Catheter-associated urinary tract infection in children: A discriminant analysis prediction model to prevent it.

Background: A model of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) in children was established by a discriminant analysis to predict prevention of CAUTI. Methods: A case-control study was conducted with 153 cases CAUTI and 201 controls. Both cases and controls were obtained from children, parents and medical staff of pediatric ward in Adam Malik Hospital Medan, Indonesia. Results: The models incorporated 4 influencing factors that were related to prevent CAUTI, and only 3 factors determined as predictors in the model, this include: compliant for education, implementation monitoring CAUTI. The model is statistically significant (lambda=0.793, chi square=85.0, df=3, p<0.001) Conclusion: The prediction model that was established using risk factors of CAUTI is useful in preventing CAUTI. Further research is needed to confirm the validity and reliability of the model.
