B. Reporting
CVC Data

Q. How do I collect the data on CVC days?

CVC days are defined here as the number of days that a patient has at least one CVC in situ. If a patient has multiple CVCs on one day, this should only be counted as 1 CVC day. You are required to report the total number of patients in the unit with ≥ 1 CVC. You are also required to report the number of CVC-days, restricted to only include CVC-days when the patient has been in the unit for ≥2 nights (where day 0 is day of admission). Please refer to the ICU Protocol for further details on the rationale and definitions for collecting data on CVC days.
