MRSA

Many discussions now center around Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus  or MRSA.   The following discusses this most common of hospital acquired infections and a significant cause of death.A common misconception is that MRSA is a virus or caused by virus.  In fact you will probably still find some argument about it.  But my understanding is that MRSA is not caused by a virus. Instead, MRSA is a strain of the bacteria Staphylococcus aureas. MRSA even got its name because it is a bacteria that is resistant to the antibiotic methicillin. It has since become resistant to almost all types of antibiotics. If you get MRSA, and a hospital is treating it, it almost become a game of cat and mouse as they determine what antibiotic might be most effective in your body vs. dealing with horrific side effects and allergic reactions – or in other words, your body saying; WAIT!  What the he#% is that!!

New strains of MRSA have recently emerged in the community that are capable of causing severe infections in otherwise healthy individuals. These MRSA infections are known as CAMRSA or community-associated MRSA. MRSA infections that are acquired in the hospitals and healthcare facilities are known as healthcare-associated MRSA.

Depending on where you get your statistics from. If you get MRSA during a hospital stay, you have about a 5-10% chance of dying. MRSA now kills more people than the aids virus.
