unit, 77 developed infections, a period prevalence of 19.2% and an incidence of 13.7 infections per 1000 patient- days. The most frequent infections were: pneumonia (50.0%), primary bloodstream (40.9%) and skin and soft tissues (6.5%). In logistic regression analysis, mechanical ventilation (OR = 2.69, 95% CI: 1.39–5.19) and total parenteral nutrition (OR = 5.62, 95% CI: 2.78–11.35) were ...
SUSPECTED PEDIATRIC BONE AND JOINT INFECTIONS UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINE I. OVERVIEW: Bone and joint infections are relatively common invasive bacterial infections in children and adolescents. These infections can develop via hematogenous spread, via direct spread from adjacent soft tissue infection, or as a result

ment of the metabolic syndrome (Table 1) . Prevalence of the Metabolic Syndrome and Risk for Cardiovascular Events It is estimated that approximately one fifth of the US population has the metabolic syndrome, and prevalence increases with age. The prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in a healthy American population is approxi-mately 24% .
• According to the latest CDC prevalence reports, 1 in 59 children (1.7%) in the United States had a diagnosis of ASD in 2014, reflecting a 2.5-fold increase from the prevalence rate in 2000 • From the 1940s to 2016, there has been a 15-fold increase in the prevalence of ASD
Swaziland’s Demographic and Health Survey done in 2006–07 showed a severe generalised epidemic, with an HIV prevalence of 26% in 15–49 year olds. UNAIDS’ modelled estimates of prevalence and incidence indicated a similarly severe epidemic. With a goal of reducing new HIV infections, Swaziland planned to scale up national treatment and
