A type of ILEUS, a functional not mechanical obstruction of the INTESTINES. This syndrome is caused by a large number of disorders involving the smooth muscles (MUSCLE, SMOOTH) or the NERVOUS SYSTEM.
The at-home administering of nutrients for assimilation and utilization by a patient who cannot maintain adequate nutrition by enteral feeding alone. Nutrients are administered via a route other than the alimentary canal (e.g., intravenously, subcutaneously).
Infections resulting from the use of catheters. Proper aseptic technique, site of catheter placement, material composition, and virulence of the organism are all factors that can influence possible infection.
Extracorporeal ULTRAFILTRATION technique without HEMODIALYSIS for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.
A malabsorption syndrome resulting from extensive operative resection of the SMALL INTESTINE, the absorptive region of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
Functional obstruction of the COLON leading to MEGACOLON in the absence of obvious COLONIC DISEASES or mechanical obstruction. When this condition is acquired, acute, and coexisting with another medical condition (trauma, surgery, serious injuries or illness, or medication), it is called Ogilvie's syndrome.
Surgical formation of an opening through the ABDOMINAL WALL into the JEJUNUM, usually for enteral hyperalimentation.
Passage of a CATHETER into the URINARY BLADDER or kidney.
Inflammatory responses of the epithelium of the URINARY TRACT to microbial invasions. They are often bacterial infections with associated BACTERIURIA and PYURIA.

Prospective comparison of downward and lateral peritoneal dialysis catheter tunnel-tract and exit-site directions. (1/386)

OBJECTIVE: Guidelines for optimal peritoneal dialysis access support both downward and lateral exit-site directions. Numerous clinical reports support the superiority of downward exit sites but none substantiate lateral configurations. METHODS: This prospective study compared infectious and mechanical complications between 85 catheters with a preformed arcuate bend to produce a downward exit site and 93 catheters with a straight intercuff segment configured to create a lateral exit site. RESULTS: Kaplan-Meier survivals were not different for time to first exit-site infection (p = 0.62), tunnel infection (p = 0.89), or peritonitis (p = 0.38) for downward and lateral exit-site directions. Poisson regression showed no differences in rates (episodes/patient-year) of exit-site infection (0.26 vs 0.27, p = 0.86), tunnel infection (0.02 vs 0.03, p = 0.79), peritonitis (0.42 vs 0.43, p = 0.87), or catheter loss (0.06 vs 0.09, p = 0.29) for downward and lateral exit sites. Kaplan-Meier analyses of antibiotic-free intervals for exit-site (p = 0.94) and peritonitis infections (p = 0.72) were not different for the two groups. There was one case of catheter tip displacement with flow dysfunction in each group. There were no pericatheter hernias or spontaneous cuff extrusions. Catheter survival between groups was not different (p = 0.20). CONCLUSIONS: Catheter types employing downward and lateral tunnel-tract and exit-site configurations produce equivalent outcomes for infectious and mechanical complications.  (+info)

Development of a reference information model and knowledgebase for electronic bloodstream infection detection. (7/386)

The most prevalent hospital-acquired infections in the United States are bloodstream infections (BSIs) associated with the presence of a central venous catheter. There is currently a movement, including national organizations such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as well as consumer, quality improvement and patient safety groups, encouraging the standardization of reporting and aggregation of such nosocomial infection data to increase and improve reporting, and enable rate comparisons among healthcare institutions. Domain modeling is a well-known method for designing interoperable processes that take advantage of existing data and legacy systems. We have combined such a model-driven design approach with the use of partitioned clinical and business logic knowledgebases in order to employ a previously validated electronic BSI surveillance algorithm in the context of a multi-center study.  (+info)

An agent-based model for evaluating surveillance methods for catheter-related bloodstream infection. (8/386)

