7 CLABSI case definitions: clinical NumerousApplications: diagnostic dilemmas, clinical trialsSpecialised laboratory testing methods:catheter tip culturesquantitative blood and catheter tip culturesdifferential time to positivity
8 Clinical definitions: heterogeneity Diagnostic criteria‘Definite’Same organism cultured from catheter tip & blood(using DTP or quantitative catheter & peripheral cultures)‘Probable’Local infection at insertion site and organism cultured from bloodRemission of previously refractory fever within 48 hours of catheter removal with organism cultured from blood.‘Possible’Pathogen cultured in blood that is typically implicated in causing catheter-related infections (e.g. S. aureus, Candida)Organism cultured from blood and no other focus identified in a patient with an indwelling CVCFatkenheuer G, et al.

27 The ‘beneficial bundle’ Strategy/intervention consisting of a series of componentseach component evidence-based & demonstrated impactprocess measuresImplementationfeasibleachieved by multi-faceted strategy – education, credentialing, product selection
28 Bloodstream infections in ICU US experience with ‘bundle intervention’ Bloodstream infections associated with CVCs are preventableBundle comprised of 5 interventions:maximal barrier precautionshand washingavoidance of femoral siteremoval of unnecessary deviceschlorhexidine for skin asepsisSignificant & sustained impact in reducing rates of infection at multiple US centresPronovost PJ, et al. N Engl J Med 2006
29 Zero tolerance?Proposal for zero tolerance of CLABSI rates – simple hospital performance indicatorModification in case-definition will reduce CLABSI ratesOther contributing factors:barrier precautions, hand-hygiene, skin preparation, removal of unnecessary devices, avoidance of femoral siteeducation, simulator training, credentialing of HCW

38 A role for CLABSI process monitoring in Victoria? Following pilot – ongoing participation requestedProposed scope for CLABSI process monitoring in Victoria:Optional surveillance module for healthcare facilities currently participating in CLABSI surveillance (periodic/continuous)If higher than expected CLABSI rates at a single centreMonitoring in non-ICU environments, where CLABSI may be less frequent or more difficult to monitor (interventional radiology, ward, other)CLIP module available 10/2011
40 Validation of CLABSI data (VICNISS) Accuracy of data important for benchmarking & longitudinal analysis, but few validation studies performed by non-US centresReview of hospital medical records comparing reported surveillance data with gold standard6 Victorian centres, Jan-Dec 2006Gold standard = blinded assessment by trained VICNISS ICCNNIS case-definitionMcBryde ES, et al. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2009
41 OutcomesTotal 398 bacteraemias, 81 reported as CLABSI. Sample set of 46 reported CLABSIs and 62 not reported as CLABSIs67% inter-rater agreement with VICNISS reviewPPV 59% (43-73%), NPV 73% (60-83%)Sensitivity 35% (23-48%), specificity 87% (82-92%)Hypothetical sensitivity 50% [NHSN]

43 Assessment tool: an example A patient with sub-arachnoid haemorrhage is admitted to hospital directly into ICU and a CVC is inserted. The patient becomes febrile after 24 hrs, with no localising symptoms or signs. Blood culture taken at 24 hrs isolates Staphylococcus aureus, and treatment with intravenous flucloxacillin is commenced:⃞ this is an ICU-acquired CLABSI⃞ this is not an ICU-acquired CLABSI
44 OutcomesOverall concordance with external comparator 57.1% (range %)Mean concordance higher for 1A hospitals compared with non-1A (60.6 vs. 55.3%)Proportion of congruently classified cases, by NNIS criteria: criterion 1, 52.8%; criterion 2a, 83.3%; criterion 2b, 58.3%Hypothetical concordance 62.5% [NHSN]

47 Scenario 1 Trauma patient, day 18 post MVA Blood cultures collected at the same time:from PICC - Enterobacter gergoviaefrom peripheral site – no growth
48 Scenario 2 Patient with 60% burns. After prolonged hospital stay, central line in situ,blood culture: Enterobacter spp.On same day as blood culture - patient had clinically infected burns with tissue cultures growing multiple organisms (not Enterobacter).
49 Scenario 3 Patient admitted 5 days ago following head injury. Central line in situ.Single blood culture from central venous line - Pseudomonas spp.No peripheral blood culture taken.The patient was not febrile or septic at the time of the culture and was not commenced on antibiotics.
50 Scenario 4 28 Apr Admitted to hospital 1 May Admitted to ICU 2 CVC inserted (2200)3 Blood culture (0600) - Acinetobacter sppTracheal aspirate - MSSANotes: "febrile, ? Source GNB on blood culture”7 ID documented “Acinetobacter cause of line sepsis” CXR essentially clear May8 CXR increasing consolidation, collapse in the LLL & increasing consolidation R) lung baseAcinetobacter spp isolated from tracheal aspirate
51 Scenario 5A patient grew an Enterococcus spp from a single peripheral blood culture.Patient in ICU for severe pneumonia but was clinically improving (extubated the day before, no longer febrile, white cell count decreasing).Medical History - ID physician notes: “Enterococcus - probable contaminant".
52 Scenario 6A patient is undergoing treatment for acute myeloid leukaemiahas chemotherapy-induced mucositis (mouth ulcers, nausea, vomiting).Hickman line in situblood culture taken peripherally - Enterococcus sppmultiple occasions.
54 Gut source or CLABSI?Gram-negative bacteraemia (or fungaemia) in ICU patients may occur either because of translocation of microorganisms from oedematous, abnormal, or adynamic segments of bowel or because of microscopic or macroscopic defects in the bowel wall.Absence of proof (of an established infection at a site other than a central vascular catheter as a source of bacteraemia) cannot be cited as proof of absence.
55 CLABSI due to Enterococci? The issue of using a single blood culture positive for enterococci as evidence of a laboratory-confirmed case of CLABSI is not a trivial.Evidence that Enterococci are frequent contaminants of blood cultures is compelling.Infectious diseases specialists routinely perform a repeat blood culture as a first step to assess patients who have a single blood culture positive for Enterococci. If the repeat culture result is negative, most infectious diseases specialists would conclude that the single positive blood culture result represents contamination.
56 CLABSI surveillance definition 2 proposed changes Inclusion of an “indeterminate source” for some BSIs, andAcknowledgement that a single blood culture positive for Enterococci has little clinical significance, similar to the interpretation of a single blood culture positive for CNS.
57 CLABSIs could be divided into 3 categories: primarysecondary, orindeterminate source.Acceptance of an “indeterminate source” category for some patients with BSI would allow hospital epidemiologists to acknowledge that we can not determine the source of every infection with certainty.
58 Scenario 7Patient with relapsed acute myeloid leukaemia presented with documented febrile neutropenia.CVC in situ.Streptococcus viridians spp grown from two separate blood draws.

60 Scenario 8 Haematology patient with refractory B-cell lymphoma. Day 3 post allograft - blood cultures from both Hickman lumens and peripherally - E. coli .Patient has an anal fissure. CT scan: no abscess.Ongoing abdominal pain,Laparotomy 1 week earlier - NAD.Abdominal pain still under investigation.Hickman was not removed by the treating team, TPN was ongoing.
62 Case 9 A patient with CVC in situ for 9 days becomes febrile 1/5 - E. coli is isolated in blood culture2/5 - Klebsiella pneumoniae is isolated in blood cultureChest X-ray is clear and no organism is isolated from urine. No other primary source of infection is identified.
63 Case 10In the setting of fever, a patient with CVC in situ isolates Staphylococcus epidermidis from a single blood culture.The treating clinician commences vancomycin for targeted therapy.
