Microbiology ‘open 24 hours’ and rapid diagnosis against pneumonia

Elvira Velasco, PP health spokesperson in Congress.

Debate on the need to accelerate access to drugs and treatments against pneumoniae a. Will reach Congress of Deputies at the request of people’s party Which seeks to pressure the government to rapidly “adapt” diagnostic techniques, as well as progressively implement “the full availability of microbiology services”. all year round and 24 hours a day,

Specifically, the bill that PP registered with the Congressional Health Commission covers three axes: on the one hand, it seeks to “make available the health system the resources and investments necessary to optimize it. Access to rapid diagnostic techniques pneumoniae care process”. It is also requested to “promote the progressive inclusion of full availability of microbiology services 24 hours a day”. that makes it possible to contribute system stability”,

This is reflected in the illegitimate proposal that the popular formation has registered with the Health Commission, which emphasizes that pneumonia is currently “one of the most frequent infections and that causes the greatest morbidity and mortality among adults and children.” causes”.

Pneumonia deaths in Spain

“Caused in 2018 according to data published by the National Institute of Statistics” more than 10,400 deaths In our country, represents 2.43 percent of the total”, details the group headed by Elvira VelascoWhich adds that, from 2013 to that date, the number of deaths from pneumonia increased by 25 percent.

Despite having one of the “respiratory problems” most widespread in Spain”, continues the document, “one in five people with pneumonia must be hospitalized for treatment”. and furthermore, “traditional microbiological diagnostic techniques provide results” 48-72 hours“, so that if initial antibiotic treatment is inappropriate, “delaying 72 hours after therapeutic change has clinical consequences.”

“For this reason, the role of the techniques of microbiological diagnosis Accelerating the management of these infections is critical. Conventional identification and cultivation procedures represent a slow and low-yield method, which on occasions provides results late, conditioning insufficient treatment”, explains pp.

In this scenario, he regrets that, “at present, despite being available”, molecular biology technologies “They are rarely used for the diagnosis of pneumonia, although they have a greater clinical impact when applied together with therapeutic optimization programs”.
