Abstract

The risk factors are unclear for peripheral venous catheter-associated bloodstream infections (PVCBSI) by Bacillus cereus (B. cereus). Thus, we aimed to examine the risk factors in patients with B. cereus PVCBSI by conducting a 2-year case-control study in a large teaching hospital. We analyzed all adult cases of B. cereus PVCBSI (37 patients) and 180 controls, who were randomly selected from among patients who had a PVC in place for 2 days or longer. Multivariate analysis using the conditional logistic regression model indicated that independent risk factors were use of a peripheral parenteral nutrition(PPN) solution with adjusted odds ratio (OR) of 88.7 (95% confidence interval [CI], 17.4-451.9), and steroid therapy [adjusted OR, 5.7 (95% CI, 1.3-24.4)]. In conclusion, use of PPN solutions or steroids was independent risk factors for B. cereus PVCBSI. Appropriate use of PPN solutions may help prevent B. cereus PVCBSI. Prospective studies are needed to confirm these results.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 20. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 July 2020.
All research outputs
#1,029,563
of 15,648,439 outputs
Outputs from Japanese Journal of Infectious Diseases
#6
of 488 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,177
of 267,817 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Japanese Journal of Infectious Diseases
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,648,439 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 93rd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 488 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,817 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
