Question


  1. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of lower body administration versus upper body administration of medication using needleless, indwelling, subcutaneous catheters? 

  2. What is the comparative clinical effectiveness of lower body administration versus upper body administration of hypodermoclysis using needleless, indwelling, subcutaneous catheters?

  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding body sites for administration of medication or hypodermoclysis with needleless, indwelling, subcutaneous catheters?


Key Message

One evidence-based guideline was identified regarding body sites for administration of medication or hypodermoclysis with needleless, indwelling, subcutaneous catheters. No relevant health technology assessments, systematic reviews, randomized control trials, or non-randomized studies were identified regarding the clinical effectiveness of lower body administration of medication or hypodermoclysis using needleless, indwelling, subcutaneous catheters.
