- •Forty-three participants from 22 countries (46 hospitals, 85 intensive care units) responded to the survey.
- •Eight (17.4%) hospitals had no surveillance system for CLABSI.
- •Approximately 7.1 % (n = 6) had no CLABSI bundle and twenty intensive care units (23.5%) had no dedicated checklist.
- •The proportion of using ultrasonography during catheter insertion, transparent semi-permeable dressings, needleless connectors and single-use sterile pre-filled ready to use 0.9% NaCl were significantly higher in higher and middle higher countries.