Surveillance for catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) is hindered by the fact that clinical case criteria are complex and subjective. Simplified objective criteria, based only on microbiologic data, may be a less valid, but potentially more reliable system for estimating and comparing institutional infection rates. We developed an agent-based simulation model to examine the impact of these two different criteria on the measurement of CRBSI in a simulated 12-bed hospital intensive care unit (ICU). We found that, on average, the clinical criteria was more accurate at estimating the true CRBSI rate than the simple criteria (3.36+/-1.11 vs. 5.41+/-1.36 infections/1000 catheter-days, compared with a true rate of 3.54+/-1.60). However, ecologic correlation (i.e., the accurate ranking of CRBSI rates across institutions) was higher for simple criteria than clinical criteria. Thus, simplified objective criteria are potentially superior to clinical criteria in identifying the true differences in CRBSI rates between institutions.  (+info)

The article about CLABSIs in neonates [7] provides the definition, etiology, and pathogenesis of bloodstream infections as well as strategies for preventing them. The authors defined 2 different types of bloodstream infections that were associated with central venous catheters: catheter-related bloodstream infection and CLABSIs. However, a definition specific to neonates is still needed and requires further research. Regarding preventive strategies, adequate patient-to-staff ratios should be guaranteed as part of the governments continued attention and support. Medical personnel should be educated and trained accordingly ...
Abstract:. Background: This study aimed to assess the impact implementation of the basic Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America/Infectious Diseases Society of America (SHEA/IDSA) practice recommendations in reducing central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) in intensive care units (ICUs).. Methods: The prospective study was conducted from January 2011-December 2012 at the 23-bed trauma ICU in Saudi Arabia. The basic SHEA/IDSA practice recommendations were introduced and implemented during the year 2012. Laboratory-confirmed CLABSIs were identified, and the antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates was determined. Data were collected and analyzed for benchmarking with the National Healthcare Safety Network.. Results: There was a 58% decline in the CLABSI incidence rate from 3.87 to 1.5 per 1,000 central line days in 2011 and 2012, respectively (standardized infection ratio, 0.42; P = .043). Three institutional risk factors were identified and resolved: health care personnel ...
Background: Regulatory agencies in the United States require hospitals use of the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) definitions for central line associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) surveillance. In 2015, there were several modifications to the NHSN definition of CLABSI. The objective of this study is to quantify the effect of these modifications on reported CLABSI rates.. Methods: We gathered intensive care unit (ICU) CLABSI data from 8 hospitals within a healthcare system and used data from 2014 as a baseline. Both the 2014 and 2015 NHSN CLABSI definitions were applied to the ICU patients in 2015. Infection rates were determined using both definitions for the 2015 patients, and compared to 2014 data using chi square analysis (Epi Info 7).. Results: There were 28 CLABSI identified in 2014 baseline data (42,230 central line (cl) days, 0.65 CLABSI per 1000 cl days). In 2015 there were 52 CLABSI cases under the 2015 NHSN definition (43,599 cl days, 1.19 CLABSI per 1000 cl days), but ...
Results Residents scored a mean IJ pretest of 35.5% (10.29/29, SD=8.30) compared with a post-test mean of 93.0% (26.96/29, SD=1.50; p,0.001). Their mean SC pretest score was 23.0% (6.68/29; SD=9.58) and increased to 96.1% (27.88/29, SD=1.41) at post-test (p,0.001). Patients experienced 3.82 infections per 1000 catheter-days (20 infections in 5235 catheter-days) in the ICU in the 23 months before the educational intervention. During the 21 months after the intervention, there were 1.29 infections per 1000 catheter-days (six infections in 4670 catheter-days (p=0.019)). The incidence rate ratio derived from the Poisson regression was 0.26 (95% CI 0.09 to 0.74) after controlling for Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation III score indicating that there was a 74% reduction in the incidence of CLABSI in the medical ICU after the intervention.. ...
A central line (also known as a central venous catheter) is a catheter (tube) that doctors often place in a large vein in the neck, chest, or groin to give medication or fluids or to collect blood for medical tests. You may be familiar with intravenous catheters (also known as IVs) that are used frequently to give medicine or fluids into a vein near the skins surface (usually on the arm or hand), for short periods of time. Central lines are different from IVs because central lines access a major vein that is close to the heart and can remain in place for weeks or months and be much more likely to cause serious infection. Central lines are commonly used in intensive care units.. ...
In the present study, we aimed to assess the rate and effect of device-associated nosocomial infections (DANIs), as well as the rate of antibiotic resistance, in the medical-surgical intensive care unit (ICU) of a research and training hospital in Turkey, and to compare our results with those reported by the National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance (NNIS) system and International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC). A total of 509 patients were followed up within a 1-year period from 1 November 2007 to 1 November 2008. The total patient days were 4,087, the number of DANIs was 181.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced ambitious new targets for reducing healthcare-acquired infections (HAI) by 2020. The goals apply to acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, and ambulatory surgical centers. If achieved, these goals could save billions of dollars and numerous lives. That said, on its last reduction attempt, HHS wasnt able to meet its 2013 HAI targets. Between 2009 and 2014, the only goal that was fully achieved was reducing the central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) rate by 50%. Other goals saw minor or partial successes, with the exception of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) and C. diff hospitalizations (HCUP). Over the course of five years, CAUTI rates havent changed, while HCUP rates have actually increased by 18%. Sue Dill Calloway RN, Esq., AD, BA, BSN, MSN, JD, CPHRM, CCMSCP, president of Patient Safety and Healthcare Consulting and Education, says the new HHS goals are pretty ambitious,

