Recommendations: Inpatient status, recent hospitalization episode, intravenous drug use and female sex are the most likely factors indicating a risk of extravasation. (Grade B) ; A new catheter should be inserted to decrease the volume of extravasate. (Grade B) ; Where possible venous access should be obtained in the antecubital fossa to reduce extravasation rate. (Grade B) ; An extravasation detection accessory may be used to decrease the volume of extravasate. (Grade B) ; Warming the contrast agent iopamidol 370 (Bracco Diagnostics) to 37oC may reduce the risk of extravasation. (Grade B)
