Clinical features and the role of atypical pathogens in nursing and healthcare-associated pneumonia (NHCAP): differences between a teaching university hospital and a community hospital. (1/8)OBJECTIVE: The Japan Respiratory Society documented a new category of guidelines for nursing and healthcare-associated pneumonia (NHCAP), which is distinct from community acquired pneumonia (CAP). The objective of this study was to determine the epidemiological differences between NHCAP patients in a teaching university hospital and a community hospital. In addition, to clarify the strategy for treatment of NHCAP, we investigated the role of atypical pathogens. METHODS: We analyzed 250 NHCAP and 421 CAP cases in a university hospital and 349 NHCAP and 374 CAP cases in a community hospital. RESULTS: Patient age and the incidences of poor general condition were significantly higher in the community hospital compared with those in the university hospital. The distribution and frequency of pathogens, especially multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens, were significantly different between the two hospitals. Central nervous system disorders, dementia and poor performance status, which was possibility related to aspiration pneumonia, were significantly more frequent in patients with NHCAP compared with those with CAP in both hospitals. Atypical pathogens were detected in a few cases in patients with NHCAP. CONCLUSION: There were many differences in the clinical characteristics between NHCAP patients in a university hospital and a community hospital even for hospitals located in the same area. Aspiration pneumonia was thought to be the main characteristic of NHCAP in both hospitals. Thus, all NHCAP patients did not need the same empiric therapy with a multidrug regimen directed against MDR pathogens. In addition, physicians rarely need to consider atypical pathogens in NHCAP treatment. (+info)

Chlamydia trachomatis infections: screening, diagnosis, and management. (5/8)Chlamydia trachomatis is a gram-negative bacterium that infects the columnar epithelium of the cervix, urethra, and rectum, as well as nongenital sites such as the lungs and eyes. The bacterium is the cause of the most frequently reported sexually transmitted disease in the United States, which is responsible for more than 1 million infections annually. Most persons with this infection are asymptomatic. Untreated infection can result in serious complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy in women, and epididymitis and orchitis in men. Men and women can experience chlamydia-induced reactive arthritis. Treatment of uncomplicated cases should include azithromycin or doxycycline. Screening is recommended in all women younger than 25 years, in all pregnant women, and in women who are at increased risk of infection. Screening is not currently recommended in men. In neonates and infants, the bacterium can cause conjunctivitis and pneumonia. Adults may also experience conjunctivitis caused by chlamydia. Trachoma is a recurrent ocular infection caused by chlamydia and is endemic in the developing world. (+info)

This drug sounds wonderful. I will never forget my worst bone marrow ever. I was in a teaching university hospital and naive at the time. The hemotologist was not there but his student was. I didnt know he was still a student. He told me we could proceed and he proceeded to make SEVEN attempts. The last attempt he finally got it and with it a large piece of bone. I was in agony and seeping fluid for a few days. I was told you could not be sedated for the procedure. When my son was diagnosed with leukemia I insisted he be given the twilight for his first aspiration. The following ones he was awake and I felt so badly for him. His last one I fought again and they sedated him. I could never understand why anyone should be wide awake. I made a vow to self never to have another unless I was given something. Where my son was treated they gave an ABC cocktail; ativan, bednadryl and compazine. It never worked for him and finally I won a campaign to have him given zofran. It was the first time his ...

The effectiveness of each method to predict acute kidney injury (AKI) after cardiac surgery also was compared. Design A prospective observational study. Setting A teaching university hospital. Participants Sixty patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Interventions First, RRI was measured with both methods after anesthesia induction. Second, another measurement was performed with TEE after cardiopulmonary bypass and immediately following the surgery with translumbar ultrasound. To test the correlation between the 2 methods and to plot a Bland-Altman graph, preoperative RRI values measured by both techniques were used. Receiver operating characteristic curves also were plotted to compare the diagnostic values of RRI measured intraoperatively by TEE after cardiopulmonary bypass and by ...

Actually, your protein level is due to a traumatic tap, as evidenced by the "reddish" appearance of the fluid sample. Blood in the CSF will artificially raise the protein level and also distort other values as well. A clean tap is necessary before trying to determine any clinical significance of the values and the actual white count fractionation would be the determining factor for whether meningitis is present. Early meningitis does not always show up in CSF values. Again, your lab values are somewhat worthless because its a traumatic tap and will affect the values seeking to be determined. If you had this performed at a teaching university, then get the needle out of the hands of the students or residents and into the hands of the attending. Best regards, J Cottle, ...

