Flashcards in 10 Deck (19):
1

describe the CDC classification of surgical infections

SSI = one that occurs anywhere within operative field after surgery1. incisional (superficial vs deep)2. organ/space

2

Wound/operative procedure classification guidelines by the national research council

cleanclean-contaminatedcontaminateddirty

3

percentage of clean elective ortho procedures that get infected

15%(generally higher than reported for a clean wound---2-4.8%)

4

risk factor for SSI and clipping surgical site

clip immediately prior to procedureanimals clipped within 4 hours of induction had an equally significant risk for SSI as those clipped >4 hr prior to inductioncolonizing "nicks"

5

risk factor for SSI and duration of sx

risk of SSI approximately doubles for every 60 minutes of surgery timesuppression of cell mediated immunity, exposure incr, more tissue handling

6

risk factor for SSI and duration of ax

30% increase in risk SSI for every 60 min of axpropofol use (lipid base)

7

risk factor for SSI and endocrinopathies

DM has not been incr risk for SSIDM has been incr risk for UTI and dermatologic dzSSI risk with Cushings, hypoT

8

risk factor for SSI and # people in OR

for ea additional person in OR, risk of SSI increases as much as 30%(1.3 x)

9

risk factor for SSI and sex/neuter status

intact male cats/dogs incr risk SSI

10

other misc. risk factors for SSI

immunosuppressive drugs (GCC, chemo)infxn elsewhere in bodyperiop hypotension, hypothermiapoor BCSsuture typeblood lossASA statushospital stay

11

range of reported SSI in veterinary patients

clean 2-4.8%clean contaminated 3.5-5.0%contaminated 4.6-12%dirty 6.7-18.1%

12

recommendations for period Ab prophylactic use

1. when risk of infxn is high (clean-contamin, contaminated, dirty)2. SSI would have disastrous consequences

13

Ab of choice for clean contaminated procedures of the skin and/or GI tract

cefazolincovers gm + and gm -- Enterococciminimal side effectscheap

14

timing of Ab administration

Ab should be in the tissue operative site at effective concentrations at start of surgeryconcentrations should be maintained. recommend at induction or within 1 hr of surgical incision and repeated every 2 hours (per TJ)

15

disadvantage of using perioperative Ab in cases where no significant benefit occurs

may contribute to colonization with resistant bacterial species and nosocomial infection

16

concentration dependent drugs and Cmax

enrofloxacin (quinolones), metronidazole, amphotericin, aminoglycosidesgoal Cmax > or = 10 MIC

17

time dependent drugs and MIC

beta lactams, clindamycin, macrolides, azoles, and vancomycingoal [drug} at or above MIC > or = 50% dosing interval

18

equation of infection risk

infection risk = contamination x virulence / host resistance

19

surgical glove punctures occur how often? and how many go unnoticed?

surgical glove perforations occur in 35% after 2 hours of surgery80% go unnoticed
