Flashcards in The Mess That Is Micro II - Grab Bag Deck (13)
Nagging pests must breathe
Nocardia, pseudomonas, mycobacterium TB.
Reactivation of mycobacterium TB after immune compromise or TNF-alpha inhibitor use has a prediliction for the apices of the lung which has the highest po2.
Actors back in the closet can't breathe.
Actinomyces, bacteroides, clostridium.
These bacteria lack catalase and / or superoxide dismutase and are sensitive to oxidative damage.
Generally foul-smelling and are difficult to culture.
Produce gas in tissue (co2 and h2)
Aminoglycosides are ineffective against anaerobes because the antibiotics require o2 to enter into bacterial cell
Which antibiotics require oxygen to enter into the bacterial cell?
Obligate intracellular bateria
My cells are RiCh in bacteria
Nice salmon bring my french legion your list
Neisseria, salmonella, brucella, mycobacterium, francisella, legionella, yersinia pestis, listeria
Clumsy Sam collapsed on his SHIN B-Side the capsule
Shin - Strep pneumo, H flu B, Neisseria meningitidis
Group B strep
Encapsulated bacteria are opsonized, then cleared by the spleen. Asplenics have decreased opsonizing ability and are at risk for severe infections. Give s pneumo, h flu, and n meningitidis vaccines.
Catalase positive organisms?
The cat aspirated pseudofed and listerine but survived to eat candy and other stuff
Catalase degrades H2O2 before it can be converted to microbicidal products by the enzyme myeloperoxidase. People with chronic granulomatous disease (NADPH oxidase deficiency) have recurrent infections with catalase positive organisms.
Encapsulated bacterial vaccines
PCV - prevnar - pneumococcal conjugate vaccine
PPSV - no conjugate protein
H flu B - conjugate vaccine
Meningococcal vaccine - conjugate vaccine
Urease positive bugs
The prostitute noticed cryptic piles of skin, urine, sap at the club
Pigment that actinomyces israelii produces
Israel has yellow sand - yellow
