PHOENIX - Jan. 19, 2014 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video.  Their newest production discusses Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, also known as CRE.

According to the CDC, more than 9,000 healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are caused by CRE each year. CRE are a family of germs that are difficult to treat because they have high levels of resistance to antibiotics. The term Carbapenem, describes a type of antibiotics that are frequently used to treat severe infections and are often considered the antibiotics of last resort.

“Klebsiella species and Escherichia coli (E. coli) are examples of Enterobacteriaceae, a normal part of the human intestinal bacteria that can become carbapenem-resistant,”reports Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Healthy people usually do not get CRE infections. In healthcare settings, CRE infections most commonly occur among patients who are receiving treatment for other conditions.  CRE infections are very difficult to treat and can be deadly.  We hope this video helps to shed some light on this topic.”

This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Mold Solutions, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental and Healthy Indoors magazine to name a few.
