Abstract: 

Introduction: Aproximately 90% of hospitalized clients receive some types of infusion therapy. Health care providers prescribe infusion therapy for their clients for various reasons .Nowadays, infusion therapy plays a significant role in treatment processes. It is a usual procedure of curing patients, but in spite of its benefits like other procedures, it may cause some complications of which phlebitis and local infection are the most common and dangerous ones respectively.
Materials & Methods: This is a clinical trial study to investigate the effects of Betadine and Alcohol on complications of intravenous catheters among the hospitalized patients. In this research,the samples consisted of 110 patients whom were prescribed I V catheter and divided into two equal groups: Betadine (55patients) & Alcohol (55patients). After scrubbing the infusion site with Betadine or Alcohol, every 12 hours the site would be examined for any signs of ph lebitis. If phlebitis was present, the tip of catheter would be cut and sent to the lab for diagnosis of microorganisms. The collected data was analyzed by T-test and chi-square.
Finds: The finds showed that the incidence of phlebitis among Betadine - takers was lower than that of Alcohol - takers, but this difference did not prove significant statistically (p>0.05 ).
Discussion: According to the finds, it can be recommend to apply Betadine instead of Alcohol as to sterilize the infusion site for the patients receiving intravenous catheters.
