Bacteriology of tracheal aspirates in intubated newborn

I BrookS M Finegold


The bacteriology of tracheal aspirates from 28 intubated newborn babies was studied. There was no correlation between such colonization and the respiratory distress syndrome. Endotracheal suction of intubated infants did provide a reliable specimen source for determining the etiology of perinatal pneumonia. Presence of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in the aspirate correlated well with infection. Anaerobic bacteria were found to play a role in three of the five cases of pneumonia.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
