Table 2 Comparison of catheter-related local infection incidence densities between different central venous sites

From: Central venous catheter-related infection in a prospective and observational study of 2,595 catheters

  ID OR (95% CI) P-values
Femoral versus jugular 15.83 vs 7.65 2.1 (1.35–3.14) <0.001
Femoral versus subclavian 15.83 vs 1.57 3.2 (2.29–4.53) <0.001
Jugular versus subclavian 7.65 vs 1.57 4.8 (2.64–9.60) <0.001
  1. CI, confidence interval; ID, incidence density defined as number of infections per 1,000 catheter-days. OR, odds ratio.
