How does the examination of stained specimens facilitate patient care?ANSWER: Stained specimens enable the physician to provide a quick, tentative diagnosis and differentiate between types of infections.Culturing Specimens in the Medical OfficePlace a sample of specimen on a culture mediumMedium ~ nutrientsPlace in incubator for growth A colony develops as microorganism multipliesCulture MediaLiquid, semisolid, or solid containing agarTypes Selective NonselectiveSpecial culture unitsInoculating a Culture PlateTransfer some of the specimen onto a culture plateLabel the plate correctlyQualitative analysis – determination of type of pathogenQuantitative analysis – number of bacteria present in sampleInoculating a Culture Plate (cont.)Qualitative QuantitativeCulturing Specimens (cont.)Incubating culture plates Interpreting culturesCharacteristics of coloniesRelative numberChanges to media around coloniesDetermining Antimicrobial SensitivityAppropriate antimicrobial An outside lab reportsSensitive Intermediate ResistantInoculate and place antimicrobial discsIncubate and evaluateApply Your KnowledgeANSWER: Selective culture media allows the growth of only certain kinds of bacteria. Unselective culture media support the growth of most organisms.The office received a culture sensitivity report on a bacteria that said it was resistant to an antimicrobial. What does this mean?ANSWER: It means that the bacteria was not killed by the antimicrobial and that there was an overgrowth of the bacteria.Bravo!What is the process for culturing a specimen?In Summary46.1 As an office medical assistant, you may assist the physician with several microbiologic procedures that aid in diagnosing and treating infectious diseases. 46.2 Microorganisms can cause disease by using up nutrients or other materials needed by the cells and tissues they invade, damaging body cells, and producing toxins. 46.3 Microorganisms are classified on the basis of their structure. Specific microorganisms are named in a standard way.In Summary (cont.)46.4 Viruses are among the smallest known infectious agents causing common diseases, including the common cold, influenza, chickenpox, croup, hepatitis, and warts. 46.5 The initial symptoms of AIDS are usually severe flu-like symptoms followed later by systemic, respiratory oral, gastrointestinal, nervous system, and skin complaints. The general symptoms of hepatitis include jaundice, diminished appetite, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, joint pain or tenderness, stomach pain, and general malaise.In Summary (cont.)46.6 Bacteria are single-celled prokaryotic organisms that reproduce very quickly.46.7 Protozoans are single-celled eukaryotic organisms found in soil and water.46.8 Fungi are eukaryotic organisms including molds and yeasts. 46.9 Multicellular parasites include roundworms, tapeworms, flatworms, ticks, lice, and mites. In Summary (cont.)46.10 The steps involved in diagnosing an infection are to: examine the patient; obtain one or more specimens; examine the specimen directly either by wet mount or smear; culture the specimen; and determine the culture’s antibiotic sensitivity. 46.11 The general guidelines for obtaining specimens are to: obtain the specimen with great care to avoid causing the patient harm, discomfort, or undue embarrassment;collect the material from a site;obtain the specimen at the proper time;use appropriate collection devices;obtain a sufficient quantity of the specimen; andobtain the specimen before antimicrobial therapy begins.In Summary (cont.)46.12 When transporting specimens to outside laboratories, the medical assistant should: Follow proper collection techniques using specific containers provided by the laboratory; Maintain the samples in a state as close to their original as possible; andProtect anyone who handles a specimen container from exposure to potentially infectious material. 46.13 Direct examination of culture specimens is accomplished in two ways: wet mounts and KOH mounts. In Summary (cont.)46.14 To prepare a stained specimen, the medical assistant must first prepare a smear, fix the sample to the slide so it does not wash off during the staining process, and follow a specific staining procedure. 46.15 To culture a specimen, the medical assistant should place a sample of the specimen on or in a specialized culture medium and allow it to grow in an incubator for 24 to 48 hours. In Summary (cont.)46.16 Performing an antimicrobial sensitivity test involves taking a sample of the isolated pathogen, suspending it in a small amount of liquid medium, and streaking it evenly on the surface of a culture plate. Small disks of filter paper containing various antimicrobial agents are placed on top of the inoculated agar plate. The plate is then incubated at 37º C, and the results are evaluated the following day.Each organism's environment, for the most part, consists of other organisms. ~ Kevin Kelly End of Chapter 46
