Staphylococcus aureus

by anresis

Methicillin-resistance in S. aureus (MRSA) is declining.

Staphylococci are together with E. coli the most frequent causes for infections in human. Beside wound and soft tissue infections they also cause sepsis, joint, bone and cardiac valve infections. During recent years (2004-2018), the MRSA rate decreased considerably from 12.8% to 4.6%. Simultaneously a shift of MRSA from the inpatient to the outpatient setting was observed.
