Abstract: equivalent to 4.46 infections/1000 PN days. Comparison of baseline statistics between patients with and without confirmed PN-aCVC sepsis revealed no significant difference between age, pre-feed BMI or baseline albumin. PN-aCVC sepsis positive patients had a longer feed length (36.67 days vs 13.54 days, p ¼ 0.0007). The table demonstrates multivariate logistic regression for RR of line sepsis given various patient characteristics. Six month mortality in the entire cohort was 27%. Age above 65 (RR 3.17, 95%CI 1.…
