Abstract: Objective To investigate the incidence of peripherally inserted central catheter(PICC)-related bloodstream infections in cancer patients with diabetes, and to analyze related high risk factors. Methods 〓Totally 60 cancer patients with diabetes received PICC catheterization for chemotherapy, their clinical data were collected and analyzed. Results 〓There were 25(41.67%)cases of PICC-related complications observed during treatment, in which 7 cases were PICC-related bloodstream infections. The season issue(OR=31.754, 95% CI: 7.134~115.377), frequency of changing dressing(OR=29.701, 95% CI: 6.882~121.083), administration of special drugs(OR=178.341, 95% CI: 53.187~986.089)were risk factors of PICC-related bloodstream infections, and the education level(OR=0.018, 95% CI: 0.001~0.647)was the protective factor of PICC-related bloodstream infections. Conclusion 〓The season issue, frequency of changing dressing, administration of special drugs and education level were associated with the PICC-related bloodstream infections in cancer patients with diabetes. It is required to enhance the health education and disease awareness of patients and their family members.
