This programme is part three in a series of five which aims to explore the different pathogens responsible for causing bloodstream infections and how these should be managed.
Bloodstream infections (BSI) are the largest, most notable cause of sepsis, a whole-body inflammatory response to pathogenic infection. Every year in the UK, there are up to 100,000 cases of BSI identified with the aid of tests done in microbiology laboratories – about 15,000 of these patients die. This programme utilises a video patient case study depicting MRSA presentation and subsequent actions of clinical staff. Appropriate use of antimicrobial chemotherapy and factors affecting patient outcomes such as age, severity and co-morbidity are also explored as well as multi-drug resistance.
