Monitoring of infections by determination of Reactive Protein C in the patients in central intensive care

Session

Pharmaceutical and Natural Sciences

Description

The purpose of this paper is to determine infections at two different clinics, the intensive unit of the infectious clinic and the intensive care MIQ, based on the variability of CRPs (reactive protein C) and PTCs (procalcitonin) in patients with suspected intrahospital infections. There were also changes in these parameters based on the gender of patients admitted to the two clinics, as well as these compared with the control group who were healthy patients. During this study 136 patients were examined in total 27 patients from intensive care unit of infectious clinic and 109 patients from central intensive care unit in UCCK in Prishtina. By gender 63 cases or 46% were ill females while 73 cases or 54% were males. In the control group 63 cases were 61% female while 53 cases or 39% were male. The parameters determined are CRP and PCT. The assays were worked in the Biochemistry Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory at UCCK. In our cases CRP and PCT resulted in a significantly higher proportion of hospitalized patients than the control group, meaning patients other than primary illnesses were also with bacterial infections, the results being of high statistical reliability demonstrating conclusive risk of hospitalized patients for secondary diseases. Based on the results presented, the level of infection marker CRP in the central intensive care unit was higher than in the intensive unit of the infective clinic, thus the possibility of central intensive care unit patients for infections is higher than in the infective clinic. It is worth noting that with low CRP reliability, values were slightly higher in males than females.
