Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Noncatheterized Adults.

07:00 EST 1st November 2015 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Noncatheterized Adults."

Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is a common finding and frequently detected in premenopausal nonpregnant women, institutionalized patients, patients with diabetes mellitus, and the ambulatory elderly population. Despite clear recommendations regarding diagnosis and management of ASB in these populations from the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), there remains an alarming rate of antimicrobial overuse. This article reviews definitions of ASB, epidemiology of ASB, literature surrounding ASB in diabetic patients, risk factors of ASB, microbiologic data regarding bacterial virulence, use of ASB strains for treatment of symptomatic urinary tract infection, and approaches to addressing translational barriers to implementing IDSA recommendations regarding diagnosis and management of ASB.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The presence of bacteria in the urine which is normally bacteria-free. These bacteria are from the URINARY TRACT and are not contaminants of the surrounding tissues. Bacteriuria can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Significant bacteriuria is an indicator of urinary tract infection.

The presence of white blood cells (LEUKOCYTES) in the urine. It is often associated with bacterial infections of the urinary tract. Pyuria without BACTERIURIA can be caused by TUBERCULOSIS, stones, or cancer.

Simple rapid heartbeats caused by rapid discharge of impulses from the SINOATRIAL NODE, usually between 100 and 180 beats/min in adults. It is characterized by a gradual onset and termination. Sinus tachycardia is common in infants, young children, and adults during strenuous physical activities.

Inflammatory responses of the epithelium of the URINARY TRACT to microbial invasions. They are often bacterial infections with associated BACTERIURIA and PYURIA.

Autoimmune diabetes in adults with slowly progressive PANCREATIC BETA CELL failure and the presence of circulating autoantibodies to PANCREATIC ISLETS cell antigens.
