Clinical Information:
Bacterial tracheitis is usually caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Other bacteria can also cause it, including: Streptococcus pneumonia Hemophilic influenza and Moraxella catarrhalis. Most cases of bacterial tracheitis develop after a common cold or flu. Following an URI, bacteria can more easily invade child’s trachea. This can cause infection, inflammation, and rapid swelling. .
 
Reference Value:
No growth or normal flora
 
Interpretation:
Any microorganism found where no resident flora is present is considered significant and is reported. For specimens contaminated with the usual bacterial flora, bacteria that are potentially pathogenic are identified.
