Bacterial Contamination of blood componentsClinical Microbiology Reviews, 2005Co-Authors: Mark E BrecherAbstract:
Blood for transfusion is a potential source of infection by a variety of known and unknown transmissible agents. Over the last 20 years, astounding reductions in the risk of viral infection via allogeneic blood have been achieved. As a result of this success, Bacterial Contamination of blood products has emerged as the greatest residual source of transfusion-transmitted disease. This paper summarizes the current status of detection, prevention, and elimination of bacteria in blood products for transfusion.
Bacterial Contamination of blood products: Factors, options, and insightsJournal of Clinical Apheresis, 2001Co-Authors: N.d. Depcik‐smith, Mark E BrecherAbstract:
Transfusion of Bacterially contaminated blood products remains an overlooked problem. However, the risk of receiving a Bacterially contaminated unit is greater than the combined risk of HIV-1/2, HCV, HBV, and HTLV I/II [American Association of Blood Banks Bulletin, no. 294, 1996]. Topics covered in this article include: the current incidence, clinical presentation and outcome, effective methods of detection, and ways to reduce Bacterial Contamination of blood products. There is no one existing strategy that can completely eliminate the risk of Bacterial Contamination. It is inevitable that partial solutions or combinations of methods will be implemented in the near future. J. Clin. Apheresis 16:192–201, 2001.© 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Bacterial Contamination of nylon corneal sutures.Eye (London England), 1995Co-Authors: C.j. Heaven, C R N Davison, P M CockcroftAbstract:
We report the findings of a prospective study into the Bacterial Contamination of monofilament nylon sutures removed from corneal wounds following cataract surgery. Sutures were classified as tight, loose or broken at the time of removal. Loose and broken sutures showed significantly more Bacterial Contamination than tight sutures (p < 0.001, chi squared). Positive cultures were obtained from 2 (6.2%) of 32 tight sutures, 14 (38.9%) of 36 loose sutures and 11 (37.9%) of 29 broken sutures. Staphylococcus epidermidis was the most commonly isolated organism (isolated in pure growth from 22 (81.5%) of 27 positive cultures). These findings may explain the occasional association of biodegraded corneal monofilament nylon sutures and suppurative keratitis and highlight the potential risk of seeding a suture track infection at the time of suture removal. They also emphasise the need for prophylactic topical antibiotic when removing biodegraded sutures.

Survey of Bacterial Contamination of medical oxygen humidifying containers and control measuresChina Modern Doctor, 2012Co-Authors: Lin ChuyingAbstract:
Objective To analyze Bacterial Contamination of medical oxygen humidifier bottles,and evaluate control measures.Methods All 256 three states of the oxygen humidifier bottles were randomLy selected,figured out pollution detection rate,and analysised of Bacterial distribution.According to the analysis,implement of control measures and to review the rate of Bacterial Contamination.Results The Contamination rate was 44.52%,the rate of the three groups were significantly different(P 0.01),the number of colonies detected between the three groups was significantly different(P 0.01).It was mainly Gram-negative Bacterial Contamination in three groups,the distribution of Bacterial Contamination between three types was significant different(P 0.05).The Bacterial Contamination rate in reexamination was 27.67%,which was significantly different(P 0.05) with the previous result.Conclusion Medical oxygen humidifier bottles had a higher rate of Bacterial Contamination,which mainly was Gram-negative bacteria.The rate can be effective reduce by strengthening of disinfection,aseptic technique,the timely replaceing equipment.
