New MRSA threat (associated with Swine flu)
hc2d. ^ | 10.21.2009 | n/a

Posted on 10/21/2009 1:05:28 PM PDT by wolfcreek

The potential of the threat from the new strain of the antibiotic-resistant bacterium, which is becoming more widespread, is outlined in a study in the journal Lancet Infectious Diseases.

Known as community acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA), it poses a significant risk outside hospitals.

Many of the children and teens who supposedly died from H1N1 had non-flu related infections that likely killed them.

This MRSA stuff was a big problem the last couple of years and now is attacking people whose immune systems are weakened by the flu.

My Sister died a few years back after getting the flu and aquiring the pneumonia version of MRSA.

MRSA in the Lungs sounds ghastly.

Part of the problem with MRSA cases ( community acquired or otherwise) is that people DO NOT follow directions on medications. Also docs have been over prescribing antibiotics now for some time.

Interestingly the UK has found a way to knock down most of the MRSA germs ——IPA. Yup nothing fancier than wipes with isopropyl alcohol. More effective than any of the other magic cleaners that are out there. Keep it in mind

I seriously expect either the wahhabi's, or the radical socialists to try and kill Americans with a virus or superbug. It would pay for all Americans to be vigilant with regard to public health and make prudent preparations...imho.

What would happen in the time leading up to the release? Peoplewho knew what was to happen would do anything to get and remain in power, so they would be spared...they might lie about their candidate and hide his origins, hide stories from the public, and then put draconian policies in place once elected. Sound like anyone we know?

It got in her blood stream after a fall in a boat. It first destroyed her liver. Her kidneys and lungs were next. It took 20 days from onset to the end.

My condolences on such a sad loss. It was reported recently that MRSA is in the sand at some beach resorts on the US Pacific, and a susceptible person could acquire it from playing in the sand, especially being buried in sand for instance. We’re about to reap the harvest of overprescribed antibiotics by docs and farm vets for decades.

I got MRSA in 2001 due to knee surgery. But it went misdiagnosed for 7 years by a doctor who treated me for shingles. I kept having sessions of this stuff, each getting worse than the last until I ended up in the hospital twice in 2008. I changed physicians. They finally did the right testing on me and found that now I am also a carrier. Beck-trim, a very old antibiotic, keeps it at bay when I am threatened with it. I know this treatment will not be effective forever, but hope something else will be made for it. I know I will never be free of it.

Thanks for this info: “Interestingly the UK has found a way to knock down most of the MRSA germs ——IPA. Yup nothing fancier than wipes with isopropyl alcohol. More effective than any of the other magic cleaners that are out there. Keep it in mind.”

When I first read “IPA and UK, I thought of India Pale Ale, which might work because of its high alcohol contents.

That is Bactrim an incredible combo drug. It is available in an IV form, syrup/suspension and tablet form.

If you are not allergic to sulfa drugs, you might want to demand that they put you on Bactrim.

You can take the tablets by mouth and don’t have to be in a hospital or getting the drug by IV.

Below are some references re using Bactrim for MRSA:

Against your sorrowful wishes I pray for you a long life and a quick return to health. I completely understand that you don’t much wish to at this sad stage. G-d makes His plans and we don’t get to see His side of the Tapestry while we are here on Earth.

Many blessings of comfort, FRiend.

I am sorry to hear about your sister. Yes, the body is open to secondary bacterial and viral attacks due to the immune system’s weakened state. Sometimes they name the cause of the death - the secondary infection rather than the flu. That keeps the flu death numbers lower than they should be.

“CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Researchers at the University of Illinois helped lead a collaborative effort to uncover a completely new treatment strategy for serious Staphylococcus aureus (“Staph”) infections. The research, published Feb. 14 in ScienceXpress, the online version of Science magazine, comes at a time when strains of antibiotic-resistant Staph (known as MRSA, for methicillin-resistant S. aureus) are spreading in epidemic proportions in hospital and community settings.”

Thank you, Sara.

From the time I got the call she was in the hospital until I could get to her bedside, it was too late. She was on life support and fading fast. Organs failing one by one.

24 hours later after a slew of experimental drugs, she was gone.

She was a beautiful and young 38 yr. old woman. I miss her greatly.

Not necessarily. Until the last few weeks, I had never heard of anyone I know who has contracted MRSA. Two weeks ago, I learned of a friend who had it, and no one knows where he got it. And then in the last week, another friend’s toddler daughter contracted it and spent some time in the hospital because the infection was so bad. No one knows where she got it either. I’m assuming one got it from a locker room and the other got it from a nursery or playground. But really, no one knows!
