Objective: There is no diagnostic tool to identify which bacterial catheter colonization may eventually result in bloodstream infection. We speculated that a faster growth or repeated positivity of serial blood cultures drawn from the catheter might herald catheter-related bacteremia (CRB) before the onset of fever.
