To affect survival, it. Microbiology for Surgical Infections: Diagnosis, Prognosis and Treatment explores current trends in etiology and antibiotic resistance of pathogens responsible for devastating and complex surgical infections.

Clinicians and researchers report the most recent advances in diagnostic approaches to bacterial and non-bacterial surgical infections, including invasive fungal infections. Infection Present at Time of Surgery (PATOS) - 2 • Only select PATOS=YES if it applies to the depth of the SSI that is being attributed to the procedure • Examples: – If a patient had evidence of an intra-abdominal infection at the time of surgery and then later returns with an organ space SSI, the PATOS field would be selected as a YES.
