Seasonal differences in central line-associated bloodstream infection incidence rates in a Central European setting: Results from prospective surveillance


Schreiber, Peter W; Dunic, Mesida; Wolfensberger, Aline; Clack, Lauren; Falk, Christian; Sax, Hugo; Kuster, Stefan P (2019). Seasonal differences in central line-associated bloodstream infection incidence rates in a Central European setting: Results from prospective surveillance. American Journal of Infection Control, 47(8):1011-1013.

Abstract

Using prospectively collected surveillance data at a tertiary care hospital in Central Europe, we investigated seasonal differences in central line-associated bloodstream infection incidence. Central line-associated bloodstream infection incidence rates were highest during the third quarter over an observation period of 24 months. Investigating influence of meteorological parameters identified a significant correlation with precipitation (r = 0.460, P = .023).
