Epidemiological study on the infections due to pathogenic microorganisms in an intensive care unit


, : Epidemiological study on the infections due to pathogenic microorganisms in an intensive care unit. Igiene Moderna 86(1): 65-76

The incidence of infections by Gram-positive, Gram-negative microorganisms and Candida spp. is increasing in hospitals. It is higher in immunocompromised patients. The results of an epidemiological study carried out in an organ transplantation department, during the period January 1983-July 1985, are reported. The data obtained show a lower incidence of infections, which is due to different factors (microbiological monitoring, improved surgical techniques, using of Cyclosporine A as immunosuppressive agent).
