A nosocomial outbreak of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections which occurred in the Urology Service of a large city hospital was studied. A case-control methodology was used to analyse patients' characteristics and the main risk factors of all cases with a positive culture during the period between March and March Cited by: Antibiotic consumption to detect epidemics of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a burn centre: A paradigm shift in the epidemiological surveillance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa nosocomial infections December. This chapter reviews the general concepts of epidemiology, which is the study of the determinants, occurrence, distribution, and control of health and disease in a defined population. Epidemiology is a descriptive science and includes the determination of rates, that is, the quantification of disease occurrence within a specific population. The most commonly studied Author: Philip S. Brachman. Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Pseudomonas is a Gram-negative bacterium ubiquitous in the environment, with over species in the genus, inhabiting a wide range of environments including water, soil, plants, animals, and all the Pseudomonas species, P. aeruginosa is the most important human pathogen, causing both community- and hospital Author: M.

Epidemiological Features of Pseudomonas aeruginosa blood stream infections in a teaching hospital in Kuala Lumpur and antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of the isolates. The results of a 3-year epidemiological investigation of infections due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a group of hospitals in Dublin are reported. The authors' experience of both active and passive methods of pyocine-typing of the isolates in this survey of 9 episodes of pseudomonas infection revealed that in 6 of the 9 episodes both typing methods were in Cited by: 8.

Intensive Care Med ; –Author: Daniel Talon, Xavier Bertrand.   Abstract. The genus Pseudomonas is widely distributed in natural and aquatic environments and includes species that can be pathogenic for plants, while others are opportunistic pathogens of humans and/or animals.P. aeruginosa is the most important human pathogen of the genus that can cause opportunistic infections in a range of patients, but other Cited by: 1.

  Abstract. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important cause of nosocomial pneumonia associated with a high morbidity and mortality rate. This bacterium expresses a variety of factors that confer resistance to a broad array of antimicrobial agents. Empirical antibiotic therapy is often inadequate because cultures from initial specimens grow strains that are Cited by: Because of the prolonged and persistent infections, they provide a valuable modelsystem for the investigation of evolutionary main focus of this thesis has been to show the link between evolutionary studies in the CF model system and general evolutionary theories, many of which have been developed from observations of other Author: Lea Mette Madsen Sommer.   A common way of conducting epidemiological studies (studying the patterns and causes of disease) is through a case-control study, where identical surveys or lab data are collected from those who are ill and those who are not. We then see if there are factors that are significantly (not due to chance) different in cases vs. controls. For example. Public health significance and occurrence of staphylococcal infections Staphylococcal infections are frequent but are usually contained by immune mechanisms at the site of entry. The highest incidence of disease usually occurs in people with poor personal hygiene, people subject to overcrowding and children.
