  1. Infection risk and potential contamination of urine specimens associated with sample port design of catheter leg bags.

    Article - En anglais

    The ease of disinfection of the sample ports of three types of urine drainage leg bags with different sampling port systems was assessed using a bladder bag model.

    The ports were contaminated with Escherichia coli, disinfected'using a standard method, then sampled at time intervals up to one week after contamination.

    It was discovered that leg bags which employ a needle-based sampling system (the'sample safe port system') were easier to disinfect than those which did not, and that organisms are retained in large enough numbers to lead to misdiagnosis of a urinary tract infection or to pose a retrograde infection risk.
