Arrow® Vascular Access Clinical Education

Device: Arterial Catheters

 

Arterial catheters are commonly used medical devices for hemodynamic monitoring and arterial blood gas sampling. They are inserted and cared for by a multidisciplinary team of clinicians. They can have complications during or post insertion. Studies have shown that arterial catheters have infection rates similar to central venous catheters.1-12 The CDC has specific infection prevention guidelines for arterial catheters. See what you can do to change practice in your facility and improve patient outcomes.
