degree angle), stabilize the vein, and monitor the patient's signs and symptoms in order to reduce risk (e...

BACKGROUND: Apheresis treatments require adequate venous access using peripheral intravenous (PIV) catheterization or central venous catheters (CVC). Ultrasound-guided PIV (USGPIV) can be used to decrease the need of CVC insertions for apheresis procedures. METHOD: A hybrid model of USGPIV and standard of care (SOC) for PIV access was developed. Nurses performed USGPIV on all patients considered for PIV access if felt SOC PIV access was not possible. Information was collected regarding nurses' confidence with access, number of attempts required, site of access, complications, and need for CVC...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is the most common mechanical circulatory support strategy used to treat pediatric patients presenting with low cardiac output or cardiogenic shock. While transthoracic central cannulation is feasible and mostly utilized for early postoperative support, peripheral cannulation is preferred as a primary strategy in the late postoperative period. Redo-sternotomy and venous cannulation are difficult to achieve in patients with occluded peripheral veins or complex venous anatomy like Glenn circulation...

Obtaining venous access for blood sampling or intravenous (IV) fluid delivery is an essential first step in patient care. However, success rates rely heavily on clinician experience and patient physiology. Difficulties in obtaining venous access result in missed sticks and injury to patients, and typically require alternative access pathways and additional personnel that lengthen procedure times, thereby creating unnecessary costs to healthcare facilities. Here, we present the first-in-human assessment of an automated robotic venipuncture device designed to safely perform blood draws on peripheral forearm veins...

Peripheral venous catheterization is a common technique in hospitals which is not always successful, resulting in multiple punctures and degradation of the vessels. This scenario, which we have termed 'difficult peripheral venous access', is associated to delays in care, obtention of samples or diagnosis, as well as a higher use of central catheters. This study intends to identify risk factors associated to the incidence of 'difficult peripheral venous access' in adults at hospital. We designed a systematic review of published studies (protocol PROSPERO 2018 CRD42018089160)...

Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) is required to distinguish unilateral from bilateral aldosterone sources in primary aldosteronism (PA), and cortisol is used for AVS data interpretation, but cortisol has several pitfalls. In this study, we present the utility of several other steroids in PA subtyping, both during AVS, as well as in peripheral serum. We included patients with PA who underwent AVS at University of Michigan between 2012 and 2018. We used mass spectrometry to simultaneously quantify 17 steroids in adrenal veins (AV) and periphery, both at baseline and after cosyntropin administration...
