Bloodstream Infections

Description :

Bloodstream infections occur when bacteria enter the bloodstream from either a primary focus of infection in an organ, a wound or via an indwelling or implanted device. Bloodstream infections are associated with symptoms such as hypertension and fever. Bloodstream infection is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality despite the availability of broad-spectrum and effective antimicrobials and significant advances in supportive care.
