Below is the English definition mentioned in Slovak here:

Inštitút pre rozvoj zdravotnej starostlivos-
ti v USA charakterizuje kavalovú infekciu ako bakterémiu/
fungémiu u pacienta s intravaskulárnym katétrom a aspoň
jednou pozitívnou hemokultúrou z periférnej žily, klinický-
mi príznakmi infekcie a so žiadnou viditeľnou príčinou in-
fekcie okrem katétra.

Catheter-Related BSI

Bacteremia/fungemia in a patient with an intravascular catheter with at least one positive blood culture obtained from a peripheral vein, clinical manifestations of infections (i.e., fever, chills, and/or hypotension), and no apparent source for the BSI except the catheter. One of the following should be present: a positive semiquantitative (>15 CFU/catheter segment) or quantitative (>103 CFU/catheter segment catheter) culture whereby the same organism (species and antibiogram) is isolated from the catheter segment and peripheral blood; simultaneous quantitative blood cultures with a >5:1 ratio CVC versus peripheral; differential period of CVC culture versus peripheral blood culture positivity of >2 hours
