Summary
Brief summary
This study objectified to evaluate the efficiency of gauze and tape and transparent polyurethane film dressings to cover central venous catheters, and for this we compare gauze and tape and transparent polyurethane dressings. Analyzed outcome variables were: 1 - bloodstream infection or bacteremia related to catheter; 2 - dressing material set to the patient’s skin; 3 - secretion absorption by the dressing material; and 4 - local reaction development to the dressing material.
