Procalcitonin is a marker of gram-negative bacteremia
in patients with sepsis.
In addition, our study did not refer to all patients presenting to the ED with bacteremia, but only patients with documented Gram-negative bacteremia
While the qSOFA score at ICU admission, use of MV, and Gram-negative bacteremia
tended to associate with mortality, these associations did not achieve statistical significance (Table 5).
It is the second most common cause of Gram-negative bacteremia
(34) found that CRP levels were significantly higher in subjects with Gram-negative bacteremia
compared with the FUO group, and similar to the subjects with CDIs.
Descriptions of the epidemiology of gram-negative bacteremia
have been limited by care settings, referral bias, small geographic regions, short study duration, or case identification by use of administrative code data (6-10).
In several large reviews of gram-negative bacteremia
, no cases were due to Achromobacter xylosoxidans .
Carbapenem resistant gram-negative bacteremia
in an Indian intensive care unit: a review of the clinical profile and treatment outcome of 50 patients.
Empiric combination therapy using a beta-lactam antibiotic plus an aminoglycoside is no more beneficial than empiric monotherapy using an appropriately broad-spectrum beta-lactam antibiotic alone for children suspected of having gram-negative bacteremia
, according to a report.
Rapid pathogen ID from blood cultures, early initiation of susceptibility tests, and clinical interventions supported by effective communication and interpretation of this vital data have resulted in reduced length of stay, lower mortality, and lower costs for cases of Gram-negative bacteremia
at a major U.S.
(25-27) Gram-negative bacteremia
was used as the gold standard in all the studies.
