135 Possible Causes for Pseudomonas in the Sputum

  • Sinusitis

    Experimental antibiotic therapy should always consider the array of CF specific pathogens, especially Pseudomonas spp.[med.stanford.edu] Nasal swabs and transantral aspirations can give specific information about sinus infections. 4 Sputum samples are also quite useful, and it is typical that patients are infected[web.stanford.edu] Sputum samples are also quite useful, and it is typical that patients are infected with the same organism throughout the respiratory tract.[med.stanford.edu]

  • Pseudomonas Infection

    Diagnosis is made using repeat sputum samples, but in contrast to some other diseases in which Pseudomonas is common, sputum sampling is not done on a routine basis in bronchiectasis[bronchiectasisnewstoday.com] MICs of Pseudomonas species isolated from the sputum at the start of the trial were in the range 0.25-4 mg/l.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Of the patients with pseudomonas in the initial sputum specimen in whom sputum was cultured after treatment, six (26%) of 23 receiving gentamicin and carbenicillin and seven[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

    Blood culture results from the day of hospital presentation grew Pseudomonas aeruginosa Sputum sample and pleural fluid grew P. aeruginosa and were negative for acid-fast[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical improvement in cystic fibrosis following antibiotics is often associated with only a small decrease in the viable count of pseudomonas in the sputum or no change[thorax.bmj.com] Chest 128 : 912 – 919 . ( 1988 ) Measurement of Pseudomonas aeruginosa phenazine pigments in sputum and assessment of their contribution to sputum sol toxicity for respiratory[doi.org]

  • Pseudomonas Pneumonia

    Abstract A previously healthy man developed fulminating pneumonia and bacteraemia due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, isolating Pseudomonas from tracheal secretions and sputum may reveal airway colonization.[symptoma.com] He is stable but still has copious purulent sputum production and his sputum samples remain positive for Pseudomonas.[pulmonaryroundtable.blogspot.com]

  • Pseudomonas

    Clinical improvement in cystic fibrosis following antibiotics is often associated with only a small decrease in the viable count of pseudomonas in the sputum or no change[thorax.bmj.com] Abstract Pyocyanin (PCN) is a blue redox-active secondary metabolite that is produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diagnosing Pseudomonas After a doctor or nurse gets a throat or sputum culture from a person with CF, the laboratory tests the culture in a specific way to help find any Pseudomonas[cff.org]

  • Moraxella Catarrhalis

    12 (5.7%), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa was isolated from 10 sputum samples (4.8%).[atsjournals.org] Concomitant Pathogens Of the 210 clinic visits with positive sputum cultures for M. catarrhalis , H. influenzae was isolated from 56 (26.7%), S. pneumoniae was isolated from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sputum culture grew M. catarrhalis as well as Pseudomonas aeruginosa ; both were sensitive to imipenem, which was started immediately.[dovepress.com]

  • Atelectasis

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa was isolated from the sputum of the patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gram-Negative Pneumonia

    One patient had Enterobacter cloacae (sputum, blood), 1 patient had Klebseilla pneumoniae (sputum, pleural fluid), 2 patients had Pseudomonas aeruginosa and E. cloacae (sputum[aspergillus.org.uk] Sputum cultures in four patients grew Pseudomonas aeruginosa and, in the fifth, Enterobacter cloacae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Tobramycin, nebulized at 600 mg three times daily, significantly improved clinical and pulmonary functions and reduced the density of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the sputum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
