Very good information on vascular access infection prevention and should be practiced in all dialysis centres.

Description

Hemodialysis (HD) patients are at great risk for infection because of hemodialysis procedures and comorbidities. Frequently, episodes of bacteremia are associated with vascular access devices (VADs) in the hemodialysis population. Hemodialysis VADs include arteriovenous fistula (AVF), arteriovenous graft (AVG), or a CVAD placed for dialysis. This presentation will explain the different VADs used in hemodialysis and their respective infection rates. The role of the infusion nurse in decreasing infection rates will be described.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Explain the different HD VAD options.
2. Rank the devices in terms of increasing infection rates.
