legion-umbrella-ella-ella

Yesterday, the 7th mortality from legionella in NYC occurred. There have been 71 cases since July 10, all of them in the South Bronx after Legionella was found in cooling towers. This bacteria typically live in reservoirs of water or humidified spaces. It is a common cause (2 to 9 percent) of community-acquired and hospital-acquired pneumonia known as Legionnaire’s disease. The NYC Department of Health has issued suggestions on diagnosis and management of these patients; new cases should be reported to 866-NYC-DOH1 (1-866-692-3641).

Intravenous in-line filters for preventing morbidity and mortality in neonates | Cochrane

Background: Preterm or sick newborn infants are often fed with nutrients and fluids that are delivered directly into a vein. This intravenous delivery can be associated with infection, toxins released by bacteria, and tiny particles that may be in the fluids, such as rubber and plastic, going into the blood. In adults, placing a filter in the intravenous line has been reported to be effective in reducing such risks, and filters are increasingly being recommended for use in newborn infants.
