Description

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is becoming more common worldwide. The morbidity and
mortality associated with C. difficile is also increasing at an alarming rate. Critically ill patients are
at particularly high risk for this disease due to the prevalence of multiple risk factors in the patient
population. Treatment of C. difficile continues to be a difficult problem in patients with severe or
recurrent disease. This article seeks to provide a broad understanding of CDI in the intensive care
unit, with special emphasis on risk factor identification, treatment options, and disease prevention.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Define Gram-positive cocci
• List the clinically important Gram-positive cocci and their corresponding diseases
• Describe the clinicopathological features of staphylococcal and streptococcal infections in intensive care patients
• Explain the choice of antibiotics commonly used to treat Gram-positive cocci infections in intensive care patients