CRBSIs (catheter-related bloodstream infection) continue to be associated with considerable morbidity and mortality and cause high treatment costs.
Device-associated infections (i.e., central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and ventilator-associated pneumonia) accounted for about one-quarter (26%) of all HAIs in 2011.. It is important to understand the different types of HAIs and how they are spread to be able to effectively prevent them.. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) occur when germs enter the urinary system and affect the bladder (which stores the urine) and/or the kidneys (which filter the blood to make urine). These infections are often associated with the use of a catheter, which is a tube placed into the bladder to drain urine.. Surgical site infections (SSIs) occur after surgery in the part of the body where the surgery took place. These infections may involve only the skin, or may be more serious and involve tissue under the skin, organs, or implanted material. SSIs sometimes take days or months after surgery to develop.. Respiratory or lung infections (such as pneumonia) can ...
Enterococci bacteria are a frequent cause of catheter-associated urinary tract infections, the most common type of hospital-acquired infection. Treatment has become increasingly challenging because of the emergence of multiantibiotic-resistant enterococcal strains and their ability to form biofilms on catheters. We identified and targeted a critical step in biofilm formation and developed a vaccine that prevents catheter-associated urinary tract infections in mice. In the murine model, formation of catheter-associated biofilms by Enterococcus faecalis depends on EbpA, which is the minor subunit at the tip of a heteropolymeric surface fiber known as the endocarditis- and biofilm-associated pilus (Ebp). We show that EbpA is an adhesin that mediates bacterial attachment to host fibrinogen, which is released and deposited on catheters after introduction of the catheter into the mouse bladder. Fibrinogen-binding activity resides in the amino-terminal domain of EbpA (EbpANTD), and vaccination with ...

