Frequency and Microbiological Profile of Catheter-Related Infections in Hemodialysis Patients Receiving Gentamicin as Antimicrobial Lock Therapy for Prophylaxis
Pakistan Journal of Kidney Diseases
Antibiotic lock solution (ALS) in the lumen of catheter is a mean to decrease the possibility of catheter related blood stream infection (CRBSI). We conducted this study using Gentamicin as ALS to observe the frequency of catheter related infections (CRI) including CRBSI and exit site infection in this hemodialysis patients being dialyzed through tunneled and temporary hemodialysis catheters. Methods This descriptive, cross sectional study was conducted at Dr. Ziauddin Hospital, North Campusdoi:10.53778/pjkd40350 fatcat:xkrr5l6mtvhj3pp4sceh5wlpua
