A Systematic Review of The Association Between Use of Invasive Devices and Nosocomial Infection
Hospital acquired infections (HAI) also known as nosocomial infection is a common concern for hospitals all over the world. These infections are a preventable cause of morbidity, mortality, and loss in hospital revenues. Nosocomial infections can be acquired in various ways but this study will focus on the use of invasive devices (ID) in hospitals. A systematic review will be done to define the interrelationship between the use of ID and acquisition of nosocomial infections. This study will look at susceptible populations and units, different types of nosocomial infections, the pathogens associated, various IDs, and the various methods of research on nosocomial infections. The hypothesis is that the use of IDs is positively correlated to nosocomial infections.