2Alfred Health Infectious Diseases Data Unit, Melbourne, Australia. Background: Prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) in ICUs has become a priority in Australia, with ICU CLABSI events often used as quality indicators. In 2006, a hospital-wide CLABSI monitoring and prevention program was implemented at our facility. The objective of this study was to compare ICU and non-ICU burden of illness, and to describe epidemiology of non-ICU CLABSI events.. Method: Standardised surveillance definitions based upon CDC/NHSN were applied consistently throughout the period 1 Jan 2015 to 31 December 2018, including exclusion of events related to mucosal barrier injury. Denominator data were captured for ICU and the haematology ward.. Result: In total, 180 CLABSI events were observed hospital-wide, with 18 (10%) in ICU and 162 (90%) in non-ICU wards. Of non-ICU CLABSI events, the majority (112, 62.2%) occurred in haematology patients, with fewer in burns (10) and nephrology (5) ...
Introduction: Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is a critical problem in dialysiscenter.Aim: To study the prevalence of central venous catheter related blood stream infections and toidentify the microbiological profile of organisms causing CRBSI.Materials and Methods: This prospective observational study carried out at Dialysis unit overa period of two years on 145 hemodialysis patients, who had cultures of catheter and bloodsamples were studied.Results: A total of 557 haemodialysis catheters (tunnelled and non-tunnelled) wereinserted during the study period, and among them, CRBSIs was seen in 145 cases.Meanduration of dialysis catheters in situ was 20.6days.99 (68.2%) patients were males, and 46(31.7%) were females. Diabetes mellitus (76.5 %) was the most common premorbid illnessassociated with CRBSI. 81.3% patients found to be below 10 mg/dl of Hb, and68.3%patients had leucocytosis. Among 145 of CRBSI, blood cultures were positive in 48patients, and 97 patients were culture negative.45.8%
Central venous catheters (CVCs) are commonly used in the management of critically ill patients. This study aimed to determine whether an educational program could reduce the rate of catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSIs) in intensive care units (ICUs). All patients admitted to a medical ICU at a college affiliated with the Japan Society of Intensive Care Medicine between January 2008 and December 2014 were surveyed prospectively for the development of CRBSIs. A mandatory educational program (the intervention) targeting an infection control committee consisting of physicians was developed by a multidisciplinary task force to highlight correct practices for preventing CRBSIs. The program included a 30-min video-based introduction, 120-min lectures with a number of hands-on training sessions, a post-test, posters, safety check sheets, and feedback from the infection control committee. Lectures based on the education program were held every 3 months, and participants were free to choose when they
Improved life expectancy of the global population plays a major role in the rising demand for all medical catheters. Over a 100 different types of catheters are available on the market at the moment; involved amongst others in infusion, cardiovascular, renal, haemodynamic monitoring and neurological contexts. Catheters, specifically central venous catheters (CVCs), are responsible for more device-related infections than any other internal medical device. As an illustration, catheter-related blood stream infections (CRBSIs) are both common and costly. Approximately 3 million central lines are placed in the United States each year; resulting in 150,000 cases of CRBSIs annually. In addition, 90% of all CRBSIs occur in clinical situations in which a temporary central venous catheter was used. The cost of treating CRBSIs annually in the United States ranges from $300 million to $2 billion a year ...
This prospective observational study measured idle central venous catheter (CVC)-days (no medical indication), and ward clinicians adherence to evidence-based practices for preventing short-term central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs). In 340 patients discharged from ICU over a 1-year period, 208 of 794 CVC-days (26.2%) were idle. Interventions to prevent CLABSIs were poorly implemented. Ward clinicians need education regarding risk management strategies to prevent CLABSIs, and clear accountability processes for prompt catheter removal are recommended ...
Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) continues to be one of the most deadly and costly hospital-associated infections in the US. Many lives have been saved in the past decade due to improvements that resulted in a 58 percent reduction of CLABSI in intensive care patients from 2001 to 2009. However, these infections continue to occur and more occur in other areas of the hospital outside the ICU.. Strategies to prevent these infections include the IHI Central Line Bundle, implemented by many hospitals in the US and UK and resulting in dozens achieving more than one year of no CLABSI in their ICU patients. Additional strategies have been identified by clinical experts at SHEA and CDC, adding to the growing evidence base as we strive to eliminate all of these deadly infections. ...
