a two-center review of bacteremia in the community hospital.there are fewer studies on bacteremia coming from the community hospital, where the practicing family physician is likely to see this problem, than from the university hospital. the hypothesis of this study was that patterns of bacteremia would be different between the two types of hospitals. two hundred four patient episodes of culture-proven bacteremia from two analogous community hospitals were reviewed. bacteremia was discovered in 2.6 of 1,000 patients, which is lower than reports from univ ...19873546587
survey of bacteriologic flora of conjunctiva and cornea in healthy psittacine birds.a total of 151 eyes from healthy psittacine birds were examined by bacteriologic cultural methods. bacterial growth was not found in 41% of eyes cultured, staphylococcus epidermidis was found in 25%, alpha-hemolytic streptococci in 25%, corynebacterium spp in 7%, and staphylococcus aureus in 5%. each of the following organisms were found in 1% of the eyes; pasteurella spp, actinobacillus spp, escherichia coli, klebsiella spp, enterobacter spp, pseudomonas spp, proteus spp, and bacillus spp. more ...19836638654
microbiologic survey of long-term care facilities.we undertook a microbiologic survey of long-term care facilities to categorize bacteria found in cultures of residents. culture and sensitivity data were collected on 566 samples from indwelling bladder catheters, percutaneous gastrostomy tubes, nares, stool, wounds, pressure ulcers, and tracheostomies in 25 nebraska and iowa facilities. information was also collected on resident factors (eg, presence of indwelling urinary catheter, prior antibiotic administration) and institutional variables (e ...200010679131
prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among urinary tract pathogens isolated from female outpatients across the us in the united states, trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole (tmp-smx) is the recommended first-line treatment for uncomplicated urinary tract infections (utis) in females, in regions with resistance rates of <10-20%. unfortunately, current data on regional resistance is often not readily available to physicians and regional variability in resistance remains largely unknown. this report presents antimicrobial susceptibility data for tmp-smx and three other commonly tested antimicrobials organized by sta ...200111516934
acute postoperative wound complications after gastric surgery for morbid obesity.the acute postoperative wound complications of 225 morbidly obese patients undergoing gastric bypass were compared against the complications observed in 225 normal-sized individuals who underwent elective gastric resection for peptic ulcer disease. not only were there more wound infections (8.9 percent to 5.3 percent) in the obese population, but these infections inflicted more serious complications and a significantly increased hospital stay. while the exact cause of the increase in infections ...19751147403
secular trends in rates and etiology of nosocomial urinary tract infections at a university examine changing trends in the microbial etiology of nosocomial urinary tract infections, we reviewed culture data from a surveillance database for the calendar years 1982 to 1991. the overall rates of nosocomial urinary tract infections have increased significantly during the last decade from 2.63 per 1,000 patient-days to 4.35 per 1,000 patient-days (p = 0.0023). for specific isolates the rates of yeasts, klebsiella pneumoniae and group b streptococcus have increased significantly during th ...19938326566
