The role of Isolation of the Patients on Hospital Admission for Prevention of Nosocomial Infections

Şiran Keske and others

Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) is an increasing global problem all over the world. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens, including carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative Enterobacterales, Pseudomonas spp. and Acinetobacter spp. have become common causes of HAI, such as central line-associated bloodstream infections (BSIs), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (UTIs), surgical site infections (SSIs) and ventilatory associated pneumonia (VAPs). These infections increase not only mortality but also healthcare Read More

Antimicrobial Resistance and Molecular Patterns in Community-acquired Complicated Intra-abdominal Infections: A Multicentric Study

Vildan Avkan-Oğuz and others

Complicated intra-abdominal infection (cIAI) is defined as localized or diffuse peritonitis with the involvement of multiple intraperitoneal organs. Source control and appropriate empirical antibiotics are essentials of the treatment. There are few clinical and microbiologic studies regarding cIAI in Turkey. Empiric antibiotics were selected due to diagnoses; community-acquired IAI (CA-IAI) or healthcare-associated IAI. Guidelines published on this topic lack definitive criteria for CA-IAI. Read More