A central line-associated bloodstream infection is a serious infection that occurs when bacteria enter the bloodstream through a central line. A central line is a catheter (tube) that healthcare providers place in a large vein in the neck, chest, or arm to provide fluids, blood, or medications. Commonly found in an intensive care unit (ICU) setting, central lines are different from short-term intravenous catheters (IVs) because they terminate in major veins close to the heart. They can remain in place for weeks or even months, and are much more likely to cause a serious infection.. CLABSIs result in thousands of deaths each year and billions of dollars in added costs to the U.S. healthcare system, yet these infections are preventable. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 250,000 CLABSI cases occur each year in U.S. hospitals, resulting in a range of 30,000 to 62,000 deaths. It is estimated that U.S. hospitals spend up to 2.68 billion dollars ...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of antifungal lock therapy with liposomal amphotericin B (Ambisome), in combination with systemic antifungal(s), in patients with catheter-related blood stream infections with fungal organisms, whose catheter has not been removed because of the continuing critical need for central line access. The primary group of potential patients will be those with intestinal insufficiency, including post-op small bowel transplant recipients.. The recommendation of the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) is to remove all catheters with fungal infections and treat systemically for 14 days after the last positive culture. However, in certain intestinal failure patients, removal of an infected line might significantly reduce or eliminate intravenous (IV) access and create a life threatening situation. Thus, the investigators aim is to determine the usefulness of antifungal lock therapy in intestinal failure patients whose catheter has not been ...
The blood culture test market is categorized on the basis of methods, products, applications, end users, and regions. Factors such as increasing demand for rapid diagnostic techniques, high prevalence of infectious diseases, increase in healthcare expenditure and rising aging population are driving the growth of this market. Moreover, increasing blood stream infections (BSI) is another major factor propelling the growth of this market. According to the U.S. CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention), catheter-related blood stream infection (CRBSI) is the most common cause for healthcare-associated blood stream infection. Around 12% to 25% of patients who acquire BSI die every year while some of them have to prolong their hospital stay leading to increase in the overall treatment cost. A treatment of CRBSI can cost up to $56,000, once the cost of pharmacy increases, the cost of catheter and additional diagnostic tests also increases which leads to the increase in the overall healthcare cost ...
The application of chlorhexidine dressings may reduce the incidence of definite or probable catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI).
When one or two hospitals get good results with a new method for preventing infections, its interesting. When 12 do, its time to call the method important.. Which is the conclusion Gregory Schears, M.D. of Rochester, Minn. reached about his study of 12 diverse hospitals that trialed SwabCap®, a disinfection cap that is used to passively disinfect the top and threads of needleless IV connectors. Excelsior Medical, SwabCaps maker, is a Dowling & Dennis client.. Speaking at the annual meeting of the Association for Vascular Access (AVA) - and in a follow-up clinical webinar Dr. Schears said that a disinfection cap should be considered as part of best practice protocols for eliminating central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), which kill some 30,000 U.S. patients a year according to the CDC.. You can see Dr. Schears talking about the study here: disinfection cap video. Theres also a free webinar by Dr. Schears that provides more detail on his research, available under ...
Recommendation Update [July 2017] For patients aged 18 years and older: Chlorhexidine-impregnated dressings with an FDA-cleared label that specifies a clinical indication for reducing catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) or catheter-associated bloodstream infection (CABSI) are recommended to protect the insertion site of short-term, non-tunneled central venous catheters.8-12. (See Updated Recommendations on Chlorhexidine-Impregnated (C-I) Dressings Implementation Considerations for Patients Aged 18 Years and Older).. [Superseded 2011 Recommendation] Use a chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge dressing for temporary short-term catheters in patients older than 2 months of age if the CLABSI rate is not decreasing despite adherence to basic prevention measures, including education and training, appropriate use of chlorhexidine for skin antisepsis, and MSB.

