Increasing the Yield of Blood Cultures in Neonates

2014-08-27 03:17:37 | BioPortfolio


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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
