Zusammenfassung

Infektionen tragen zur Morbidität und Mortalität auf Intensivstationen entscheidend bei. Ursachen hierfür sind:
  • Erhöhte Infektanfälligkeit der Patienten infolge krankheitsbedingt geschwächter Immunabwehr;

  • Antibiotikaresistenz von Krankheitserregern, deren Selektion v. a. durch die Anwendung von Breitbandantibiotika begünstigt wird;

  • Verweilkatheter und Gefäßzugänge (z. B. ZVK, Swan-Ganz-Katheter, Urinkatheter) als Eintrittsstelle für pathogene Keime.
