Table 3 Comparisons of catheter-related bloodstream 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 8.34 vs 2.99 2.8 (1.46–5.22) 0.002
Femoral versus subclavian 8.34 vs 0.97 2.9 (1.90–4.75) <0.001
Jugular versus subclavian 2.99 vs 0.97 3.1 (1.34–7.90) 0.005
  1. CI, confidence interval; ID, incidence density defined as number of infections per 1,000 catheter-days. OR, odds ratio.
