Summary

Infection Control and Disease Prevention Measures

  • 1 in 9 women in Long Island will develop breast cancer
  • Mortality rate is the percentage of the population that die due to a disease within a specific period of time
  • Epidemic refers to the widespread of an infectious disease in a community at the same time, while pandemic refers to an epidemic over a large geographical area affecting a large portion of the population
  • Disease prevention measures include sewage treatment, water purification, pasteurization, and vaccination
  • Infectious disease is defined as one caused by a pathogen, and infection means the pathogen is living in the human body, multiplying, and causing symptoms
  • The chain of infection describes the spread of infection in the population, with components including infectious agent, reservoir, portal of exit, mode of transmission, portal of entry, and susceptible host
  • Infection control measures include standard precautions, handwashing, the use of antiseptics and disinfectants, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals
  • Antibiotic resistance is a concern due to factors such as overuse and misuse
  • Medical asepsis and surgical asepsis are used to reduce the possible number of pathogens and remove all pathogens and microorganisms, respectively
  • The body's natural defense against disease includes the first line of defense (intact skin, mucous membranes), second line of defense (nonspecific measures taken by the body to kill infectious agents), and third line of defense (immunosuppression)
  • Factors that influence infection include age, trauma, illness, general state of health, comorbidity, nutritional status, and fatigue and stress
  • Invasive therapies, such as IVs, can increase the risk of infection due to providing a pathway into the circulatory system
