The researchers concluded that the routine use disinfection caps mitigated the central-line associated bloodstream infection of high-risk oncology patients. The article is significant as it directly addresses the question, “In adult patients in an acute care setting, does utilization of disinfecting caps on the hubs of central lines reduce the number of central line-associated bloodstream infections?”. Kamboj et al. (2015) conducted an investigation on routine and passive used of disinfection caps on central line-associated bloodstream infection and found that indeed disinfection caps largely reduced the infection and contamination of blood. This article directly addresses the topic by concluding that the disinfection caps were reduced the infection contamination of the central line-associated bloodstream infection.

Strategies to Prevent Central Line–Associated Bloodstream Infections in Acute Care Hospitals: 2014 Update. Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, 35(7), 753–771. The purpose of the above article is to provide recommendations for implementing strategies for the prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI). The research primarily focused on the prevention of the infection for acute care hospitals. The researchers approached the prevention mechanisms from two different angles: the general prevention mechanism for acute hospital and the prevention strategies specifically targeting situations where CLABSIs are not associated with the adoption of basic practices (Marschall et al., 2014). Special recommendations were also given to interventions that were most likely to be associated with CLABSI where the concern of the risk had significant undesirable outcomes for the hospital. These included situation where the quality of evidence was low, or for a selected population or evidence supports that intervention in select settings. The study concluded that the insertion, location, maintenance and the disinfection of the CVCs play a crucial role in the prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infection increased with the adoption of the individual prevention mechanisms. The article is relevant to the topic as it suggests that disinfections caps can largely mitigate the rate of infection for the central line-associated bloodstream. The authors mention that the prevention of infection in such setting primarily revolved around the utilization of the CVCs. The sterilization of the CVCs can largely reduce the infection often occur in the central

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
