Abbreviations:CVC: Central venous catheter; PICC: Peripherally inserted central catheter; AC: Arterial catheter; PAC: Pulmonary artery catheter; CRBSI: Catheter related bloodstream infection; APACHE: Acute physiology and chronic health evaluation.

Key:a Assumed patient number = catheter number b Bijma’s pre-intervention CVC colonisation and CRBSI data was excluded from pooled data. c Mixed PAC + CVC data so excluded from pooled data. d Mixed colonisation data (including 4 arterial catheters) excluded from pooled data.
