CHEST 2011: Embargoed studies highlight new lung health research

to the SCI who required the placement of a central venous catheter (CVC) between 2007 and 2010. Catheter-related infections were recorded along with the number of CVC line days on each SCI unit and the CRBSI rates during this time. The CRBSI rate at the SCI was reduced from 4.38 infections per 1,000 line days in 2007 to 0.32 infections per 1,000 line days during 2010. This CRBSI rate demonstrated a statistically significant decrease and confirmed that the implementation of evidence-based practice guidelines in the care of CVCs may reduce CRBSI rates, especially when the components are bundled and executed simultaneously.

Hospitalizations for Stomach Bacterial Infection Growing at Epidemic Rates
(#1117461, Tuesday, October 25, 3:00 PM Eastern)

A recent study by researchers from the University of Massachusetts; Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri; and Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, emphasizes the increasing frequency and severity of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), a stomach infection caused by bacteria. In the United States, age-adjusted CDI hospital fatalities nearly doubled between 2000 and 2005. From 2000 to 2008, the total number of adults discharged with CDI increased from 134,361 to 340,352, equaling an approximate increase of 19.2% per year. Overall, the US incidence of CDI among adults rose from 4.47 in 2000 to 10.16 in 2008, per 1,000 adult hospitalizations. In proportion to all CDI hospitalizations, this diagnosis rose from 23.4% in 2000 to 32.6% in 2008, and associated death rates rose from 3.4% in 2000 to 4.1% in 2008. The growth of CDI hospitalizations continues to rise in this country, and their growth far outpaces the rate of general hospitalizations. Increased focus needs to be spent on prevention.
