Its incidence rates vary widely from 5.3 % to 77.5 % of all inserted catheters, 27 cases per 100 subjects. or 104 cases per 1000 catheter per days. In India the current incidence of catheter-associated (peripheral) ST is estimated at 0.5 cases of blood stream infections per 1000 days of a peripherally inserted intravenous device. For non-tunneled, non-medicated, central venous catheters, the incidence is estimated at 2.7 per 1000 intravenous device days. Approximately 4.2 % of burn patients experience peripheral ST.
