Cumulative risk of developing VAP with the duration of ...

Need for a Global Approach Global burden: HAIs lead to excess morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs worldwide Proliferation of invasive healthcare internationally without commensurate infection prevention infrastructure

Antimicrobial resistance: everyones problem Global Burden Healthcare-associated infection (HAI) in the United States (2002) 1/20 patients 1.7 million HAIs 99,000 deaths

Developing countries Limited data from low income countries Estimated prevalence: at least three times greater than United States Klevens et al Public Health Reports 2007. Allegranzi et al Lancet 2011. Why might there be more HAIs in middle- and low-income

countries? Less infection prevention and control infrastructure Training lacking in general infection control Improper use of equipment (e.g., reuse of single-use equipment) Insufficient reprocessing Less surveillance, awareness, and targeted prevention efforts

Proliferation of invasive medical care across the globe Large dialysis organizations expanding across boarders Increase in medical tourism Antimicrobial Resistance Studies suggest that approximately of antimicrobial use in US healthcare settings is inappropriate

Rising resistance leads to decreasing treatment options and increasing cost Inappropriate prescribing contributor to C. difficile epidemic Klebsiella Pneumoniae Carbapenemase

KPC confers resistance to all b-lactams including extended-spectrum cephalosporins and carbapenems Is the predominant mechanisms of carbapenem resistance in Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) in the US. Mortality-associated with Resistance OR 3.71 (1.97-7.01) OR 4.5 (2.16-9.35)

Patel et al. Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol 2008;29:1099-1106 Multidrug Resistant Organism (MRO) Multidrug resistant organisms of concern at PSMH are Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin Resistant Entercoccus (VRE) and Clostridium Difficile (C. Dif) MROs are bacteria that have become resistant to many of the antibiotics used to treat infections caused by them. 7

Clostridium Difficile Patients admitted with diarrhea or develop diarrhea after admission are placed in Contact Isolation until C. dif is ruled out and Infection Control Department discontinues isolation. Positive C.dif patients are to be in Contact Isolation until discharge Never use Alcohol foam or gel for hand hygiene (Alcohol foam and gels do not kill C. diff spores) Always wash hands with soap and water (use friction when washing hands with soap and water to rinse spores down the drain).

Surgical Site Infection Others Cumulative risk of developing VAP with the duration of mechanical ventilation. Although length of time with an endotracheal tube in place increases the risk of nosocomial pneumonia, the greatest risk is during the first 2 weeks of intubation.

Nearly all intubated children will have colonization of their endotracheal tube with hospital-acquired organisms by a mean of 5 days. The most common organisms isolated in the developing countries Enterobacteriaceae spp. (26%) Pseudomonas aeruginosa (26%), with 60% resistant to fluoroquinolones S. aureus (22%), with 84% methicillin resistant Acinetobacter spp. (20%)

The bacterial organisms identified most often are gram-negative bacilli, with P. aeruginosa being the most common species identified in PICUs. The second most common bacterial etiology of pediatric nosocomial pneumonia is the gram-positive organisms. The frequently isolated bacteria are S. aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci. S. epidermidis nosocomial pneumonia is a common cause in the NICU population and is typically the result of hematogenous spread. Anaerobic nosocomial pneumonia is rare in the pediatric population but accounts for 23% of

nosocomial pneumonias in adults. Ventilator associated pneumonia Ventilator-associated pneumonia remain important causes of morbidity and mortality despite advances in antibiotics therapy, better supportive care modalities, and use of a wide-range of preventive measures

Ventilator associated pneumonia The exact incidence of VAP is 6 to 20 fold greater than in Non-Ventilated patients. VAP is associated with a higher crude mortality than other hospital-acquired infections (Level II). How does the lung get infected ? Sources of pathogens for VAP include The environment (air, water, equipment,), and Transfer of microorganisms between the patient and

staff or other patients (Level II) A number of host- and treatment-related factors, Severity of the patients underlying disease, Prior surgery, Exposure to antibiotics Exposure to invasive respiratory devices and equipment. (Level II). How does the lung get infected ? Aspiration of oropharyngeal pathogens, or

leakage of secretions around the endotracheal tube are the primary routes of bacterial entry into the lower respiratory tract (Level II) How does the lung get infected ? Hematogenous spread from infected intravenous Catheters. Bacterial translocation from the gastrointestinal tract lumen are uncommon pathogenic mechanisms

