Scientists Detect Quick Antibiotics to Treat BloodBorne Infections in New Diagnosing Systems

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently granted approval for a new testing system that can more quickly identify the microbe causing a bloodstream infection once a blood culture is positive. It is the first testing system that can rapidly determine which antibiotics are most effective for the given bacteria or yeast, according to the FDA. Bacterial or yeast blood infections can occur in a patient of any age, but the infections are especially serious in infants, older adults and in people who have a weakened immune system. And without rapid treatment, bloodstream infections—known as bacteremia—can lead to septic shock and death. Currently, when healthcare practitioners suspect a bloodstream infection, they begin treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics that will work against the most common pathogens.

Understanding Acid-Base Disorders

These are referred to as Acidosis and Alkalosis. Acidosis and alkalosis describe the abnormal conditions that result from an imbalance in the pH of the blood caused by an excess of acid or alkali (base). This imbalance is typically caused by some underlying condition or disease. Normal blood pH must be maintained within a narrow range of 7.35-7.45 to ensure the proper functioning of metabolic processes and the delivery of the right amount of oxygen to tissues. Acidosis refers to an excess of acid in the blood that causes the pH to fall below 7.35, and alkalosis refers to an excess of base in the blood that causes the pH to rise above 7.45. Many conditions and diseases can interfere with pH control in the body and cause a person's blood pH to fall outside of healthy limits.
