Winning Against MRSA
In 1961, shortly after a new antibiotic, methicillin was introduced into the medical world, a new kind of infection and disease was identified in the United Kingdom. This disease is known as MRSA. MRSA is an acronym for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. Just barely over 50 years old, MRSA is considered a new disease, and was transmitted to its first human victim in 1968, just years after its identification.
It is estimated that over one million people are infected with MRSA every year. This disease targets patients in hospitals. The commonplace MRSA infection can increase the length of a hospital stay by 200 percent, which greatly increases healthcare expenses.
It is important to learn more about this disease, especially if you or a loved one may have MRSA. In this book, you will not only find general information that may help you determine if you need to be tested, but you will also learn how to identify symptoms and potential treatments.
