Reducing infection risk: The role of single-patient use ECG in California hospitals
This webinar is on-demand and can be viewed at your convenience.
Hospital-acquired infections remain a key clinical concern, especially among critical care patients. Reducing or eliminating opportunities for pathogen exposure through cross-contamination may be an effective strategy for reducing HAIs.
Previously published research suggests that replacing reusable ECG leads with single-patient use ECG leads was associated with reduced surgical site infection risk in coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) patients. This webinar will discuss a new analysis of the association between single-patient use ECG leads and HAI rates in California hospitals.
- Clinical and economic impacts of HAI on critical care patients
- Pathogens and contamination rates associated with reusable ECG leads
- Evidence supporting HAI reduction associated with single-patient use ECG leads