Background: Catheter-associated urinary tract infection is the most common healthcare-associated infection, is considered avoidable and has cost implications for health services. Prevalence is high in nursing homes but little research has been undertaken to establish whether implementing clinical guidelines can reduce infection rates in long-term care or improve quality of urinary catheter care. Methods: Systematic search and critical appraisal of the literature Results: Three studies evaluated the impact of implementing a complete clinical guideline. Five additional studies evaluated the impact of implementing individual elements of a clinical guideline. Conclusion: Prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infections in nursing homes has received little clinical or research attention. Studies concerned with whole guideline implementation emerged as methodologically poor using recognised criteria for critically appraising epidemiological studies concerned with infection prevention. ...
Purpose We aimed to evaluate the impact of a multidimensional infection control strategy for the reduction of the incidence of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) in patients hospitalized in adult intensive care units (AICUs) of hospitals which are members of the International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC), from 40 cities of 15 developing countries: Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, India, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mexico, Morocco, Panama, Peru, Philippines, and Turkey. Methods We conducted a prospective before-after surveillance study of CAUTI rates on 56,429 patients hospitalized in 57 AICUs, during 360,667 bed-days. The study was divided into the baseline period (Phase 1) and the intervention period (Phase 2). In Phase 1, active surveillance was performed. In Phase 2, we implemented a multidimensional infection control approach that included: (1) a bundle of preventive measures, (2) education, (3) outcome surveillance, (4) process surveillance, ...
Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) develop either during or after placement of a urinary catheter. CAUTI has been shown to increase patient morbidity and mortality, increase length of stay, and add to the cost of care. This page contains CAUTI prevention resources and education for both healthcare professionals and consumers.. ...
Catheter-associated urinary tract Infection, or CAUTI, is a urinary tract infection associated with urinary catheter use. Bacteria and yeast, including those naturally occurring as part of the human microbiome, can travel along urinary catheters and cause an infection in the bladder, kidneys, and other organs connected to the urinary tract. CAUTI can lead to complications such as prostatitis, epididymitis, and orchitis in men, and cystitis, pyelonephritis, gram-negative bacteremia, endocarditis, vertebral osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, endophthalmitis, and meningitis in all patients. Complications associated with CAUTI cause discomfort to the patient, prolonged hospital stay, and increased cost and mortality. It has been estimated that more than 13,000 deaths are associated with UTIs annually.[citation needed] Estimated > 560,000 nosocomial UTIs annually.[citation needed] Urinary catheters should be inserted using aseptic technique and sterile equipment (including sterile gloves, drape, ...
Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are among the most common healthcare-associated infections reported to NHSN.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are the commonest nosocomial infections worldwide. While they are often asymptomatic and frequently cost less than nosocomial surgical site infections or nosocomial pneumonia, they are major reservoirs of antimicrobial resistant pathogens. Numerous strategies have been devised in an attempt to reduce the incidence of CAUTI but few have proven effective. Novel technologies such as the potential use of antiseptic or antimicrobial coatings on catheters hold promise for possibly reducing these infections in the fight against antimicrobial resistance. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. and the International Society of Chemotherapy.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are one of the most common nosocomial infections and can lead to numerous medical complications from the mild catheter encrustation and bladder stones to the severe septicaemia, endotoxic shock, and pyelonephritis. Catheters are one of the most commonly used medical devices in the world and can be characterised as either indwelling (ID) or intermittent catheters (IC). The primary challenges in the use of IDs are biofilm formation and encrustation. ICs are increasingly seen as a solution to the complications caused by IDs as ICs pose no risk of biofilm formation due to their short time in the body and a lower risk of bladder stone formation. Research on IDs has focused on the use of antimicrobial and antibiofilm compounds, while research on ICs has focused on preventing bacteria entering the urinary tract or coming into contact with the catheter. There is an urgent need for |i|in vitro|/i| urinary tract models to facilitate faster research and

