Overcoming the threat
of infection outbreaks:
Helping ensure the safety of your team and your patients alike
Infection outbreaks within the ERCP pathway can compromise patient outcomes and place an additional burden on hospitals.1
As antimicrobial resistance and viral pandemics pose an increasing threat to the ability of health systems to maintain services and achieve optimal patient outcomes,2 it becomes ever more important to eliminate preventable infection outbreaks.
While the risk of ERCP-related infections is considered low, they can be severe, multidrug-resistant, and life threatening, highlighting the importance of infection prevention in this clinical setting.1,3,4
Up to 1% of duodenoscope-related infections were associated with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE). 5
In the case of multidrug-resistant infections, the associated mortality rate can be as high as 70%.6
