Central Venous Catheter Related Bacteremia In Hemodialysis Patients. Patients with end- stage renal disease are subjected to morbidity and mortality mainly by infections. Basically, infections in patients suffering from hemodualysis are strongly related with the use of an indwelling central venous catheter. Majority of these infections are accounted by Gram- negative rods and coagulase- negative staphylococci. This health condition is treated through the application of antibiotic therapy. Alternatively, patients suffering from central venous catheter related bacteremia in hemodialysis disease are diagnosed through the isolation of the same microorganism from quantitative cultures of both the peripheral blood and catheter of a patient that has clinical characteristics of infection without another noticeable cause.
