Clinical practice guidelines by the infectious diseases society of america for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in adults and children.
TLDR
These guidelines discuss the management of a variety of clinical syndromes associated with MRSA disease, including skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI), bacteremia and endocarditis, pneumonia, bone and joint infections, and central nervous system infections. Expand
An intervention to decrease catheter-related bloodstream infections in the ICU.
TLDR
An evidence-based intervention resulted in a large and sustained reduction (up to 66%) in rates of catheter-related bloodstream infection that was maintained throughout the 18-month study period. Expand
Clinical practice guidelines by the infectious diseases society of america for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in adults and children: executive summary.
TLDR
These guidelines discuss the management of a variety of clinical syndromes associated with MRSA disease, including skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI), bacteremia and endocarditis, pneumonia, bone and joint infections, and central nervous system infections. Expand
Comparison of mortality associated with methicillin-resistant and methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis was performed to summarize the impact of methicillin-resistance on mortality in Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia and explored the reasons for heterogeneity by means of subgroup analyses. Expand
Implementing an Antibiotic Stewardship Program: Guidelines by the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
TLDR
These recommendations address the best approaches for antibiotic stewardship programs to influence the optimal use of antibiotics. Expand
Adverse clinical and economic outcomes attributable to methicillin resistance among patients with Staphylococcus aureus surgical site infection.
TLDR
Methicillin resistance is independently associated with increased mortality and hospital charges among patients with S. aureus SSI and has a greater duration of hospitalization after infection. Expand
Daptomycin versus standard therapy for bacteremia and endocarditis caused by Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
Daptomycin (6 mg per kilogram daily) is not inferior to standard therapy for S. aureus bacteremia and right-sided endocarditis and met prespecified criteria for the noninferiority of daptomecin. Expand
The Impact of Methicillin Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia on Patient Outcomes: Mortality, Length of Stay, and Hospital Charges
TLDR
Evaluating the impact of methicillin resistance in S. aureus bacteremia in patients admitted to the hospital between July 1, 1997, and June 1, 2000 found it was associated with significant increases in length of hospitalization and hospital charges. Expand

There is an association between the development of antimicrobial resistance in Staphylococcus aureus, enterococci, and gram-negative bacilli and increases in mortality, morbidity, length ofExpand
Sustaining reductions in catheter related bloodstream infections in Michigan intensive care units: observational study
TLDR
The reduced rates of catheter related bloodstream infection achieved in the initial 18 month post-implementation period were sustained for an additional 18 months as participating intensive care units integrated the intervention into practice. Expand
