Given the great variability in the definitions used to diagnose Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), this review will aid in providing an overview of the joint clinical evidence between the different bladder management methods with regard to UTI risk.
At first glance, assisted urine voiding through catheterisation may seem like an unnatural thing. If, however, the evidence surrounding intermittent catheterisation (a more technical name for it) is studied, it becomes clear that this is indeed something useful. New research reveals that intermittent catheterisation is a central part of many treatment regimens. In this month’s Science Alert we look into some of them.
New success stories are being published every month on how to reduce the burden of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI).
The battle against urinary tract infections (UTIs) is on. UTIs are a heavy burden for many: the healthcare system, society and, not least, the individual.
Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is the most common healthcare-associated infection and it has major cost implications for health services. It is a highly researched field with several new studies published every month covering prevention strategies and interventions.
