Traduction en anglais : Nosocomial infections : new pathogens, incidence, prevention.
Nosocomial infection is one of the major health problems confronting clinicians in intensive care units.
Incidence has been estimated to vary from 5 to 10%, leading to death in one of every 5000 persons hospitalized.
This situation is not however static since hospital epidemics and nosocomial infections evolve as a consequence of advances in antibiotic drug therapy and surgical and intensive care techniques.
Microbial investigations themselves are of major importance as the collection of epidemiological data and its communication to hospital partners affects their approach to patient management.
