Increased Detection Of Carbapenemase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae On Post-Clean Sampling Of Burns Units Wet Surfaces.

Summary of "Increased Detection Of Carbapenemase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae On Post-Clean Sampling Of Burns Units Wet Surfaces."

Wet surface biofilms are a potential reservoir for multidrug-resistant Gram-negative organisms, including carbapenamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE). Recognition of environmental sources is important in reducing secondary patient transmission. We report the increased detection of bla-IMP-4+ CPE in environmental samples from floor drains in Burns Unit shower rooms, when collected following cleaning as compared to pre-cleaning. We propose that disruption of biofilms during cleaning may account for the increased detection of multi-resistant organisms. The results highlight the role of the wet environment as an under-recognised potential source of CPE transmission. Environmental screening focusing on pre-cleaning samples alone will likely under-estimate environmental contamination.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of Enterobacteriaceae that are resistant to CARBAPENEMS, primarily due to the acquisition of carbapenemase (BETA-LACTAMASE) genes.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.
