    Earlier positivity of
    Central-Venous-Versus Peripheral-Blood Cultures is
    Highly Predictive of Catheter-Related Sepsis
    .

    J
    Clin Microbiol 36: 105-109, 1998.

        

    Central venous catheter (CVC) related infection
    usually requires removal of the catheter.
    A comparison of the material obtained form
    the catheter tip and cultures of blood drawn
    simultaneously showed that this may be a reliable
    method for diagnosis of catheter related sepsis with
    indwelling catheters.
