Nov. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health.  The latest educational video discusses the threat to human health due to the presence of Klebsiella in healthcare environments.

Klebsiella is a type of Gram-negative bacteria that can cause different types of healthcare associated infections (HAIs).  These include pneumonia, bloodstream infections, wound or surgical site infections, and meningitis.

“Increasingly, Klebsiella bacteria have developed antimicrobial resistance, most recently to a class of antibiotics known as carbapenems,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “However, people who have certain health problems like a weakened immune system or whose care requires devices like ventilators or intravenous catheters, and patients who are taking long courses of certain antibiotics are most at risk for Klebsiella infections.  We hope this new online video helps to educate people about this microbial pathogen and ways people can protect their health.”
