MRSA is an acronym for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
Staphylococcus aureus is a very common fungus and adheres well to our hair, skin, nasal mucosa, mouth, and wounds.
However, S. aureus is basically an attenuated bacterium, so if our resistance is strong, it will not be particularly severe.
MRSA is a fellow of the Staphylococcus aureus, nature is am with Staphylococcus aureus, has a resistance gene, antibiotics (drugs that kill the bacteria) is making it difficult effectiveness.
Therefore, it does not proceed to treatment think, we often only resistance force of the patient is to rely on. When it gets worse, there are many cases of death due to sepsis, meningitis, endocarditis and osteomyelitis.
severe easy to state
- If the resistance drops enough to require a clean room
After major surgery
- In case of severe burns
If you are putting a long period of time the catheter into a blood vessel
In such cases, MRSA infections are very susceptible to a variety of illnesses and are difficult to treat, so there is a great risk of MRSA. However, it is unlikely that actual harm will occur because of MRSA, as few people living in households and facilities are more susceptible to severe conditions.
Preservatives and Onset
Detection of bacteria, does not always those infections caused by the bacteria.
MRSA is a very common organism, and some people use it at home or in the facility with MRSA attached to their nose.
It is said to have “bacteria carrying” a condition in which MRSA is attached but no disease has occurred.
Even if you carry MRSA, if you are a healthy person, you will be eradicated by your own resistance in a few days, but if you get older you may continue to “bacteria carrying” as it is.
However, people who can spend at home or in facilities do not become seriously ill and do not do any harm even if they are “bacteria carrying”.
In other words, even if you “bacteria carrying” MRSA, there is no concern and no harm to people around you.
On the other hand, a patient who has “onset” MRSA is a patient who has clinically infected infection symptoms such as cough, sneezing, fever, or diarrhea as a result of infection. The typical MRSA infections, meningitis, pneumonia, peritonitis, enteritis, sepsis and so on.
Customers with MRSA and flooded floors become a source of contamination, and by touching them, smoking them into the air, transferring them to people through their hands, and spreading them one after another.
