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 in 2 (aerobic and anaerobic) bottles for blood cultures in neonates.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Prospective study at Duke University Hospital comparing the Karius Infectious Disease Diagnostic Sequencing Assay to blood culture results in admitted patients with bacteremia/septicemia.
RAPIDS-GN is a multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled trial to evaluate the following strategies for patients with confirmed gram-negative bacillus bacteremia (GNB): 1. Stand...
Implementation of the initial specimen diversion technique, in which the first milliliter of the venipuncture sample is not injected into the culture bottle, led to a significant reduction...
For febrile children who are evaluated in a pediatric emergency department (PED), blood culture can be considered the laboratory criterion standard to detect bacteremia. However, high rates of negativ...
We report a case of bloodstream infection with the anaerobic bacterium Ruminococcus gnavus (R. gnavus), associated with intestinal perforation in a patient undergoing chemotherapy for multiple myeloma...
Vascular infections (VI) are potentially catastrophic complications of nontyphoid Salmonella (NTS). We aimed to develop a scoring model incorporating information from blood culture time to positivity ...
Cancer chemotherapy-associated febrile neutropenia (FN) is a common condition that is deadly when bacteremia is present. Detection of bacteremia depends on culture, which takes days, and no accurate p...
The purpose of our study was to examine the extent of anaerobic bacteriuria in catheterized patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) and to search for risk factors for anaerobic bacteriuria. A urine ...
Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).
The presence of viable bacteria circulating in the blood. Fever, chills, tachycardia, and tachypnea are common acute manifestations of bacteremia. The majority of cases are seen in already hospitalized patients, most of whom have underlying diseases or procedures which render their bloodstreams susceptible to invasion.
The species Tursiops truncatus, in the family Delphinidae, characterized by a bottle-shaped beak and slightly hooked broad dorsal fin.
Gram-negative aerobic cocci of low virulence that colonize the nasopharynx and occasionally cause MENINGITIS; BACTEREMIA; EMPYEMA; PERICARDITIS; and PNEUMONIA.
In tissue culture, hairlike projections of neurons stimulated by growth factors and other molecules. These projections may go on to form a branched tree of dendrites or a single axon or they may be reabsorbed at a later stage of development. "Neurite" may refer to any filamentous or pointed outgrowth of an embryonal or tissue-culture neural cell.
