I am interested in locating indiviudals/institutions that have extended (or may be considering) the max hang time for intermittent IV tubing from 24 to 72 hours. Have you implemented this change and if so, have you measured or been able to correlate any changes in CABSI with this change? Please email me off the list at [email protected]. No need to re-state INS position on this issue. I am investigating - at a very preliminary point - Â how actual practice MAY be challenging this non evidence based recommendation.
