Author(s): Dr. Amit P Nagarik, Dr. Anjali Gheware and Dr. Sarika Gupta

Abstract: Aim: To analyse the risk of infection after temporary haemodialysis catheter. Results: 210 catheter insertions were done in 160 patients. Bacteremia occurred in 72 cases. For femoral catheters, bacteremia rate increased from 27% in first week to 73% by second week (P<0.05); for jugular catheter, it increased from 16% at two weeks to 72% by third week (P<0.05). Most common organism isolated was staphylococcus aureus (70%).The risk of bacteremia was significantly more in patients with diabetes (P < 0.05) and those admitted in intensive care unit (P < 0.05). 1) Bacteremia is not an uncommon complication following temporary catheter insertion. 2) Femoral catheters, more than 1 week, jugular catheters more than 2 weeks, presence of diabetes and admission to ICCU are significant risk factors for bacteremia.
