Laboratorní bakteriologie (VSLB)
At the end of the subject, students will better understand the course of all steps of bacterial diagnostic and interpretation of laboratory results. So they will be able to better understand the timing of the process and interpretation of the results.
Students absolved the whole process of bacteriology diagnostics of individual specimens, namely: throat swab, nasal swab, skin swab, urine samples, stool samples etc. Students participated on following actions: • Material admission in the laboratory, its elaboration according to operation standards, especially inoculation on cultivation media • Evaluation of the results of cultivaction, identification of (especially pathogenic) microorganisms • Performing in vitro susceptibility testing for antimicrobial agents + its reading, including 1) eventual decision about testing susceptibility againts more agents (in case of resistant strains) and 2) decision about performing tests and reading of the tests for epidemiologicaly important antibiotic resistance patterns (ESBL, MRSA, VRE etc.) • Interpretation of results, including discussion about eventual antibiotic therapy (getting acquainted with the work of antibiotic centre) • For all steps: inputing the corresponding data into the Laboratory Information System. Evaluation: credit were given after practical execution of one diagnostic test with end report. All reports were archived at Microbiology Institute.
