Because the greatest risk factor for development of CAUTI is duration of catheterization, ICU patients are at particular risk because they are typically catheterized
for extended periods (Jansen et al.
A total of 9,845 culture positive urine samples (7,095 females, 2,750 males; 8,938 clean catch, 907 catheterized
specimens) collected over a period of twelve months from all patients seen at Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA, were included in this retrospective study.
So I settled in and they started the IV drip, shaved me and catheterized
me (this is horrible).
Preeclampsia was defined as blood pressure > 140/90 mmHg and at least 1+ proteinuria on a catheterized
In addition the Cx was selectively catheterized
near the ostium of RCA (Fig.
Colonization was defined as a microorganism, usually detected by screening, at a host site (normally nonsterile, although the urine of a catheterized

Gross exam revealed no nodes on the artery to indicate where it had been catheterized
Their son's injuries were severe: He fractured his pelvis, required several surgeries, and still has to be catheterized
three to four times a day.
He does not get catheterized
during the day but we are ready to start him on a regimen so that we can hopefully get him out of diapers.
It was also clear that the variables available in the administrative data to control for differences between groups that were and were not catheterized
could not adequately control for differences in their underlying degree of sickness.
The second, a catheterized
specimen, was collected at the time of cystoscopy.
The physician was put into a dinghy and motored over to the other boat, where he catheterized
the ailing man and otherwise stabilized him.
patient was compared with a patient with the same illness and other related factors who was not catheterized
Our primary objective was to estimate the probability that a beneficiary would receive cardiac catheterization during the 90-day episode, and, conditional on having been catheterized
, the probability that a beneficiary would undergo a coronary revascularization procedure (either PTCA or bypass surgery).
Thus enlightened, I was catheterized
(a painless procedure), hooked to the belt-carried pump loaded with a week's supply of 2CdA, and sent on my way.
