*  Clinical features of central venous catheter-related candidemia
Abstract:. INTRODUCTION: Early detection of catheter-related candidemia is necessary to ensure that patients receive prompt and appropriate treatment. The aim of the present case-control study is to investigate the clinical features of catheter-related candidemia at disease onset, so as to determine the clinical indications for empiric antifungal therapy.. METHODS: All 41 cases of catheter-related candidemia from September 2009 to August 2011 at a teaching hospital were included in the present study. To determine the characteristics that were risk factors for developing catheter-related candidemia, we compared all cases of catheter-related candidemia with all 107 cases of catheter-related blood stream infection (CRBSI) caused by non-Candida spp.. RESULTS: In comparison with CRBSI due to non-Candida spp., the duration of catheter use was significantly longer in cases of catheter-related candidemia (13.9 ± 9.0 days vs. 23.2 ± 25.2 days). There was also a significant difference in the frequency ...

*  Fungemia - Wikipedia
The most commonly known pathogen is Candida albicans, causing roughly 70% of fungemias, followed by Candida glabrata with 10%, Aspergillus with 1% and Saccharomyces as the fourth most common.[citation needed] However, the frequency of infection by C. glabrata, Saccharomyces boulardii, Candida tropicalis, C. krusei and C. parapsilosis is increasing, perhaps because significant use of fluconazole is common or due to increase in antibiotic use.[citation needed]. New emerging pathogen: Candida auris is an emerging multidrug-resistant (MDR) yeast that can cause invasive infections and is associated with high mortality. It was first described in 2009 after being isolated from external ear discharge of a patient in Japan. Since the 2009 report, C. auris infections, specifically fungemia, have been reported from South Korea, India, South Africa, and Kuwait. Although published reports are not available, C. auris has also been identified in Colombia, Venezuela, Pakistan, and the ...
*  The value of a risk model for early-onset candidemia | Critical Care | Full Text
In a previous edition of Critical Care, Shorr and colleagues developed a simple weight risk score for identifying patients with candidemia upon hospital admission [1]. Using recursive partitioning, they determined the best discriminators of Candida bloodstream infections in patients upon hospitalization (identified as a positive blood culture 1 day prior to or 2 days after admission) by retrospectively reviewing the CareFusion Outcomes Research Database, comprising 64,109 bloodstream infection cases admitted to 176 acute care hospitals from 2000 to 2005. Three sets of models were applied (equal weight, unequal weight, and full weight with additional variables) for sensitivity analysis. The risk score was then validated using the 2006/2007 year cohort for a total of 24,685 bloodstream infections.. The rate of candidemia was 1.2% of all bloodstream infections for the 5-year derivation cohort, and was 1.3% for the validation cohort. The rate was increased to 2.3% and 3.1%, respectively, for those ...

IVTEAM #Intravenous literature: Hoffmann-Santos, H.D., Paula, C.R., Yamamoto, A.C., Tadano, T. and Hahn, R.C. (2013) Six-Year Trend Analysis of Nosocomial Candidemia and Risk factors in Two Intensive Care Hospitals in Mato Grosso, Midwest Region of Brazil. Mycopathologia. October 11th. [epub ahead of print].. Abstract:. We conducted this cross-sectional retrospective study using clinical and laboratory data from two tertiary hospitals in Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, Brazil, in order to explore the risk factors and estimate mortality, prevalence and lethality of candidemia between 2006 and 2011. A total of 130 episodes of candidemia were identified. The prevalence of candidemia was 1.8 per 1,000 admissions, the mortality rate was 0.9 per 1,000 admissions, and the lethality was 49.2 %. The main agent in this population was Candida parapsilosis (n = 50), followed by C. albicans (n = 45). Comparison between the numbers of episodes in the two triennia revealed that the non-albicans group grew by 48.2 %. The ...

*  Welcome to CDC stacks | Active Surveillance of Candidemia, Australia - 16303 | Emerging Infectious Diseases
Population-based surveillance for candidemia in Australia from 2001 to 2004 identified 1,095 cases. Annual overall and hospital-specific incidences were 1.81/100,000 and 0.21/1,000 separations (completed admissions), respectively. Predisposing factors included malignancy (32.1%), indwelling vascular catheters (72.6%), use of antimicrobial agents (77%), and surgery (37.1%). Of 919 episodes, 81.5% were inpatient healthcare associated (IHCA), 11.6% were outpatient healthcare associated (OHCA), and 6.9% were community acquired (CA). Concomitant illnesses and risk factors were similar in IHCA and OHCA candidemia. IHCA candidemia was associated with sepsis at diagnosis ( ...

I recently went back to work and my 12 week old stopped taking a bottle about 3 days before my first day back. He was taking Dr. Browns bottles from 10 weeks on just fine, and then he just stopped. My mother in law is watching him and feeds him from a medicine dropper. He probably only gets about 4 oz while I am away at work for 10 hours. At 15 pounds, I know that just isnt cutting it.

The more I read and see of the McCanns they make me feel physically sick. Here are two 'parents' (for want of a better word) who have done nothing except court the media and arrange meetings with ambassadors or dignataries just days after their beautiful daughter went 'missing'. Why were they not distraught or out searching, how could they have a mind to waste time and effort writing a blog or jogging no searching on their part ever took place, as Kate said ' it was too dark' to bother to go out an look because they knew exactly what had happened to her. They may have fooled the public in 2007 but now their lies are so evident and public opinion is well and truly against them.Gerry the controlling egotistical freak with Kate the unbalanced who knows what.
