Pseudomonas aeruginosa Infections Exposed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network produces another educational video about environmental dangers due to exposure to microbial pathogens and other hazards.
Phoenix, AZ, December 17th, 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 the presence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in healthcare and community environments.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram-negative, aerobic, rod shaped bacteria. It is a common microorganism that can cause disease in animals, including humans. The symptoms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections are generalized inflammation and sepsis. It is an opportunistic, nosocomial pathogen of immune-compromised individuals.
“Since it thrives on many types of surfaces, this type of bacteria has been known to be found on and in medical equipment, including catheters,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “It can cause cross-infections in hospitals and clinics and post surgical infections. According to some reports, as many as one in ten hospital-acquired infections (HAI) are due to this type of bacteria. We hope this new online video helps to educate people about this microbial pathogen and ways people can protect their health.”
