Epidemiological features of hospital purulent-septic infections in otolaryngological wards

Epidemiological features of hospital purulent-septic infections in otolaryngological wards

Prospective epidemiological observation in an otorhinolaryngological hospital has made it possible to distinguish the specific features of pyoseptic nosocomial infections. Such infections, appearing as cross re- and superinfections, are most frequently induced by staphylococci, as well as by Proteus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. High risk groups include patients with purulent otitis and sinusitis, who have contacted infection through instruments in examination and dressing rooms. The main sources of infection are patients with pyoseptic infections of the ear and sinuses.
