Healthcare-associated infections in intensive care units: epidemiology and infection control in low-to-middle income countries.
Alp E and Damani N. J Infect Dev Ctries 2015 - Review. PMID 26517477 Free article.
Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are major patient safety problems in hospitals, especially in intensive care units (ICUs). Patients in ICUs are prone to HAIs due to reduced host defense mechanisms, low compliance with infection prevention and control (IPC) measures due to lack of education and training, and heavy workload and low staffing levels, leading to cross-transmission of microorganisms from patient to patient. ...

Burden of endemic health-care-associated infection in developing countries: systematic review and meta-analysis.
Allegranzi B, et al. Lancet 2011 - Review. PMID 21146207
Studies containing full or partial data from developing countries related to infection prevalence or incidence-including overall health-care-associated infection and major infection sites, and their microbiological cause-were selected. ...INTERPRETATION: The burden of health-care-associated infection in developing countries is high. Our findings indicate a need to improve surveillance and infection-control practices. ...

The preventable proportion of healthcare-associated infections 2005-2016: Systematic review and meta-analysis.
Schreiber PW, et al. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2018. PMID 30234463 Free article.
OBJECTIVE: The preventable proportion of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) may decrease over time as standards of care improve. We aimed to assess the proportion of HAIs prevented by multifaceted infection control interventions in different economic settings. ...

Hospital epidemiology and infection control in acute-care settings.
Sydnor ER and Perl TM. Clin Microbiol Rev 2011 - Review. PMID 21233510 Free PMC article.
Growing rates of HAIs alongside evidence suggesting that active surveillance and infection control practices can prevent HAIs led to the development of hospital epidemiology and infection control programs. ...In this review, we summarize the history of the development of hospital epidemiology and infection control, common HAIs and the pathogens causing them, and the structure and role of a hospital epidemiology and infection control program....

Epidemiology of ICU-acquired pneumonia
Ferrer M and Torres A. Curr Opin Crit Care 2018 - Review. PMID 30080701
Hospital Acquired Pneumonia Prevention Initiative-2: Incidence of nonventilator hospital-acquired pneumonia in the United States
Baker D and Quinn B. Am J Infect Control 2018. PMID 29050903 Free article.
Most NV-HAP infections (70.8%) were acquired outside of intensive care units (ICUs); 18.8% required transfer into the ICU. In the 24 hours prior to diagnosis, most of the patients did not have fundamental hospital care associated with pneumonia prevention. ...

Ventilator-associated pneumonia agents in Brazilian Neonatal Intensive Care Units - a systematic review
Silva ARAD, et al. Braz J Infect Dis 2018 - Review. PMID 30278872 Free article.
INTRODUCTION: Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is one of the most common healthcare-associated infections (HAI) in neonates admitted in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). ...In all studies included, rates of device-associated infections were described, including VAP rates. The VAP incidence density, in exclusively Brazilian NICU, ranged from 3.2 to 9.2 per 1000 ventilator-days. ...

Reduced nosocomial infection rate in a neonatal intensive care unit during a 4-year surveillance period.
Chen YC, et al. J Chin Med Assoc 2017. PMID 28479017 Free article.
During the study period, the rate of infection episodes decreased from 19.0% to 11.1% (P = 0.01). Additionally, the average hospital-acquired infection rate decreased from 6.26 cases per 1000 patient-days to 4.09 cases per 1000 patient-days (P = 0.03). The most common infection site was blood stream infection, which decreased from 8.3% to 3.7% (P = 0.03). The total catheter-related infection rates of the blood stream, lower respiratory tract, and urinary tract decreased from 13.6% to 5.9% (P = 0.003). ...

The Epidemiology of Healthcare-associated Infections in Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Units.
Alten JA, et al. Pediatr Infect Dis J 2018 - Clinical Trial. PMID 29280785 Free PMC article.
BACKGROUND: Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) represent serious complications for patients within pediatric cardiac intensive care units (CICU). ...Aggregate rates for the 4 primary HAIs are as follows: central line-associated blood stream infection, 1.1/1000 line days; catheter-associated urinary tract infections, 1.5/1000 catheter days; ventilator-associated pneumonia, 1.9/1000 ventilator days; surgical site infections, 0.81/100 operations. ...
