This session will review the most common pathogens associated with CLABSI, its clinical presentation, confirmatory testing, and preventative techniques.
Learning Outcome: After the session, attendees will be able to identify the most common pathogens associated with CLABSI, its clinical presentation, and techniques to reduce the risk of contamination.
