Several Nasty Superbug Germs
MRSA or Methicillin
Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus is one of the most recognized superbugs around.
Since it is very difficult to treat, it can be deadly. It is associated with
urinary tract infections, bone and joint infection and can result in ruptured
abscesses which are difficult to heal. It has been identified in health care
settings, homes, locker rooms, gyms and schools. Mortality Rate: About 35%.
This one can be deadly if
it gets into your urinary tract or seep
into an open wound. Then, it can become life threatening. VRE, as it is known,
is a leading cause of urinary tract infections and meningitis. If this gets you
while you are undergoing surgery, it could kill you. Mortality Rate: About
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a bacterium commonly found
in soil and water. But if it gets into you through a break in the skin, it can turn
deadly. The superbug, associated with lung, kidney and blood infections, is
particularly serious in patients hospitalized with cancer, cystic fibrosis and
burns. It causes urinary tract infections, respiratory system infections, bone and
joint infections among many others. Mortality Rate: near 50%.
Infections by A. baumannii tend to happen most in immunosupressed patients with
underlying diseases. The superbug also attacks patients having invasive treatments
in the hospital. It can cause severe central nervous system infections, meningitis
and ventriculitis, especially in patients undergoing head trauma. It is also
associated with blood and urinary tract infections and pneumonia. Mortality rate:

and other objects when people infected do not wash their hands well. The bacteria
generates spores that are very difficult to eliminate. Once the infection spreads,
it produces toxins that attack the lining of the intestine. Symptoms include
diarrhea to inflammation of the colon, which can lead to death. Among those most
likely to come down with the disease are older adults in hospitals or
