Professors of the Argentine Microbiological Association emphasize it and point out that it is due to the abuse of antibiotics
Intraocral infections, largely caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, are no longer just medical devices, warned the Argentine Microbiology Association (AAM), who stated that "they have already come to geriatrics and even home care."
This was one of the arguments of the Argentine Bacteriology, Mycology and Clinical Parasitology (Sadebac), which is part of the recent VIII Congress of AAM, which raises concerns in the scientific community because "the resistance to molecules with conventional antibiotic activity is very high ".
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 700,000 people die from antimicrobial resistance (AMR) every year, which by 2050 will increase to 10 million if no action is taken.
"These health-related infections, also called intrahospital, are closely related to the use of medical devices that we have not previously been," explained biochemist and specialist Jaime Kovensky Pupko.
The expert and coordinator of the Subcommittee on Antibiotics Sadebac stated that "the drug has gone so far, so there are more patients with impaired immune system (transferred, oncologic) exposed to invasive procedures with an inevitable risk of infection."
He also stressed that "one of the most worrying issues is the low level of hand washing of healthcare staff, which is not over 30% in Argentina".
"The biggest problem with not washing hands is the horizontal transfer of bacteria", was agreed with AAM's vice president Adriana Sucar and Sadebac president.
He added that "Doctors, nurses, kineologists, and all health care staff who help a patient who is a resistant bacterium can spread it to the next patient if they do not clean their hands between each other".
Both experts also agreed that it is a "fundamental quality" that includes the number of health-related infections, including in daycare centers, homes for the elderly, and home-based patients.
"Each medical institution must design and implement a monitoring program that includes finding multi-resistant bacterial carriers and applying precautionary measures to prevent horizontal transmission from one patient to another or through the patient's hand." Healthcare staff and the use of objects such as stethoscopes and thermometers, "Kovensky suggested.
DISPOSAL AND MISUSE
The biochemist recalled that antibiotic resistance is linked to "abuse or abuse" of antibiotics. "In 2016," he said, resistance to antimicrobials was a health issue addressed at the United Nations Presidency Summit when Heads of State committed themselves for the first time to adopt a coordinated strategy with a broad scope to address human, animal and agricultural health. "
"Antibiotics must be prescribed by a doctor and the prescription must be submitted to the pharmacy There are studies indicating that non-compliance reaches 80% in Buenos Aires province.This sale without a prescription is mostly responsible for self-care where antibiotic is not necessary because it is a virus , which produces resistant bacteria in an infectious focus or bowel mikrobioteen, who lives in us, "he pointed out.
"We need to take care of the ecology of our own microbial vegetation if we want to keep the resistance to microbial resistance," Kovensky added.
