Hospital acquired infections

Hospital acquired infections - Diagnosis

Basic laboratory tests to trend inflammatory markers and evaluate organ function are often performed. To find out the exact cause of the infection, cultures (blood, urine, body fluid or tissue culture) are often collected. 

Depending on the clinical picture, further tests such as imaging (X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound scans) may be ordered.
