1. Review of vascular access device complications.

2. Define the components and characteristics of tissue adhesives.

3. Describe the purposes of tissue adhesives when used with VADs.

4. Analyze the clinical outcomes with tissue adhesives used with VADs

Content Description:

Skin integrity is lost with puncture for insertion of all vascular access devices (VAD). Additional skin injury can be associated with antiseptics and other medical adhesive devices. To prevent loss of the VAD and injury to blood vessels and other structures, the VAD requires adequate securement and protection. Publications over the last decade reveal several purposes and favorable outcomes when tissue adhesives (TA) are used with both peripheral and central VADs. The evidence suggests positive results in increased dwell times and a reduction in unplanned dressing changes. TA has bactericidal properties and seals the puncture site preventing migration of bacteria into the insertion site. This presentation will review the evidence and describe the benefits of adding TA to the tool box of preventative technologies you can use to improve the vascular access experience for patients.
