Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped, facultative anaerobe in the family of Pseudomonadaceae.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections may lead to catheter-associated urinary tract infection, lower respiratory tract infection (ventilated patients), wound infection, or sepsis.

In hospitals, Pseudomonas aeruginosa plays a major role as nosocomial pathogen due to its frequency of occurrence and its multiple resistances.

The main transmission path is direct or indirect contact with contaminated persons or objects.