This large-scale prospective implementation project was conducted from March 2014 to August 2016 in community nursing homes across the US that were part of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Safety Program for Long-Term Care. There were four 12-month cohorts totalling 404 nursing homes. The interventions of interest were technical and socioadaptive bundles that consisted of training for catheter care and aseptic insertion, catheter removal guidelines, regular catheter reassessments, resident and family engagement and effective communication. The main outcome of interest was urinary catheter use and catheter-associated UTIs. Other outcomes of interest included facility-level urine culture order rates. Random-effects negative binomial regression models were used to assess changes in outcomes after the 12-month implementation of the technical and socioadaptive bundles.. ...

BACKGROUND: Central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) have decreased significantly over the last decade. Further reductions in CLABSI rates should be possible. We describe a multidisciplinary approach to the reduction of CLABSIs. METHODS: This was an observational study of critically ill patients requiring central venous catheters in 8 intensive care units in a tertiary medical center. We implemented a catheter bundle that included hand hygiene, education of providers, chlorhexidine skin preparation, use of maximum barrier precautions, a dedicated line cart, checklist, avoidance of the femoral vein for catheter insertion, chlorhexidine-impregnated dressings, use of anti-infective catheters, and daily consideration of the need for the catheter. Additional measures included root cause analyses of all CLABSIs, creation of a best practice atlas for internal jugular catheters, and enhanced education on blood culture collection. Data were analyzed using the Poisson test and regression. RESULTS:
Controversy surrounds the role of central venous catheters (CVCs) impregnated with antimicrobial agents in the prevention of catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI). We reviewed the current literature to evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobial-impregnated CVCs for preventing CRBSI. Eleven randomized studies published in article form were identified that included a control group that received nonimpregnated CVCs. We evaluated study methodologies, inclusion of key patient characteristics, use of clinically relevant end points, and molecular-relatedness studies. Review of these 11 trials revealed several methodological flaws, including inconsistent definitions of CRBSI, failure to account for confounding variables, suboptimal statistical and epidemiological methods, and rare use of clinically relevant end points. This review also failed to demonstrate any significant clinical benefit associated with the use of antimicrobial-impregnated CVCs for the purpose of reducing CRBSI or improving ...

A recent study analyzed the increase in injection drug use (IDU) in Tennessee, which then drove a spike in bloodstream infections (BSI). The link between bloodstream infections and IDU is not new, but this particular case study sought to understand the burden of those IDU-related bloodstream infections involving methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) using data from the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). Since most hospitals are required to report laboratory-confirmed MRSA bloodstream infections, this resource was helpful. The team pulled more patient-specific data, though, through the Tennessee Hospital Discharge Data System (HDDS), which helped identify those patients with ICD-10-CM codes related to injection drug use.. The research focused on those community-onset MRSA bloodstream infections (CO-MRSA BSI), which were identified on or before day 3 of hospitalization. The MRSA bloodstream infection was classified as IDU-related if any of those visits documented in the ...

BACKGROUND: In low-income countries, surgical site infections (SSIs) are a very frequent form of hospital-acquired infection. Surveillance is an important method for controlling SSI but it is unclear how this can best be performed in low-income settings. AIM: To examine the epidemiological characteristics of various components of an SSI surveillance programme in a single Kenyan hospital. METHODS: The study assessed the inter-observer consistency of the surgical wound class (SWC) and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) scores using the kappa statistic. Post-discharge telephone calls were evaluated against an outpatient clinician review gold standard. The predictive value of components of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - National Healthcare Safety Network (CDC-NHNS) risk index was examined in patients having major obstetric or gynaecological surgery (O&G) between August 2010 and February 2011. FINDINGS: After appropriate training, surgeons and anaesthetists were found to ...

ABSTRACT , Background: Bacterial persisters are a quasi-dormant sub-population of cells that are tolerant to antibiotic treatment. EBX-002 is a combination of the aminoglycoside amikacin with a bacterial metabolite as a potentiator. This product is being developed with the goal of reducing recurrent infections in the treatment of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). Methods: MICs were determined by standard broth microdilution methods (CLSI M7). E. coli cultures in planktonic stationary phase were used to select for bacterial persisters. Experiments were conducted with and without a pre-selection step utilizing the fluoroquinolone ofloxacin. Using the time-kill method (CLSI M26), a panel of 10 E. coli UTI amikacin-sensitive clinical isolates were evaluated, varying the concentration of amikacin and metabolite. Cells were enumerated after 4 hr of exposure to the amikacin/metabolite combinations. Finally, the potentiator effect was similarly examined in other UTI relevant ...

Background: Peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs) are the most widely used invasive devices among inpatients. Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) are serious yet preventable events for patients. Although the contribution of PIVCs towards these infections is gradually being recognised, its role in the Spanish setting is yet to be determined. We aimed to estimate the rate and incidence of PIVC failure at Manacor hospital (Spain) as baseline within a wider quality improvement initiative. Methods: Tips from all PIVC removed during December 2017 and January 2018 in hospital wards were cultured semiquantitatively. The study population included all PIVCs inserted in adult patients admitted to any of three medical and one surgical wards, emergency department, critical care unit and operating rooms. Clinical, microbiological and ward information was collected by clinical researchers for each PIVC from insertion to removal on the study sites. CRBSI was defined per international guidelines ...
