Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infection
This 3D medical animation shows a bacterial infection in the bloodstream caused by spread of bacteria from the cutaneous area to the intravascular area via a catheter insertion. The bacteria migrate to a thrombus as it forms on the tip of the catheter. An embolus breaks off the tip along with bacteria and they migrate downstream.
