Study to Compare CAUTI Rates Following ERASE CAUTI Tray Silver vs Silver Coated Foley Catheters

2016-09-27 22:53:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The Foley catheter is one component in a catheter insertion procedure that could contribute to a catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). Improvements in the catheter insertion procedure using the ERASE CAUTI Tray system may help to lower these infection rates.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of silver, usually silver nitrate, as a reagent for producing contrast or coloration in tissue specimens.

Silver. An element with the atomic symbol Ag, atomic number 47, and atomic weight 107.87. It is a soft metal that is used medically in surgical instruments, dental prostheses, and alloys. Long-continued use of silver salts can lead to a form of poisoning known as ARGYRIA.

Inorganic compounds that contain silver as an integral part of the molecule.

A silver salt with powerful germicidal activity. It has been used topically to prevent OPHTHALMIA NEONATORUM.

Specialized regions of the cell membrane composed of pits coated with a bristle covering made of the protein CLATHRIN. These pits are the entry route for macromolecules bound by cell surface receptors. The pits are then internalized into the cytoplasm to form the COATED VESICLES.
