Purpose of review The development of urinary tract infections in critically ill adult patients is associated with considerable morbidity, prolonged hospitalization, and greater healthcare expenditures. We review the occurrence, microbiology, risk factors for acquisition, and outcomes associated with intensive care unit-acquired urinary tract infections. Recent findings Reports from several countries indicate that nosocomial urinary tract infections frequently complicate the course of patients… Expand
Urinary tract colonization and infection in critically ill patients
TLDR
The present study offers data on the epidemiology of UTI in the ICU, the identified risk factors, etiology, diagnosis, impact upon morbidity and mortality, and the measures to prevent its appearance. Expand

TLDR
The present study offers data on the epidemiology of UTI in the ICU, the identified risk factors, etiology, diagnosis, impact upon morbidity and mortality, and the measures to prevent its appearance. Expand
Epidemiologic and Etiologic Evaluation of Acquired Urinary Tract Infections in Cardiac Surgery ICU Patients
TLDR
The results of the present study showed a low prevalence of acquired UTI in the ICU under study and a low rate of resistance to commonly used antibiotics was observed. Expand
Reducing the Incidence of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in the Acute Care Setting Using Evidence-Based Guidelines
TLDR
This chapter will focus on methods that have demonstrated in research and recommended to help prevent CA-UTIs in the acute care setting. Expand
Surveillance of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in 4 intensive care units at Alexandria university hospitals in Egypt.
TLDR
Using the identified risk factors, tailored intervention strategies are now being implemented to reduce the rates of CAUTIs in these 4 ICUs, a significant problem in Alexandria University hospital. Expand
Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in Adult Patients.
TLDR
Various measures, including careful consideration of the indication for catheterization, leaving catheters in place for the shortest possible time, and the training of nursing personnel, can effectively lower the incidence of CA-UTI. Expand
Factors associated with catheter-associated urinary tract infections and the effects of other concomitant nosocomial infections in intensive care units
TLDR
The results showed that the presence of nosocomial infections at another site was an independent risk factor for the acquisition of a CAUTI and that their presence alters risk factors. Expand

TLDR
The high frequency of HAIs and antibiotic resistance rate, suggests that more strict infection control practices along with prescription of antibiotics after antibiotic susceptibility testing should be implemented to limit the emergence of antibiotic resistant organisms. Expand
Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in Adult Patients Preventive Strategies and Treatment Options
U rinary tract infections account for 21.6% of all nosocomial infections in Germany and are thus among the more frequent types of nosocomial infection, along with lower respiratory infections (24%),Expand
Etiology and risk factors of catheter associated urinary tract infections in ICU patients
TLDR
F Females, diabetics, patients on mechanical ventilation and with prolonged catheterization are independent risk factors for CAUTI, and majorities of pathogens were bacterial in origin and were resistant to multiple drugs. Expand

Intensive care unit-acquired urinary tract infections in a regional critical care system
TLDR
Development of an ICU-acquired UTI is common in critically ill patients and is a marker of increased morbidity associated with critical illness, but it is not a significant attributable cause of mortality. Expand
Catheter-associated urinary tract infections in intensive care units.
TLDR
The level of evidence provided in this field is weak, and underlines the need for randomized studies to improve management of patients. Expand
Risk factors of nosocomial catheter-associated urinary tract infection in a polyvalent intensive care unit
TLDR
To decrease the rate of catheter-associated bacteriuria in polyvalent ICU patients, removal of the bladder catheter must be performed as soon as possible. Expand
Incidence and risk factors for acquiring nosocomial urinary tract infection in the critically ill.
TLDR
No differences in admitting vital signs, routine blood tests, APACHE II and TISS scores, or overall hospital mortality rate were observed among patients who developed an ICU-acquired UTI as compared with those who did not. Expand
Urinary tract infections in the critically ill patient with a urinary catheter.
TLDR
Urosepsis was more likely to occur in patients over 60 years of age, patients with extended length of stay in the intensive care unit or in the hospital in general, and patients with an extended duration of urinary catheterization. Expand
Biofilms and catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
TLDR
Indwelling urethral catheterization should be avoided or at least limited whenever possible, and anti-infective catheters in patients at high-risk for infection, and systemic antibiotics in select patients are recommended. Expand
Nosocomial infections in medical-surgical intensive care units in Argentina: attributable mortality and length of stay.
TLDR
High rates of nosocomial infections in ICUs in Argentina are found, associated with a considerable attributable mortality and excess length of hospital stay. Expand
Hospital-acquired bacteremic urinary tract infection: epidemiology and outcome.
TLDR
Extrapolation of these data suggests that 3,520 deaths in the United States each year are directly caused by hospital-acquired bacteremic urinary tract infection but that these deaths may be limited virtually to high risk patients with poor prognoses from underlying diseases. Expand

TLDR
ICU-acquired infection is common and often associated with microbiological isolates of resistant organisms, and the potential effects on outcome emphasize the importance of specific measures for infection control in critically ill patients. Expand
Nosocomial infections in medical intensive care units in the United States. National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance System.
TLDR
The distribution of sites of infection in medical ICUs differed from that previously reported in NNIS ICU surveillance studies, largely as a result of anticipated low rates of surgical site infections. Expand
