New Clinical Study Shows RyMed InVision-Plus® IV Connector Dramatically Reduced Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infections by Over 92%
Date:2/17/2011

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Health Sciences University, Augusta, GA  exhibited a poster at the recent 11th National Conference on Cancer Nursing Research in Los Angeles, in which their clinical study showed RyMed Technologies' zero displacement InVision-Plus® IV Connector significantly decreased the incidence of catheter-related bloodstream infections (CR-BSIs) by 92.6% on average when compared to a simple split septum with negative displacement IV connector (Becton-Dickinson Q-Syte®) and a reversed split-septum device with negative displacement IV connector (ICU Medical Clave®).  No clinical studies have been published comparing different types of connectors in oncology patients on CR-BSIs.  CR-BSIs can cause treatment delays, add time to nursing care, increase costs, increase mortality and decrease quality of life for the patient and family.  

The purpose of the study was to determine infection rates for a split septum valve, a negative reversed split-septum valve and an intraluminal protection device (IPD) with zero displacement in both critical care and medical in-patient oncology patients.  

Detailed results:

  • CR-BSI incidences decreased 96.3%, from 2.9 to 0.1 infections per 1,000 catheter days, when the RyMed InVision-Plus® needleless IV connector was used compared to the Becton-Dickinson's Q-Syte® product.

  • CR-BSI incidences decreased 88.9%, from 3.7 to 0.4 infections per 1,000 catheter days, when the RyMed InVision-Plus® needleless IV connector was used compared to the ICU Medical Clave® product.

  • Overall, 92.6% decrease in infection rate was found when using the RyMed InVision-Plus® with Neutral Advantage™ technology.'/>"/>
