Effectiveness of Routine Sterile Gloving in Blood Culture

2014-08-27 03:19:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether routine sterile gloving can lower contamination rates in blood culture.

Description

Because contamination during sampling for blood culture may interfere in interpreting the results of blood culture, lowering the contamination rates in blood culture is very important. According to current guideline, routine sterile gloving is not recommended. We hypothesized that routine sterile gloving can lower contamination rates in blood culture.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A putative protein interaction module, approximately 70 amino acids long, that forms a small five-helix bundle with two large interfaces which may homo- and hetero-oligomerize, or bind non-sterile-alpha motif targets. The sterile alpha motif is present in a wide variety of eukaryotic proteins that function in diverse biological processes.

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 only species in the genus GARDNERELLA, and previously classed as Haemophilus vaginalis. This bacterium, also isolated from the female genital tract of healthy women, is implicated in the cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL). It occasionally causes postpartum bacteremia and bacteremia following a transurethral resection of the prostate.

Diagnostic procedures, such as laboratory tests and x-rays, routinely performed on all individuals or specified categories of individuals in a specified situation, e.g., patients being admitted to the hospital. These include routine tests administered to neonates.

A human and animal pathogen causing mesenteric lymphadenitis, diarrhea, and bacteremia.
