The latest edition helps readers develop the expertise they need in this climate of perpetual change.
For this third edition, an extensive literature search was conducted for each type of access device available. You'll also explore the latest technologies, management procedures, and the controversies that still exist in the field.
With little evidence-based knowledge to guide nursing practice in the use of access devices, these guidelines have instead focused information culled from the available literature on such procedures as strict hand washing, strict aseptic technique, and a consistent approach to maintenance care. Developed to provide recommendations for application of access device technology within nursing practice, these guidelines provide the foundation for evidence-based practice and a means to evaluate your own procedures and practices.
