  • bacteria
  • Advances in medical science have resulted in increased interventions in critically ill patients creating foci from where bacteria can gain access to the blood stream resulting in an increase nosocomial BSI. (hindawi.com)
  • This is dangerous because bacteria and their toxins can be transported through the bloodstream to the entire body. (omicsonline.org)
  • The presence of bacteria and fungi in blood leads to blood stream infections. (sbwire.com)
  • Bacteria and fungi enter into the blood and cause severe complications and infections such as pneumonia, meningitis, sepsis and AIDS. (sbwire.com)
  • Infections by multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria are a worrisome phenomenon in hematological patients. (springer.com)
  • Blood culture isolates judged to be clinically significant and antimicrobial susceptibility results of the bacteria were included. (scielo.org.za)
  • Gram-positive bacteria are most frequently isolated in blood cultures of hemodialysis patients. (biomedcentral.com)
  • 14-17 ] At present, a selective gut decontamination, with the aim to reduce the translocation of intestine Gram negative bacteria from the gut to peripheral blood, is conventionally based on fuoroquinolones, but this policy, during the last decade, induced the emergence of Gram negative fluoroquinolones resistant bacteria and an increase in Gram positive infections.

  • Reduction
  • This study shows that when standardisation, facilitation and education are developed with stakeholder involvement, it is possible to achieve a sustained reduction in the incidence of vascular device associated infections. (ivteam.com)
  • Reducing exposure to the hospital environment through admission could contribute to a reduction in bloodstream infections in this population. (biomedcentral.com)
  • complications
  • Whether the movement of the catheter is minimal as in micropistoning or large enough to cause the catheter tip to migrate, both can potentially be problematic for the patient resulting in complications, infection, or premature catheter removal," described Lange. (prweb.com)
  • findings
  • Published information regarding the clinical characteristics, laboratory findings, and outcomes of patients with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) blood stream infection (BSI) is limited. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In summary, the diverse definitions for the diagnosis of central and peripheral venous catheter-related bloodstream infections along with the vastly different sample size and extremely small PICC population size has, predictably, yielded inconsistent findings. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Highly trained personnel and well established backup systems in place (e.g. blood banks, extra personnel on site, interdisciplinary support), have been put forward to explain these findings. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Implementation
  • Despite the implementation of infection control practices, such as strict hand hygiene, the BSI rate in our hospital is still high. (frontiersin.org)
  • The rate of CVC-ABSIs increased outside-ICU, and the implementation of multifaceted infection control programme decreased their clinical impact. (biomedcentral.com)
