Objective: To analyze the risk factors of catheter-related bloodstream infection in outpatients and propose feasible prevention and control measures. Methods: The medical records of outpatients with peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) from January 2020 to December 2021 were selected for retrospective analysis, and the factors that may be related to the occurrence of catheter-related bloodstream infection were analyzed by logistic multivariate analysis. Results: The incidence rate of catheter-related bloodstream infection among the enrolled patients was 4.78%. It was found that age, duration of catheterization, catheter site, number of punctures, and diabetes were all risk factors for catheter-associated bloodstream infection, and the differences were statistically significant. Conclusion: Age, duration of catheterization, catheterization site, and diabetes are all risk factors for catheter-related bloodstream infection, and medical personnel should fully understand and learn more about these risk factors and actively develop countermeasures to reduce the risk of catheter-related bloodstream infection.
