Catheter-related deep vein thrombosis (CRDVT) is a recognised adverse event when a vascular access device is inserted into venous anatomy. In this session, you will understand how and why it requires additional clinical management which is associated with an economic cost to the healthcare service provider and associated with patient discomfort. This cost and discomfort can be avoided. This session will illuminate the various interventions which may reduce the risk of CRDVT. This could assist clinicians to make better clinical decisions. However, it is important to acknowledge the evidence base for these decisions. Therefore, this session will identify and critique the quality and strength of a clinical guideline for CRDVT.
