We are presently using ethanol locks for select high CLABSI risk clients, with a dwell time of 24 hours. We now have a client that I'd like to leave the ethanol in for 48 h but am having difficulty finding literature describing a longer than 24 h dwell. If anyone has information or experience in this can you kindly contact me or reply on this forum?
