Los procedimientos que inciden en la via aerea superior como broncoscopia e intubacion asi como manipulacion del tracto genitourinario (cateterizacion uretral, endoscopia, cistoscopia) tambien se asocian a EI, en ellos la participacion de bacilos Gram negativos y el grupo de agentes denominados HACEK, (Haemophilus spp., Actinobacillus, Cardiobacterium, Eikenella y Kingella), tienen tasas de 4.8%.
Since the database for the group of organisms known as HACEK (Haemophilus sp., Aggregatibacter sp., Cardiobacterium sp., Eikenella sp., and Kingella sp.) was limited, her goal was to test a number of those organisms and upload the spectra into a database labeled as CCHMC Organisms.
