Hemodialysis central venous catheter scrub – the -hub protocol … part 8

Central venous catheter 2


Disconnection and line reversals

Catheter hubs should be disinfected again after disconnecting from bloodlines and before replacing a new cap at the end of a treatment. This should be done in a manner similar to that used when disinfecting the hub prior to accessing. Disinfecting the catheter hub and the end of the extracorporeal blood line should also be performed if, during a treatment, a patient must be disconnected and their blood is re-circulated. Anytime a patient circuit is disconnected this should be done aseptically and the number of times a patient’s catheter is disconnected from the blood lines should be minimized to the extent possible.
