Microbiological problems and biofilms associated with Mycobacterium chimaera in heater e cooler units used for cardiopulmonary bypass

post thumbnail

The role of heater–cooler units (HCUs) in the transmission of Mycobacterium chimaera during open heart surgery has been recognized since 2013. Subsequent investigations uncovered a remarkable global outbreak reflecting the wide distribution of implicated devices. HCUs are an essential component of cardiopulmonary bypass operations and their withdrawal would severely affect capacity for life-saving cardiac surgery. […]

Bloodstream Infection Incidence of Different Central Venous Catheters in Neonates: A Descriptive Cohort Study.

post thumbnail

Central venous catheters (CVCs) in neonates are associated with a risk of central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI). Most reports on the incidence of CLABSI in neonates focus on umbilical venous catheters (UVCs) and peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs). We evaluated the incidence and risk factors for CLABSI in a cohort of neonates with femoral venous […]

A Single Negative Result for van Quantitative PCR on Enrichment Broth Can Replace Five Rectal Swab Cultures in Screening for Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci

post thumbnail

The increased incidence of infections by vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) causes an accumulation of patients who are either colonized with VRE or flagged as potentially colonized with VRE. Since such patients require precautionary isolation upon admission to a hospital, rapid methods to establish VRE colonization status would improve patient care and optimize hospital operation. We evaluated van quantitative PCR (qPCR) […]

Core components for effective infection prevention and control programmes: new WHO evidence-based recommendations

post thumbnail

Health care-associated infections (HAI) are a major public health problem with a significant impact on morbidity, mortality and quality of life. They represent also an important economic burden to health systems worldwide. However, a large proportion of HAI are preventable through effective infection prevention and control (IPC) measures. Improvements in IPC at the national and […]

High prevalence of MRSA and ESBL among asylum seekers in the Netherlands

post thumbnail

Migration is one of the risk factors for the spread of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO). The increasing influx of migrants challenges local health care systems. To provide evidence for both hospital hygiene measure and empirical antibiotic therapy, we analysed all cultures performed in asylum seekers between January 1st 2014 and December 31st 2015 for methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and […]
