Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: In Brazil, the multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria has maintained high incidence and prevalence, increased hospital costs, hindered the recovery of patients, and has proved difficult to control, as high mortality in affected patients and severity of infection reaching 50% of death for those infected. Are gram-negative non-fermenting glucose multiresistant antimicrobial available? Parameters were identified to prevent and control these infections in the perioperative period through an integrative literature review. Its ability to infect refers to biofilms on biotic surfaces (epithelial cells) and abiotic (materials), increasing the survival rate to over five days on dry surfaces. The cross transmission to patients is often the direct and indirect contact, possibly by air. The main sites of infection by A. baumannii are the respiratory tract, genitourinary tract, the bloodstream, and wounds. It is the nursing protocol to maintain tight control and contact precautions, with maintenance procedures frequently updated and evaluated for disinfection and sterilization of equipment used in invasive procedures. A. baumannii has the propensity to develop resistance quickly related to bacterial production of enzymes, especially beta-lactamases, which confer resistance to cephalosporins and penicillins. Its high resistance to antimicrobial therapy is difficult to control in treatment of infection in patients undergoing invasive medical procedures. It is prudent and judicious to prescribe antibiotics and maintain excellence in surgical techniques, while monitoring responses to medications.
