Abstract

The need for monitoring both areas for alteration in microbial flora, which may result in invasion or adverse effect on internal organs of the host, has been an accepted scientific fact of modern medicine for years. Questions remain, however, on how much monitoring needs to be done. What areas of the patients and the environment should be tested, and what are the practical uses of the results of such monitoring? Before attempting to answer these questions, let me give you an overview of how microbial monitoring has been used at the Medical College of Virginia hospitals and other institutions to identify and solve problems related to nosocomial and opportunistic infection.
