Incidence of Clostridium difficile Infection After Sepsis Protocol Antibiotics.

Summary of "Incidence of Clostridium difficile Infection After Sepsis Protocol Antibiotics."

The management of sepsis includes the prompt administration of intravenous antibiotics. There is concern that sepsis treatment protocols may be inaccurate in identifying true sepsis and exposing patients to potentially harmful antibiotics, sometimes unnecessarily. This study was designed to investigate those concerns by focusing on in-hospital Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), which is a known complication of exposure to antibiotics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

A common inhabitant of the colon flora in human infants and sometimes in adults. It produces a toxin that causes pseudomembranous enterocolitis (ENTEROCOLITIS, PSEUDOMEMBRANOUS) in patients receiving antibiotic therapy.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

An acute inflammation of the INTESTINAL MUCOSA that is characterized by the presence of pseudomembranes or plaques in the SMALL INTESTINE (pseudomembranous enteritis) and the LARGE INTESTINE (pseudomembranous colitis). It is commonly associated with antibiotic therapy and CLOSTRIDIUM DIFFICILE colonization.
