Which of the following is incorrect about the findings in the following article, "Jean-François Timsit, MD, PhD; Carole Schwebel, MD, PhD; Lila Bouadma, MD; et al; for the Dressing Study Group. Chlorhexidine-Impregnated Sponges and Less Frequent Dressing Changes for Prevention of Catheter-Related Infections in Critically Ill Adults - A Randomized Controlled Trial. JAMA 2009;301(12):1231-1241"?
A. Use of CHGIS dressings decreased the rates of major catheter-related infections (clinical sepsis with or without bloodstream infection) from 0.6 per 1000 catheter-days vs 1.4 per 1000 catheter-days in standard dressing, and also catheter-related bloodstream infections from 0.40 per 1000 catheter-days vs 1.3 per 1000 catheter-days in standard dressing.
B. Use of CHGIS dressings was associated with greater resistance of bacteria in skin samples at catheter removal.
C. Severe CHGIS-associated contact dermatitis occurred in 5.3 per 1000 catheters
D. Use of CHGIS dressings prevented 1 major CRI per 117 catheters.
Answer: B. Use of CHGIS dressings was not associated with greater resistance of bacteria in skin samples at catheter removal.
