Objective: Our object is to study risk factors of tumor patients' PICC catheterrelated blood stream infection. Method: a retrospective analysis of data of 586 PICC catheterized patients was implemented, a univariate analysis of general data and catheterizing data of tumor patients was then carried out, and data of single factors with statistical significance were incorporated into multi-factor Logistic regression model for analysis. Results: PICC catheter-related blood stream infection occurred
more » ... infection occurred to 16 patients, and occurrence rate was 2.73%. Multifactor Logistic regression analysis results showed that number of puncturing times, positioning method and maintenance frequency were risk factors for tumor patients' peripherally inserted central catheter catheter-related blood stream infection, and odds risk values were respectively 8.762, 9.253 and 10.324. Conclusion: for tumor patients implanted with peripherally inserted central catheters, using ECG positioning during strict sterile operation and catheterizing process to avoid repeated puncturing and increasing maintenance frequency could effectively reduce occurrence of PICC catheter-related blood stream infection.
