Three Studies Presented at the 2011 SHEA Annual Scientific Meeting Show That the ICU Medical MicroCLAVE® Contributes to a Significant Decrease in Bacterial Transfer and Reduction in Bloodstream Infections
Date:4/4/2011

In testing the Clearlink™, SmartSite®, InVision-Plus®, MaxPlus®, Q-Syte® and MicroCLAVE® connectors, Dr. Ryder reported that "there are significant differences among connectors were observed for bacterial transfer and colonization of the catheter hub and internal lumen of the catheter. The Q-Syte connector tested performed poorly compared to the other connectors while the MicroCLAVE performed better than the other connectors. The MicroCLAVE demonstrated a significantly smaller log density of bacteria than the other connectors." She further concluded that "overall, the results suggest that connector selection may impact both bacterial transfer to the bloodstream and bacterial colonization of catheter hub and internal lumen."(3)

A third poster titled A Multi-Faceted Approach to Reduction of Blood Culture Contaminants at an Academic Medical Center presented by Rebecca L. Landreth, RN et al from the University Medical Center in Tucson, AZ sought to explore whether implementing a hospital-wide program to educate clinicians on blood culture drawing protocol that included the use of a MicroCLAVE neutral displacement connector would reduce contaminated blood cultures from central lines. In 2009, UMC began a study drawing central line blood cultures through the MicroCLAVE, and in the first year of the study they saw a 48% reduction in BCC with a 62% reduction in blood culture contamination (BCC) from central line draws. The last six months of the house wide study showed a further reduction of BCC from central line drawn specimens of 34%, with a BCC rate in 2010 was down to 1.42%.(4)

ICU Medical offers a complete line of MicroCLAVE neutral displacement connectors that includes the original MicroCLAVE, the antimicrobial MicroCLAVE, and the MicroCLAVE Clear. Each connector in the line shares the design features that have been clinically proven to provide a safe and effective microbial barrier. The neutral displacement straight
