Hospital acquired infections (HAI), or nosocomial infections - infections acquired by patients or staff during in-patient care (hospital admission). This is the point or annual prevalence of HAI (or HCAI), equivalent to a number of cases of an infection per year. HAI can be caused by any pathogen, including bacteria, viruses and fungi.
This report provides the current incident population for Hospital Acquired Infections across 15 Major Markets (USA, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic and Japan) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current incidence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of Hospital Acquired Infections have been quantified and presented alongside the overall incidence figures. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.
