Clinical Information:
The detection of microorganisms in a patient’s blood has diagnostic and prognostic. importance. Blood cultures are essential in the diagnosis and treatment of the etiologic agents of sepsis. Bacterial sepsis constitutes one of the most serious infectious diseases and, therefore, the expeditious detection and identification of bloodborne bacterial pathogens is an important function of the diagnostic microbiology laboratory.
 
Reference Value:
No growth after 5 days
 
Interpretation:
Positive cultures of Bacteria and yeast are reported with the organism identification and susceptiblity testing. Positive cultures are usually an indication of infection and are reported as soon as detected. Correlation of culture results and the clinical situation is required for optimal patient management. A final negative report is issued after 5 days of incubation.
