Some types of staph dangerous for the body that can weaken the immune system. Bacteria act directly against cells of the immune system and facilitate access to other pathological microorganisms. Staphylococcus may cause an allergic reaction, its enzymes are negatively affecting other cells, and the toxins poisoning the body. Especially dangerous these bacteria can be for pregnant women, staph infection leads to damage of internal organs, fetus, neonates manifested pustular wounds, tumors.
Analysis of Staphylococcus aureus is administered in the following cases: if you suspect an infection, caused by Staphylococcus (tonsillitis, pharyngitis), on the bacteriocarrier, prior antibiotic treatment against infections caused by S. aureus in nosocomial infections in the period of regular preventive examinations of nurses and workers of public catering, in pregnancy. To detect staph in the body, passing the biological samples. The study was conducted with a microbiological method. For analysis use the following material: a swab from the nose, oropharynx, breast milk, a single portion of urine, sputum, swab of conjunctiva, ear discharge, urogenital swab, rectal swab, faeces.
For 8-12 hours prior to the collection of sputum consume a large amount of liquid (water). Do not take diuretics for 2 days before urine collection. Eliminate the laxatives and other medicines, the introduction of rectal ointments, suppositories, limit medications that affect intestinal motility (drugs pilocarpine, belladonna, etc.) and the color of the chair (drugs bismuth, iron, barium sulfate) for 3 days prior to collection of feces. Doing research before taking antibiotics and other antimicrobial drugs.
Women should take the urogenital swab or urine to one month or 2 days after. Breast milk collected from the left and right breast in different containers. Men are advised not to urinate for 3 hours before passing urine or urogenital smear. The output indicators analysis are reflected in the number of colony forming units in 1 ml of the material. In healthy people with strong immunity may be detected carriage of Staphylococcus aureus. In this case, the indicator of the result of the analysis can be up to 10 CFU/ml in people with lowered immunity, this figure could reach more than 10 CFU/ml, in this case Staphylococcus aureus may cause severe inflammatory process.