Chlamydia trachomatis serovars D-K are the leading cause of bacterially-acquired sexually transmitted infections in the United States. As an obligate intracellular pathogen, C. trachomatis infects columnar epithelial cells of the genital mucosae and can cause deleterious sequelae such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy. Several chlamydial antigens reach the host cell cytosol prior to the natural release of chlamydiae at the end of the developmental cycle. While some of these extra-inclusion antigens traffic to the host cell surface, others remain intracellular where they are proposed to influence vital host cell functions and antigen trafficking and presentation. The research herein examines the escape and trafficking of the immunodominant chlamydial antigens MOMP, LPS, and cHsp60 within C. trachomatis serovar E-infected polarized human endometrial epithelial cells. Studies using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and immuno-TEM report the novel escape
c The Associated Press. SAN ANTONIO (March 3, 2001) - Asthma sufferers appear to be unusually prone to heart disease, a study found, offering new clues about the hazards of lingering inflammation.. Other research has linked asthma with heart trouble, but those studies did not clearly distinguish the effect of smoking, which contributes to both asthma and cardiovascular disease.. In the new study, doctors from the Kaiser Permanente health plan found that even nonsmokers have a clearly elevated risk of heart disease. It appears to be at least one-third higher than the risk in people without asthma.. The reason for this is unclear. The researchers speculate that asthmatics chronic lung inflammation might damage their arteries over time. However, they said it is also possible that medicines used to treat asthma have ill effects on the heart.. ``This is a beginning, said Dr. Carlos Iribarren, the lead author. ``Its a provocative finding that we need to understand.. Iribarren presented the ...
Research into community acquired pneumonia over the past two decades has focused on developing tools to measure the severity of illness and which antibiotics to choose. Several tools can now help clinicians identify patients with severe community acquired pneumonia in clinical settings.1 In people with severe disease, international guidelines recommend early treatment with broad spectrum antibiotics, which provide cover for atypical pathogens.2 It is less clear how best to manage patients during their stay in hospital. In this weeks BMJ, a randomised trial by Oosterheert and colleagues reports the effect of switching from intravenous to oral antibiotics after three days rather than seven days in people with severe community acquired pneumonia.3 Until now, the lack of quality trial data in areas such as route of antibiotic administration, duration of treatment, and assessment of clinical stability has led to a conservative approach to … ...
Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. Its caused by germs, such as bacteria and viruses, and fungi. Some people develop pneumonia by coming in contact with germs in the course of daily life, such as at school, work, or the gym. This is sometimes called community-acquired pneumonia. Others develop pneumonia during a stay in the hospital. This is called hospital-acquired pneumonia. And still others develop pneumonia following some type of contact with the health care system.

BACKGROUND: Since healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP) is heterogeneous, clinical characteristics and outcomes are different from region to region. There can also be differences between HCAP patients hospitalized in secondary or tertiary hospitals. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical characteristics of HCAP patients admitted into secondary community hospitals. METHODS: This was a retrospective study conducted in patients with HCAP or community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) hospitalized in two secondary hospitals between March 2009 and January 2011. RESULTS: Of a total of 303 patients, 96 (31.7%) had HCAP. 42 patients (43.7%) resided in a nursing home or long-term care facility, 36 (37.5%) were hospitalized in an acute care hospital for , 2 days within 90 days, ten received outpatient intravenous therapy, and eight attended a hospital clinic or dialysis center. HCAP patients were older. The rates of patients with CURB65 scores of 3 or more (22.9% vs. 9.1%; p = 0.001) and PSI class IV or more ...
Q: Is it appropriate to assign code Y95, nosocomial condition, based on the documentation of healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP) or hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAC)? It is appropriate to assign code Y95, nosocomial condition, for documented healthcare associated conditions. Should this still be queried for specificity, and should the HAC condition (i.e. pneumonia) be coded as bacterial, viral, or something else?

From its beginnings in the mid 1980s, 3-D printing has evolved from simple rapid prototype manufacturing, to now include advanced fabrication applications within construction, medical, electronics, and consumer product industries. Furthermore, this technique is now widely used for automotive and aviation parts fabrication; Local Motors™ is now taking pre-orders on complete 3-D printed cars that will soon reach the consumer market. The cost of 3-D printers has been declining steadily, which will significantly impact the future of manufacturing within virtually all industrial sectors.. One of the latest areas to be explored by this technology is bioprinting. Sounding like a page out of a science fiction novel, 3-D printing techniques have been used to generate prosthetic limbs, titanium bone implants, blood vessels, and even a complete jawbone. Chinese researchers have recently reported the successful 3-D printing of human organs using living tissue. In fact, it has been predicted that fully ...
Treatment. Painless or mildly painful small blisters can be treated at home. Use moleskin or tape that has a hole cut in the center. Larger or very painful blisters sometimes need to be drained. This can be done by making a small hole in the blister. Use a clean needle or pin. Let all the blister fluid drain out. Then the blister can be covered with antibiotic ointment and a dressing ...
Article: Cellulitis: current insights into pathophysiology and clinical management (full text) - November 2017 - NJM
Streptococci and S. aureus are the most common pathogens identified in patients with cellulitis (table 2), and accumulating evidence from prospective convalescent serology studies suggests that , 70% are caused by streptococci.4,79 Atypical pathogens can be observed in patients with selected conditions (table 3). In contrast to diabetic foot infections, diabetic non-foot infections are generally not caused by atypical pathogens.87 In the Netherlands, the preferred small spectrum agent covering both methicillin-susceptible S. aureus and beta-haemolytic streptococci is flucloxacillin. Confirmed streptococcal infections can be treated with benzylpenicillin or feneticillin. Co-amoxiclav and clindamycin are alternative options. Clindamycin is recommended in case of beta-lactam allergies, and inhibits streptococcal and staphylococcal toxin production. Clindamycin is also thought to have better tissue penetration than beta-lactams. However, clindamycin is highly concentrated intracellularly, and ...
The emergence of multi-drug resistant and atypical pathogens has led to a rise in post-operative complications in the hospital (nosocomial) setting in a range of surgical procedures involving skin incisions. At times, the risk of such complications has reduced therapeutic options for trauma patients and wounded military personnel. NM-IL-12, as an immune stimulant, may work by a different mechanism than traditional antibiotics, and it is hoped that the drug will exhibit broad-spectrum activity against many bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic pathogens implicated in cutaneous infections by increasing location concentrations of Interferon Gamma. Neumedicines is planning to develop NM-IL-12 for use as a surgical incision infection anti-infective prophylactic agent. Its potential for this application has been documented by the accelerated closure of full-thickness wounds in mice by the mouse-version of IL-12 (called rMuIL-12). The safety of NM-IL-12 is being tested in healthy human ...
