Secondary outcome [1] 263552 0
The frequency of catheter-related bloodstream infections are defined as bacteraemia/fungaemia in a patient with an intravascular catheter with at least one positive blood culture obtained from a peripheral vein, and/or clinical manifestations of infection (i.e. fever, chills, and/or hypotension), and no apparent course for the bloodstream infection except the catheter. Where this cannot clearly be determined the information will be reviewed by an independent reviewer.
