E Coli In Wound
A total of 8 different organisms in my wound: e. Coli, acinetobacter baumannii, stenotrophomonas, are these hospital acquired infections?
Yes.: They can all be hospital acquired infections. ...Read more
Misdirected sewage: E coli is an inhabitant of the colon and is involved in digestion. It is easily dealt with in modern sewage treatment. If it gets loose into the soil or water supply, then it can become a hazard. It gets there from badly designed or old sewage systems or sometimes from septic systems too close to wells, and other water sources. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In vitro, yes but...: In vivo, it would render your fish dish unpalatable and rather expensive. Since silver ions (single free-form silver) produce free radicles that can kill bacteria(the process can be done in a petri dish), it would mean impregnating and infusing your fish with silver- yuck. ...Read more
Strep staph: Nares and anus.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes, proper cooking: Thoroughly cooking foods, and proper food-safety habits, kills e. Coli bacteria. The "bad" e. Coli in food poisoning at first causes intestinal symptoms such as diarrhea. If it goes on to damage the blood and the kidneys, more organs get affected, and skin rashes looking like tiny blood spots or like bruises can appear. This second, serious stage of the illness is called hemolytic uremic syndrome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bacterial cause.: Urinary tract infections occur when pathogenic bacteria proliferate in the urine, causing inflammation in the urethra, bladder and sometimes the kidney. E. Coli is the most common cause, which is usually found in the colon but can contaminate the urine since the urethra and anus are in such close proximity. Infections are cleared with antibiotics, and should be confirmed by urine culture. ...Read more
If infection suspect: Checking for infection is general you rarely can suspect klebsiella but a culture grows 1 or more bacteria type. It is isolated in another culture and identified under the microscope or by specific chemical tests, small antibiotic discs placed hopefully slow the growth down and the best antibiotic will hopefully be determined. ...Read more
What antibiotic is used to treat a post op wound with klebsiella, non enteroccal strep & e coli in a diabetic?
Depends: On where the post-op wound is located and the reason for the surgery, the manner in which the cultures were collected, the sensitivities to antibiotics as determined in the laboratory, things to which the patient may be allergic, and a variety of other factors. It is unusual to see multiple different organisms without some reason. Discuss with surgeon and infectious diseases consultant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me in my wound: e. coli, acinetobacter baumannii, stenotrophomonas, achromobacterbe considered hospital acquired infections?
Acinetobacter: Acinetobacter baumannii is usually only seen in very ill patient in medical settings. ...Read more
What is the antibiotic used to combat klebsiella, e coli & non enteroccal strep found in poorly healed lower abdominal post op wound. Patient is diab?
Infected?: Open surgical wounds will always grow bacteria upon culture but are not always infected per se. If the wound is red and is discharging pus, it requires therapy and may need to be opened for better drainage. Antimicrobials can be chosen based on the sensitivity patterns of the isolates. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stool sample shows heavy growth of nontoxogenic e. Coli & streptococcus salivarius. Is this abnormal/problematic?
No: Assuming you are not symptomatic, these bacterial organisms are considered part of the normal gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The GI tract starts at the mouth and ends at the anus. Strep salivarius lives in the mouth whereas E. coli lives in the intestines. In only very rare instances does this strep cause illness. The type of E. Coli mentioned causes UTIs since the urinary and GI tracts are so close ...Read more
Been prescibed trimethoprim 300mg for e coli in urine. Suspected in vagina, offensive odour. Will antibiotics clear up vaginal e coli?
Not exactly: You're right to prompt the question, in that bacteria can be made more virulent by uptake of "signals" from a bacteriophage. Also, an e.Coli infection does not preclude a superimposed or secondary viral illness--which together compromises the host patient more than a single infection might. However, flu viruses can not live within e.Coli. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The facts: E.coli is a bacteria that is commonly found in the digestive tract of warm & cold blooded animals, including humans. It is commonly spread by fecal contamination. Its prevalence makes it a marker for contamination of lakes/city water supplies etc. Certain strains are responsible for human disease, but most live harmlessly in your gut. Good personal hygiene/avoiding contaminated sources stops it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
