"A single CLABSI can change the course of a patient's treatment or worse, be life threatening," said Brian Pedlar, CEO of Covalon. "We need to be more proactive when it comes to protecting all patients, especially those requiring long-term I.V. access for survival. Central line–associated bloodstream infections ("CLABSIs") have increased by 45% during the COVID-19 pandemic, and by 65% in ICUs.1"
Patients receiving parenteral nutrition (PTN) via central venous catheter (CVC) are at an increased risk of CLABSI. For these patients, stable and safe intravenous access is an absolute requirement for nutritional delivery and survival, both in the hospital and at home, often for months or years at a time.2.
