Infusion-associated septicemia is an appreciable hazard to the more than 8 million patients who receive intravenous therapy in U.S. hospitals each year. Rigorous infection control measures are necessary if the risk of sepsis is to be reduced. Bases on CDC studies and a critical review of previously published investigations, guidelines are proposed for the prevention and management of infections caused by intravenous therapy.
