Bloodstream Infections (BSI) - Session 1: MRSA

Bloodstream infections (BSI) are the largest, most notable cause of sepsis, a whole-body inflammatory response to pathogenic infection. Knowing how to manage these infections can help save lives. In the UK, there are up to 100,000 cases of BSI identified each year. The use of tests carried out in microbiology laboratories helps to identify the bloodstream infections in the patient. Unfortunately, even with the testing available, about 15,000 of these patients die. This programme uses a video patient case study depicting MRSA presentation and subsequent actions of clinical staff. We explore the appropriate use of antimicrobial chemotherapy and factors affecting patient outcomes such as age, severity and co-morbidity, as well as multi-drug resistance.

 

We have a series of five programmes which aims to explore the different pathogens responsible for causing bloodstream infections and how these should be managed. This is the first of five in the series.
