Abstract

Bloodstream infections related to the use of central venous catheters are an important cause of patient morbidity, mortality and increased heath care costs. A meta-analysis of eight randomised, controlled trials was published in 2002 and suggested that the incidence of bloodstream infection is significantly reduced in patients with central lines who receive chlorhexidine gluconate for insertion-site skin disinfection. This paper analyses the evidence obtained and suggests that further studies are required to obtain conclusive data, especially for catheters with more than a ten-day stay.
