Tomsawyers Sale cases per 1
Group b streptococcus screening Approximately 10 to 30 percent of pregnant women carry gbs in the vagina or rectum or surrounding area.While gbs is generally harmless in healthy adults, it may cause stillbirth and serious Tomsawyers Outlet UK infections in babies. Sexual transmission of group b strep is possible, but group b strep is not considered a sexually transmitted infection because your genital area may be colonized by bacteria you carry in your own gastrointestinal tract.It's also not the same as group a strep, the bacteria that usually cause strep throat. Why do i need to be tested for group b strep?Getting screened for gbs late in pregnancy and receiving antibiotic treatment during labor if you're a carrier reduces your baby's risk of becoming infected. For this reason, the centers for disease control and prevention(Cdc), the Tomsawyers online mens gray black jackets gore-tex American Academy of Pediatrics(Aap), and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists(Acog)Recommend that all pregnant women with two exceptions routinely be screened for gbs at 35 to 37 weeks. (The two exceptions are women who have previously had a baby with a gbs disease or who have had a urinary tract infection caused by gbs during their current pregnancy.These women don't need to be screened because they're already considered at high risk and will be automatically treated during labor. ) Before pregnant women were routinely screened and treated, approximately 2 to 3 babies per 1, 000 live births suffered from what's know as early-Onset gbs disease, a life-Threatening illness that shows up in the first week of life(Most often in the first 24 hours after birth).Now, there are about 0.35 Tomsawyers Sale cases per 1, 000 live births. What are the consequences ofEarly-Onset gbs disease?Early-Onset gbs disease can cause sepsis(An infection in the blood), pneumonia, and, less frequently, meningitis.Some of these babies, particularly those with meningitis, will have long-Term health problems such as hearing or vision loss, cerebral palsy, or developmental disabilities, and about 5 percent won't survive.Babies have a lower survival rate than full-Term babies, and those who survive are at higher risk for long-Term problems from the disease. Why not screen me for gbs at my first prenatal visit and treat me right away if i test positive?The test isn't done until late in your pregnancy because the bacteria can come and go.So the result of an early vaginal or rectal culture is not a good predictor of whether or not your genital area will be colonized when you give birth.May be negative at one point during pregnancy and colonized by the time you go into labor, or vice versa.For the same reason, you need to be screened during each pregnancy. Likewise, taking antibiotics before you go into labor doesn't prevent your genital area from becoming colonized again, so unlike treatment during labor it doesn't reduce the risk of transmitting the infection to your baby. However, if you have a urinary tract infection(Uti)Caused by gbs during pregnancy, you'll be treated with oral antibiotics right away and have a repeat urine culture done after treatment to make sure the infection is gone, just as you would for any uti during pregnancy. Although oral antibiotics will take care of the bacteria in your urinary tract, some bacteria may remain in your genital tract or return there later.Having gbs in your urine is a sign that you have a lot of it in your genital tract, so you'll automatically be given iv antibiotics during labor.
