Description

Mycobacteria organisms live in water and food sources. Colonization can occur without the host showing any manifestations and is difficult to treat due to a natural resistance to many antibiotics. Mycobacterium infections occur in central vascular access devices (CVADs), particularly in the immunosuppressed patient population. This presentation will give an overview of mycobacterium infections specific to CVADs, the treatment, prevention, and the role of the infusion nurse.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Describe the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical features of mycobacterium.
2. Discuss the diagnosis, treatment, and nursing implications in the care of the patient with mycobacterium CVAD infection.