(Level II) How does the lung get infected ? Infected bio-film in the endotracheal tube, with subsequent embolization to distal airways, may be important in the pathogenesis of VAP (Level III) The sinuses may be potential reservoirs of nosocomial pathogens but their contribution is controversial, (Level II) Things that DO NOT prevent VAP

Chest physiotherapy Early tracheostomy. Change of ventilatory circuits Change of HME filters In line suctioning Prophylactic antibiotics

Risk factors for Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP) Patient Age Burns Coma Lung disease

Immunosuppression Malnutrition Blunt trauma Devices Invasive ventilation Duration of invasive ventilation Reintubation Medication Prior antiobiotic

treatment Sedation VAP Prevention 1. Hand hygiene before and after patient contact, preferably using alcohol-based handrubbing 2. Avoid endotracheal intubation if possible 3. Use of oral, rather than nasal, endotracheal tubes 4. Minimize the duration of mechanical ventilation 5. Promote tracheostomy when ventilation is needed for a longer term 6. Glove and gown use for endotracheal tube manip

VAP Prevention (cont) 7. Avoid non-essential tracheal suction 8. Oral hygiene with chlorhexidine 9. Backrest elevation 30-45o 10. Maintain tracheal tube cuff pressures (>20) to prevent regurgitation from the stomach 11. Avoid gastric overdistension 12. Promote enteral feeding 13. Careful blood sugar control in patients with diabetes Is there a role for oral antiseptics ?

Oral chlorhexidine application reduces VAP in one study but not for general use I ATS Guidelines 2005 Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) Urinary Catheter Associated Infections are defined as an infection occurring 48 hours after insertion of a urinary catheter, signs and

symptoms of infection (fever, pain, frequency, urgency, increased white count, etc.) and a positive urine culture of 100,000CFU/ml with no more than 2 species of bacteria. 31 Prevention of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CA-UTI) Two main principles Avoid unnecessary catheterization Limit the duration of catheterization

Indications for the use of indwelling urethral catheters Indications Perioperative use for selected surgical procedures Urine output monitoring in critically ill patients Management of acute urinary retention and urinary obstruction

Assistance in pressure ulcer healing for incontinent residents As an exception, at patient request to improve comfort Urinary incontinence is not an accepted indication for urinary catheterization 21 to 50 percent of urinary catheters not indicated Lo et al. (2008) Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol Suppl 1:S41-50 What you should not do to prevent CAUTI Do not use (avoid) catheter irrigation (A-I) Do not use systemic antimicrobials routinely as prophylaxis (A-II) Do not change catheters routinely (A-III)

skin Multimodal intervention strategies to reduce catheter-associated bloodstream infections: - Hand hygiene - Maximal sterile barrier precaution at insertion - Skin antisepsis with alcohol-based chlorhexidinecontaining products - Subclavian access as the preferred insertion site - Daily review of line necessity - Standardized catheter care using a non-touch technique - Respecting the recommendations for dressing change Eggimann P. Lancet 2000; 35: 290 Pronovost P. N Engl J Med 2006; 355: 26

Zingg W. Crit Care Med 2009; 37: 2167 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Good general ward hygiene: - No overcrowding - Good ventilation - Regular removal of dust - Wound dressing early in day - Disposable equipment HAND WASHING most important Before and after patient contact before invasive procedures

Many Personnel Dont Realize When They Have Germs on Their Hands Healthcare workers can get 100s to 1000s of bacteria on their hands by doing simple tasks like: pulling patients up in bed

taking a blood pressure or pulse touching a patients hand rolling patients over in bed touching the patients gown or bed sheets touching equipment like bedside rails, overbed tables, IV pumps Casewell MW et al. Br Med J 1977;2:1315 Ojajarvi J J Hyg 1980;85:193 Why Dont Staff Wash their Hands (Compliance estimated at less than 50%)

Why Not? Skin irritation Inaccessible hand washing facilities Wearing gloves Too busy Lack of appropriate staff

Being a physician (Improving Compliance with Hand Hygiene in Hospitals Didier Pittet. Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology. Vol. 21 No. 6 Page 381) Why Not? Working in high-risk areas Lack of hand hygiene promotion

Lack of role model Lack of institutional priority Lack of sanction of non-compliers Successful Promotion Education Routine observation & feedback Engineering controls Location of hand basins Possible, easy & convenient Alcohol-based hand rubs available Patient education (Improving Compliance with Hand Hygiene in Hospitals. Didier Pittet. Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology. Vol. 21 No. 6 Page

381) Hand hygiene is the simplest, most effective measure for preventing hospital-acquired infections. Any Questions??? Thank you for not asking!!!
