Brotes por microorganismos resistentes relacionados con el turismo médico

Ante el incremento de brotes causados por microorganismos resistentes relacionados con el turismo médico, la Organización Panamericana de la Salud / Organización Mundial de la Salud (OPS/OMS) orienta a los Estados Miembros a fortalecer la capacidad de detección y manejo de infecciones ocasionadas por microorganismos resistentes en pacientes que viajaron para ser atendidos en un país diferente del que residen.

Al mismo tiempo, la OPS/OMS les urge a implementar medidas preventivas para reducir las infecciones asociadas con la atención de salud en todos los niveles del sistema de salud.

Age-Dependent Increase in Incidence of Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia, Denmark 2008-2015

Emerging Infectious Diseases May 2019 V.15 N.5

Age-Dependent Increase in Incidence of Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia, Denmark, 2008–2015

Thorlacius-Ussing et al.

Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB) is a major cause of illness and death worldwide.

We analyzed temporal trends of SAB incidence and death in Denmark during 2008–2015. SAB incidence increased 48%, from 20.76 to 30.37 per 100,000 person-years, during this period (p<0.001).

The largest change in incidence was observed for persons >80 years of age: a 90% increase in the SAB rate (p<0.001).

After adjusting for demographic changes, annual rates increased 4.0% (95% CI 3.0–5.0) for persons <80 years of age, 8.4% (95% CI 7.0–11.0) for persons 80–89 years of age, and 13.0% (95% CI 9.0–17.5) for persons >90 years of age.

The 30-day case-fatality rate remained stable at 24%; crude population death rates increased by 53% during 2008–2015 (p<0.001).

Specific causes and mechanisms for this rapid increase in SAB incidence among the elderly population remain to be clarified.
