Lecture Overview:  There are multiple factors to consider when placing a device in the ICU or caring for an existing device. Diagnosis, previous medical history, length of intended therapy, potential for microbial colonization, and multiple dwelling catheters are just a few of the factors that will be covered throughout this presentation. This presentation mostly focuses on the Standards put forth by INS (Infusion Nurses Society) as well as the SHEA (Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America) Compendium. It is important to understand what each device is and how they are used in order to make the best decision for each patient.

Lecture Objectives:

Ø  Review current evidence that applies to device selection in the ICU.

Ø  Consider factors specific to the critically ill patient population

Ø  Identify proper device selection based on patient’s needs

Ø  Understand importance of ongoing assessment post device insertion
