AbstractAn assembly for inhibiting catheter sepsis comprises an intravenous catheter inserted through a skin surface at an insertion point, a patch attached to the skin surface about the insertion point so as to cover a region of the skin surface and a segment of the catheter at the skin surface, and an ancillary tube having a distal end portion disposed between the patch and the skin surface upon an application of the patch to the skin surface. In the distal end portion, the ancillary tube has an outlet port which is located between the patch and the skin surface upon application of the patch to the skin surface. The ancillary tube has an inlet port spaced in a proximal direction from the outlet port so that the inlet port is accessible via a needle upon application of the patch to the skin surface.
