Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To compare the available dressings and securement devices for CVCs, in terms of catheter-related bloodstream infection (CR-BSI), catheter colonisation, entry and exit site infection, skin colonisation, skin irritation, accidental catheter removal (complete or partial), dressing condition and mortality.
