Database entry is very quick and easy, see the Database Quick Guide for further support.

The anaesthetists' role in perioperative infection control: what is the action plan?

British Journal of Anaesthesia
Year of publication
Hospitalised patients who suffer from healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) experience increased morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs. Enterococcus, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella, Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, and Enterobacter spp. (ESKAPE) are leading causative organisms of infection. Postoperative HAIs affect at least 7% of patients undergoing surgery, as proven by rigorous investigation and falling within the 1.9–8.8% range reported by national stakeholders. Treatment of HAIs has fuelled resistance, making infections more difficult to treat when they develop.
