Diagnosis, management, and prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infections - Abstract

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is common, costly, and causes significant patient morbidity.

Catheter use and infection reduction in plastic surgery - Abstract

BACKGROUND: Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are the most common hospital-associated infection and can result in increased health care costs, morbidity and even mortality.

Biofilm formation on catheters is thought to contribute to persistence of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), which represent the most frequent nosocomial infections.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection: A successful prevention effort employing a multipronged initiative at an academic medical center - Abstract

An interdisciplinary clinical improvement workgroup was formed at this academic medical center with the goal of reducing catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).

Indwelling urinary catheters in acute care: A step-by-step clinical pathway for nurses

Abstract

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 of every 10 to 20 patients hospitalized in the United States develops a healthcare-associated infection (HAI). Urinary tract infection (UTI), a type of HAI, accounts for approximately 32% of infections reported by acute care hospitals and approximately 18% to 25% of all nosocomial bacteremia. The majority of hospital-associated UTIs are caused by instrumentation of the urinary tract, mainly from an indwelling urinary catheter (IUC). Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) can result in increased morbidity, mortality, hospital cost, and length of stay.

Quality gaps in documenting urinary catheter use and infectious outcomes - Abstract

Objective: To describe the frequency of use of all types of urinary catheters, including but not limited to indwelling catheters, as well as positive cultures associated with the various types. We also determined the accuracy of catheter-days reporting at our institution.

Evaluation of the treatment of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal urinary tract infections in a large academic medical center - Abstract

Background: Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) are a common cause of nosocomial urinary tract infections (UTIs) among hospitalized patients. Clinicians need to differentiate between VRE-associated urinary colonization, asymptomatic bacteriuria, and UTIs to determine the need for treatment and length of therapy.

Multimodal supervision programme to reduce catheter associated urinary tract infections and its analysis to enable focus on labour and cost effective infection control measures in a tertiary care hospital in India - Abstract

Background: Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) contribute 30%-40% of all the nosocomial infections and they are associated with substantially increased institutional death rates. A multimodal supervision program which incorporates training of the staff with respect to infection control measures can be effective in reducing the CAUTIs in hospitals.

Types of urethral catheter for reducing symptomatic urinary tract infections in hospitalised adults requiring short-term catheterisation: multicentre randomised controlled trial and economic evaluation of antimicrobial- and antiseptic-impregnated urethral

Complete Title: Types of urethral catheter for reducing symptomatic urinary tract infections in hospitalised adults requiring short-term catheterisation: multicentre randomised controlled trial and economic evaluation of antimicrobial- and antiseptic-impregnated urethral catheters (the CATHETER trial) - Abstract

Impact of a multidimensional infection control strategy on catheter-associated urinary tract infection rates in the adult intensive care units of 15 developing countries:

Combinatorial small-molecule therapy prevents uropathogenic Escherichia coli catheter-associated urinary tract Infections in mice - Abstract

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) constitute the majority of nosocomial urinary tract infections (UTIs) and pose significant clinical challenges.

Findings of the International Nosocomial Infection Control Consortium (INICC), Part I:

Biofilm formation of Klebsiella pneumoniae on urethral catheters requires either type 1 or type 3 fimbriae - Abstract

Urinary catheters are standard medical devices utilized in both hospital and nursing home settings, but are associated with a high frequency of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI).

The metal ion-dependent adhesion site motif of the Enterococcus faecalis EbpA pilin mediates pilus function in catheter-associated urinary tract infection - Abstract

Though the bacterial opportunist Enterococcus faecalis causes a myriad of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), including catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs), little is known about the virulence mechanisms that it employs.

Surveys of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in a university hospital intensive care unit in China - Abstract

In developed nations, urinary tract is the most common infection site among healthcare-associated infection (HCAI).

A comparison of 3 metrics to identify health care-associated infections - Abstract

BACKGROUND: The best approach to measurement of health care-associated infection rates is controversial.

National incidence and outcomes of postoperative urinary retention in the Surgical Care Improvement Project - Abstract

BACKGROUND: The national incidence of postoperative urinary retention (POUR), its risk factors, and associated outcomes are not well understood.
