Reduction of Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infection With a Daily Nursing Review of the Indication

2014-07-23 21:10:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the daily nurse review of the indication of the urinary catheter compared to the everyday care of the working staff is effective to reduce the rate of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in adults hospitalized.

Description

Healthcare-associated infection (HAI)in hospitalized patients are very frequent, especially the catheter-associated urinary tract infection, which prolongs the hospital stay and costs, and is about 3 times more likely to die during hospitalization than patients not infected.

The measures of aseptic insertion and closed systems of collection, as well as the rational use of the probe reduce the risk for infection.

A checklist that contains the agreed indications of catheter, related to obstruction, incontinence, skin lesions in sacral region, monitoring or surgical procedures allows the daily review of the indication of the probe. If the patient doesn´t meet at least one of the criteria, should be recommended the withdrawal of the catheter.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.

A second-generation cephalosporin administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Its bactericidal action results from inhibition of cell wall synthesis. It is used for urinary tract infections, lower respiratory tract infections, and soft tissue and bone infections.

Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.

Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.
