For an extensive review on skin antisepsis before BC collection and prepackaged kits performance, see Garcia et al.

Chest— In addition, this would be associated with decreased workload and risk of occupational exposure to blood-transmissible pathogens for nurses, decreased cost, and improved comfort for patients, by reducing the number of invasive, potentially painful, procedures.

Contaminant blood cultures and resource utilization. In Spain, in a prospective analysis conducted from patients with suspected BSI, the mean volume of blood per BC bottle was estimated at 5 mL Bouza et al.

Sampling site Several studies concluded that peripheral venipuncture is the method of choice for BC collection, escmid-sgm compared with sampling through intravenous catheter, with rates of contamination ranging from 1. There are very few clinical studies directly evaluating the bacterial concentration in BSI, because this measurement requires the use of quantitative BC techniques, which are particularly labor-intensive, and not routinely used. The prognosis for patients with possible chronic Escmmid-sfm fever is favorable in terms of complications and mortality.


Evaluation of positive blood cultures: Several studies reported rates of solitary BC per center between 10 and In such a procedure, the detection depends on the bacterial density at time of samplings, and not all samples will turn positive. B Culturing large volumes of blood ensures micrboiology detection threshold, thus allowing detecting bacteremia whenever the sample is obtained.

Species-driven interpretation guidelines in case of a single-sampling strategy for blood culture. Infective endocarditis in adults: Study Group Research Funding The rational ordering of blood cultures in the emergency department. Indeed, both colonization of the catheter, escmid-sf breakdowns in sterile procedure increase the risk of BCs contamination when BCs samples are drawn through these devices Bates et al. One exception must be outlined: Prolonged incubation and extensive subculturing do not increase recovery of clinically significant microorganisms from standard automated blood cultures.

Chauzy et al used a simple modeling approach to quantify the in vitr Analysis of one hundred and thirty four cases of bacteremia.

What is the relevance of obtaining multiple blood samples for culture? Critically revised the manuscript: As they are based on similar literature data, guidelines from scientific societies are in agreement on most issues. Indeed, although the last decades have experienced dramatic achievements in the development of rapid diagnostic tests relying on innovative technologies, BCs remain the gold-standard not only for the diagnosis of BSI, but also for the identification of the responsible pathogen sand for the testing of their susceptibility to anti-infective agents.


Published online May Despite major progress has been made to improve identification of microorganisms, blood culture BC remains the gold standard and the first line tool for detecting BSIs. Among these, clinically significant bacteria or fungi are mostly low-level CO 2 producers, or slowly growing micro-organisms e.

The New England Journal of Medicine. Timing of specimen collection for blood cultures from febrile patients with bacteremia. A 6 bottles-procedure is necessary whenever the optimal filling of all the bottles is not ensured Accoceberry et al. One sample is enough for confidently detecting bacteremia; the overall results would suggest a continuous escmix-sfm.

Based on these results, the authors conclude that in chronic Q fever patients, complications occur frequently and contribute to the mortality rate. First, as mentioned above, Li et al.

Generally, in adults with a suspicion of BSI, 2—4 BC sets should be obtained in the evaluation of each septic episode Baron et al. Update on detection of bacteremia and fungemia. Recently, a prospective study mnual in the adult emergency departments of three university hospitals compared a single-sampling strategy collecting one large volume of blood 4 bottlesto the standard multi-sampling strategy.
