Managing common infections: guidance for primary care
This guidance for managing common infections, including upper and lower respiratory, and urinary tract infections was updated in October 2018.
gnolo Serratia marcescens belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae, which is commonly found in water, soil, animals, insects, plants. Although S. marcescens displays relatively low virulence, it causes nosocomial infections and outbreaks in severely immunocompromised or critically ill patients, particularly in settings such as intensive care units (ICUs), especially neonatal units (NICUs). This microorganism gives rise to a wide range of clinical manifestations in newborns: from asymptomatic colonization to keratitis, conjunctivitis, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, surgical wound infections, sepsis, bloodstream in...

DiscussionFor AP in TURP and GL, there is a large gap between usual clinical practice and evidence-based guidelines. If single-dose AP proves non-inferior to prolonged AP, our study findings may help to reduce the duration of AP in daily routine —potentially reducing the risk of emerging resistance and complications related to AP.Trial registrationClinicaltrials.gov,NCT03633643.

Conclusions: Comparable with standard TURP, TURP with preservation of the bladder neck appears to provide a satisfactory clinical outcome in decreasing early postoperative incontinence and lowering the rate of retrograde ejaculation. PMID: 30766635 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: Our results confirm that PUV has a considerable risk for CKD development. Antenatal diagnosis, management of proteinuria and hypertension may modify this progression. But already injured kidneys still have a potential risk. The need for further research to evaluate the impact of any intervention on long term renal outcome is obvious.

Conclusions: Bacterial UTI persists as one of the most common infections affecting all age groups and both genders. As in other countries, E. coli ranks first in Mexico, with 67.28%, and nearly 50% of the strains produce ESBL. PMID: 30768071 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Ertugliflozin was well tolerated and provided clinically meaningful glycemic control and durable reductions in body weight and SBP over 104 weeks. Clinicaltrials.gov identifier NCT01999218. PMID: 30760125 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In conclusion, apart from the unmodifiable factors, avoiding prolonged urinary catheter placement, unnecessary prescriptions, and keeping good nutritional status may help to prevent UTI in home care patients.

Isolates were retrieved for susceptibility testing, hypermucoviscosi...
