Hospital Acquired Infections(HAI) available through

Bharatbook added a new report on "Hospital-Acquired Infections(HAI)" which gives this report is a new infection that develops in a patient during hospitalization.

Online PR News – 11-October-2011 – – A hospital-acquired infection (HAI) is a new infection that develops in a patient during hospitalization. It is usually defined as an infection that is identified at least forty-eight to seventy-two hours following admission, so infections incubating, but not clinically apparent, at admission are excluded. This type of infection is also known as a nosocomial infection.

Both diagnostics and treatment segments have unique circumstances for growth which are discussed in detail in the report. Worldwide, both segments combined are worth more than $9 billion for 2010 with 2015 sales expected to reach $10.3 billion. The market has shown an increase of 3% annually with sales increasing from $7.9 billion in 2005. Although the treatment segment will continue to struggle to maintain growth, the testing segment will offset declines beginning in 2012. This report primarily focuses on bacterial nosocomial infections with some mention of viral infections. The major consideration is given to bacterial nosocomial infections because a) they are the most frequent type of infections spread in the hospital setting, and b) the practical aspects of diagnosis and therapy are more meaningful based both on medical considerations and on market considerations.

Some of the issues discussed in this report include:

Development of Potential Life-Saving Products
Development of Fast Testing Systems
Growing Drug Resistance
Development of Better Pharmacodiagnostics
Market Opportunity and Growth Rates Expected in Diagnostics versus Treatment

Market analysis in this report considers primarily the epidemiological considerations and the size of patient groups both in the United States and globally, where available. We have accumulated the most recent data available, understanding that virtually no organization does extensive studies on these applications on a regular basis. Many studies are highly localized and may only apply to a community, state or country (more often countries that are not a part of the major markets for nosocomial diagnostic and therapeutic products). In many instances, we have had to draw from broader epidemiologic data, that is, on data that reach outside of the hospital environment in order to try and construct a picture of the nosocomial testing and treatment needs.
