Intravascular devices in intensive care units are often associated to complications. The investigators estimate that 23.5% of catheters placed and used in intensive care are subject to at least one complication; the investigators goal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the new Tegaderm ™ IV Advanced dressings to achieve a decrease of 35% in the number of complications associated with intravascular catheters in intensive care.

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Comparison Between Two Types of Semipermeable Dressings of New Generation in the Prevention of Intravascular Catheters Related Complications in Intensive Care.

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Grenoble:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of catheters presenting any kind of complications.. [ Time Frame: From the insertion of the catheter to its removal, an average time frame thant can go up to 4 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of catheter infections related to poor adherent dressings. [ Time Frame: From the insertion of the catheter to its removal, an average time frame thant can go up to 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants presenting allergic adverse events [ Time Frame: From the insertion of the catheter to its removal, an average time frame thant can go up to 4 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Costs of each dressing type strategy. [ Time Frame: From the insertion of the catheter to its removal, an average time frame thant can go up to 4 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
