It has been a while since I have listened to Martin Kiernan speak at a conference/symposium. Martin has just spoken about best practice in line auditing at the Royal College of Physicians, London. As usual Martin offers a valuable, interesting and engaging insight into the topic of infection prevention in vascular access. In addition to the insight into line audit care Martin offered a potentially hidden cause of bacteraemia. He highlighted the impact of dehydration as a potential additional cause of bacteraemia. As IV and vascular access nurses this may strengthen our relationship with infection prevention.
