Purpose:

We proposed to perform a prospective randomized controlled trial to study the effect of the use of a commercially-available chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge (Biopatch) as part of central venous catheter care on catheter-related bloodstream infections among patients in two Barnes-Jewish Hospital ICUs.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - patients who are admitted to the ICU with a central venous catheter (i.e. triple lumen catheters, quadruple lumen catheters, percutaneously inserted central catheters, arterial catheters, intraaortic balloon pumps, Swan-Ganz catheters). Exclusion Criteria: - patients who are not enrolled into the trial within 7 days of having the catheter being placed and patients who are allergic to chlorhexidine.
