Abstract
Cancer is a general term for a large group of diseases that can affect any part of the body. Other terms used are malignant tumors and neoplasms. This study aimed to determine the relationship between venous location and the incidence of chemotherapy extravasation in cancer patients. The research method uses a descriptive analytic method. The study population was all cancer patients undergoing intravenous chemotherapy at one-day chemotherapy care at RS X Jakarta. The sampling technique used total sampling technique, amounting to 47 patients. The research instrument used an observation sheet and a questionnaire. The results obtained from 24 respondents whose metacarpal vein locations mostly did not experience extravasation, namely 62.5% (15 people), from 15 respondents the location of the antebrachial veins did not experience extravasation, namely 100% (15 people), and from 8 respondents the location of the veins 100% (8 people) did not experience extravasation in the cephalic division. The results of the Pearson Chi-Square statistical test showed that the P-value = 0.005 (α <0.05), it can be concluded that there is a relationship between venous location and the incidence of chemotherapy extravasation in cancer patients at X Hospital Jakarta. Further recommendations need to be researched to see the effect of patient characteristics on the incidence of chemotherapy extravasation in cancer patients. The authors also hope that medical personnel will further improve patient safety when giving chemotherapy by proposing the use of a central venous catheter (CVC) or chemo port.
