Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of prevention bundle study on central venous catheter-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) in the Anesthesia and Reanimation Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients who have central venous catheter. Invasive vehicle related infections, especially CLABSIs, are one of the most difficult infections in ICUs. It has been reported that the use of proven interventions as a bundle to prevent infections associated with invasive tools is effective in reducing infection rates.
Materials and Methods:The study was conducted interventionally between July and December 2017. Data, physician and nurse information form, CLABSI package tracking form, CLABSI package information test form, CVC insertion process observation form, bedside CLABSI package tracking form, and CLABSI package tracking form. Ethics committee permission was obtained for the study. Approval was obtained from nurses and doctors. The study was carried out in three stages. Number, Percentage, Chi-square, Fisher Exact Chi-square Test and Wilcoxon Test were used in the research.
Results: The overall compatibility of ICUs for the CLABSI bundle was 61%, 65% and 70%, respectively. As a result of the Bundle study, CLABSI rates per 1000 catheter days were decreased, from 11.3 to 9.5 in ICU1, from 9.4 to 6.8 in ICU2, and from 17.1 to 10.6 in ICU3.
Conclusion: As a result, it was seen that CLABSI precaution bundle study prepared with evidence based guidelines decreased infection rates. The bundle is recommended for use in intensive care units.
