  1. Legionellen im Wasser medizinischer Einrichtungen: eine Gefahr für Patienten und Personal?

    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : Legionellae in water of public health facilities. Dangerous for patients and staff?

    Since 1987 warm water samples of public health facilities in Dresden were cultured for Legionellae.

    In 59 of 220 samples and in 15 of 20 facilities Legionella pneumophila was detected.

    By reason of the ubiquitousness of the aerogenic transmissible Legionellae, nosocomial legionellosis can occur at any time.

    In dentists who used Legionella-contaminated dental units we could demonstrate more frequently high antibody titers against Legionellae.

    Measures to eradicate Legionellae from air conditioning systems and hot water supplies are discussed.
