healthcare associated infections
Every year millions of people are affected by healthcare associated infections, causing great patient suffering. Bactiguard´s antimicrobial and preventive solution reduces the number of healthcare associated infections related to the use of medical devices. By reducing healthcare associated infections we increase patient safety, reduce the use of antiobiotics ant thereby prevent the spread of multi-resistant bacteria, save significant costs for the healthcare system and most important of all, we save lives.
Our time with antibiotics is running outAccording to the World Health Organization antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases. Without urgent action, we are heading for a future in which infections and minor injuries could once again kill. World Antibiotic Awareness Week is a global, multi-year campaign, initiated by WHO, to put AMR in the spotlight.
