To determine whether the time lag between when blood cultures are drawn and when shaking chills begin is associated with blood culture positivity.
This article was published in the following journal.
We aimed to describe the current time to positivity (TTP) of blood cultures in onco-hematological patients with febrile neutropenia. We assessed the probability of having multidrug-resistant gram-nega...
We investigated the incidence of and risk factors for liver involvement (LI) in patients with brucellosis in Turkey. Diagnosis was established by blood cultures (BCs) or compatible clinical presentati...
Sepsis guidelines recommend obtaining blood cultures before starting anti-infective therapy in patients with sepsis. However, little is known how antibiotic treatment prior to sampling affects bacteri...
The volume of blood sampled for culture critically influences the results. This study aimed to determine (1) the volume of blood submitted for culture, (2) the proportion of blood cultures with adequa...
Bloodstream infections are a major cause of death with increasing incidence and severity. Blood cultures are still the gold standard for microbiological diagnosis, but are rather slow. Molecular metho...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of a single blood sample of 1cc in an aerobic bottle will provide a better yield and time to positivity than 2 samples of 0.5 cc i...
Febrile neutropenia are microbiologically documented in only 30% of the cases, and almost exclusively by blood cultures. The reasons for this low documentation are likely multiple: (1) som...
Indocarditis is an endogenous infection acquired when organisms entering the blood stream establish on the heart valves, therefore, any bacteremia can potentially result in endocarditis. ...
To look for the replication of HHV6 by PCR in the skin, in these patients with haemopathies presenting an exanthema. This will make it possible to evaluate the prevalence of the positivity...
Current recommendations for the diagnosis of bacteremia based on the embodiment February-March blood cultures separated by a minimum interval of 30 minutes. Each blood culture comprises se...
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Macrolide antibiotic obtained from cultures of Streptomyces fradiae. The drug is effective against many microorganisms in animals but not in humans.
A technique for maintaining or growing CELLS in vitro. Cultures of dispersed cells derived directly from fresh TISSUES are called primary cell cultures. Cultures may also derive from established CELL LINE usually stored frozen.
Phosphorus used in foods or obtained from food. This element is a major intracellular component which plays an important role in many biochemical pathways relating to normal physiological functions. High concentrations of dietary phosphorus can cause nephrocalcinosis which is associated with impaired kidney function. Low concentrations of dietary phosphorus cause an increase in calcitriol in the blood and osteoporosis.
Syphilis serodiagnosis employing as the antigen Treponema pallidum obtained from rabbit syphilis orchitis. Treponemes are kept alive for a few hours in a special medium. When syphilitic serum and complement are added and incubated, the treponemes are immobilized, i.e., stop moving.
