  • Anaerobic infections in children. [Review]
    Adv Exp Med Biol. 2011; 697:117-52.Brook I
  • Anaerobic bacteria commonly cause infection in children. Anaerobes are the most predominant components of the normal human skin and mucous membranes bacterial flora and are therefore a common cause of bacterial infections of endogenous origin. Because of their fastidious nature, they are difficult to isolate from infectious sites and are often overlooked. Anaerobic infections can occur in all bod…
  • [Bacterial flora in paranasal sinuses of the chronic inflammation]. [Journal Article]
    Otolaryngol Pol. 2007; 61(4):595-7.Wojdas A, Ratajczak J, … Kosek J
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our trial 15 different bacterial types were identified. In 72% cases aerobic bacteria were cultured. The most commonest pathogens were: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus coagulase negative.
  • [Diagnosis and therapy of aspiration pneumonia]. [Review]
    Dtsch Med Wochenschr. 2006 Mar 24; 131(12):624-8.Ott SR, Lode H
  • Aspiration pneumonia is an important and frequent complication following aspiration of infectious material from the oropharynx or stomach. Therefore the microbiological flora generally comprises a mixed spectrum of microbes including aerobic, microaerobic and anaerobic mircoorganisms. There are a number of risk factors for aspiration such as compromised consciousness or esophageal diseases. Aspir…
  • Endoscopically guided aerobic cultures in postsurgical patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. [Journal Article]
    Am J Rhinol. 2006 Jan-Feb; 20(1):72-6.Coffey CS, Sonnenburg RE, … Senior BA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Endoscopically guided aerobic cultures in postsurgical patients with acute exacerbations of chronic rhinosinusitis most commonly grew S. aureus, coagulase-negative staphylococci, and pseudomonal species. These cultures altered antibiotic treatment management decisions in a significant number of cases regardless of patients' clinical characteristics or history of previous culture.
  • Control of bacterial pneumonia during mechanical ventilation. [Review]
    Croat Med J. 2005 Apr; 46(2):183-96.Kolak J, van Saene HK, … Peric M
  • Pneumonia complicates the course of 50% of patients on mechanical ventilation, requiring three or more days of mechanical ventilation and potentially increasing the relative risk of mortality by 20-40%. The predominant potentially pathogenic micro-organisms are Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus (sensitive to methicillin in the previously healthy host), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (aerobi…
  • Anaerobic pulmonary infections in children. [Review]
    Pediatr Emerg Care. 2004 Sep; 20(9):636-40.Brook I
  • Pulmonary infections due to anaerobic bacteria usually occur in children prone to aspiration. The source of the anaerobic bacteria is the oropharyngeal bacterial flora, where these organisms outnumber aerobic and facultative organisms in a 10:1 ratio. The most common lower respiratory tract infections where anaerobic bacteria are recovered mixed with aerobic organisms are aspiration pneumonia, lu…

  • [Incidence of anaerobic bacteria in respiratory tract infections]. [Journal Article]
    Pneumonol Alergol Pol. 2003; 71(1-2):68-73.Kedzia A, Kwapisz E, Wierzbowska M
  • Anaerobic bacteria are predominant components of normal oral cavity, upper respiratory tract, gastrointestinal, genital and skin flora. They are involved in infections such as pneumonia, aspiration pneumonia, lung abscess and empyema. Laboratory diagnosis of anaerobic infections is based on recovering the etiological agents from clinical materials. Appropriatte specimens include: pus, purulent fl…
  • Anaerobic infections in children. [Review]
    Adv Pediatr. 2000; 47:395-437.Brook I
  • Anaerobic bacteria commonly cause infection in children. Anaerobes are the most predominant components of the normal human skin and mucous membrane bacterial flora, and are therefore a common cause of bacterial infections of endogenous origin.

  • Severe pneumonia. When and why to hospitalize. [Review]
    Postgrad Med. 1999 Apr; 105(4):117-24.Kohler RB
  • Relatively simple objective criteria are now available to predict which patients are at risk for bad outcomes from community-acquired pneumonia. In general, these include older patients and those with certain coexisting illnesses (especially neoplastic disease) or findings of altered mental status, hypotension, severe tachycardia, tachypnea, fever, acidemia, azotemia, hypoxemia, hyperglycemia, an…

  • [Theoretical basis for the antibiotic therapy of the upper part of the respiratory system]. [Review]
    Otolaryngol Pol. 1997; 51 Suppl 25:155-60.Denys A
  • The paper presents the views on the etiology of infections in the respiratory system. Beside the so called "old pathogens" such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haenophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, "atypic" microorganisms are becoming more and more important, i.e. Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, Chlamydia pneumoniae. Mixed flora with aerobic and anaerobic bacteria is observed…
  • Bacteremia shortly after placental separation during cesarean delivery. [Journal Article]
    Obstet Gynecol. 1996 May; 87(5 Pt 1):779-84.Boggess KA, Watts DH, … Eschenbach DA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Bacteremia was common after labor in this population, especially in preterm deliveries and those with positive chorioamnionic-placental culture. Many of the isolates are capable of causing endocarditis. Appraisal of the risk of bacteremia and the risk of bacterial endocarditis should be made in individual patients to assess the need for antibiotic prophylaxis.

  • Which prophylactic regimen for which surgical procedure? [Journal Article]
    Am J Surg. 1992 Oct; 164(4A Suppl):2S-5S.Paradisi F, Corti G
  • For optimal prevention of infection subsequent to a surgical intervention, it is necessary to follow a series of general principles, including the classification of the type of surgical intervention, the characteristics of the antibiotic used, and the route and the time of its administration. Moreover, with reference to the different types of surgery, other factors assume importance: the etiology…
  • Treatment of infections caused by anaerobes. [Review]
    J Chemother. 1991 Feb; 3 Suppl 2:7-11.Wilson WR
  • In summary, the selection of a specific antimicrobial agent for the treatment of infections caused by anaerobic microorganisms depends upon the site of infection, the suspected anaerobic and aerobic microorganisms causing the infection, and the pharmacokinetics and drug distribution of the antimicrobial agent. Appropriate surgical debridement or drainage of abscess material is as important, if no…
