Burkholderia in Healthcare Environments Exposed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network produces another educational video about environmental dangers due to exposure to microbial pathogens and environmental hazards.
Phoenix, AZ, November 14th, 2011 -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health. The latest educational video discusses the threat to human health due to Burkholderia cepacia in healthcare environments.
Burkholderia cepacia is the name of a group or “complex” of bacteria that can be found in soil and water and survive for extended periods of time in moist environments. Also known as BCC or B. cepacia, the bacteria are often resistant to common antibiotics.
“Burkholderia cepacia poses little medical risk to most healthy people,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “However, people who have certain health problems like weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis, may be more susceptible to infections from Burkholderia cepacia. We hope this new online video helps to educate people about these dangerous bacteria and ways people can protect their health.”
