  • Abscess [r]: Accumulation of purulent material in tissues, organs, or circumscribed spaces, usually associated with signs of infection. [e]
  • Acute kidney injury [r]: Formerly termed acute renal failure (ARF), an abrupt (within 48 hours) reduction in kidney function currently defined as an absolute increase in serum creatinine, a percentage increase in serum creatinine , or a reduction in urine output beyond quantitatively defined levels [e]
  • Bacterial endocarditis [r]: Inflammation of the heart caused by the direct invasion of bacteria and leading to deformity and destruction of the valve leaflets. [e]
  • Bacteria [r]: A major group of single-celled microorganisms. [e]
  • Cellulitis [r]: Acute, diffuse, inflammation of loose connective tissue, particularly the deep subcutaneous tissues, and sometimes muscle, usually due to infection and associated with redness, pain, swelling and warmth to the touch [e]
  • Central venous catheterization [r]: Surgical procedure used for inserting a medical tube into one of the large veins of the body. [e]
  • Cross infection [r]: Any infection which a patient contracts in a health-care institution. [e]
  • Cystitis [r]: Inflammation of the urinary bladder, often resulting from a bacterial infection. [e]
  • Digital object identifier [r]: Unique label for a computer readable object that can be found on the internet, usually used in academic journals. [e]

  • Health care quality assurance [r]: Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. [e]
  • Medical error [r]: Mistakes made in a medical setting with respect to patient care, sanitation or medical administration. A mistake is less than optimal action, thus failure to set up efficient procedures and routines which minimize mistakes is medical error. [e]
  • Peritonitis [r]: An inflammation of the peritoneum (the serous membrane which lines part of the abdominal cavity and some of the viscera it contains). [e]
  • Phagocytosis [r]: That part of immune response in which defensive cells such as neutrophils and macrophages surround and "digest" foreign particles [e]
  • Platelet [r]: Cell fragments circulating in the blood. [e]
  • Pseudomembranous enterocolitis [r]: Enterocolitis with the formation and passage of pseudomembranous material in the stools, caused by a necrolytic exotoxin made by Clostridium difficile. [e]
  • Quorum sensing [r]: Ability of populations of bacteria to communicate and coordinate their behavior via inter-cellular and inter-species signaling molecules. [e]
  • Staphylococcus epidermidis [r]: Non-motile Gram-positive cocci, a part of human flora and the mucous membranes of animals, that's becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics due to continuous overuse. [e]
