PMID:  5771579     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Within a period of only seven months three patients in one hospital under treatment with antibiotics by intravenous infusion developed secondary bloodstream infection originating from the site of insertion of the cannula. Two of these infections were fatal. Precautions suggested include strict asepsis, the skin being sterilized with iodine in spirit solution; antibiotic spray; and changing the cannula site.
