  • New technologies help us understand how infectious diseases spread in a hospital environment - Inria
    of this research project led by teams at Inserm the Institut Pasteur ENS Lyon and Inria in conjunction with the AP HP at the Hôpital Maritime de Berck sur Mer Pas de Calais have just been published in PLOS Computational Biology In Europe 5 to 12 of hospital patients are affected by nosocomial infections They result in higher mortality prolonged hospital stays and costly treatment antibiotics surgery etc In 2009 590 patients and healthcare professionals at the Hôpital Maritime de Berck sur Mer took part in the i Bird experiment which lasted six months and which aimed to determine the pathways by which certain bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics are spread Particular attention was paid to monitoring Staphylococcus aureus an especially virulent infectious agent To achieve this the participants were equipped with wireless sensors the size of a watch which at 30 second intervals record anonymously all the people who come within close proximity to them This made it possible to map out all their interactions with other people inside the Berck sur Mer hospital explained Didier Guillemot Inserm Institut Pasteur UVSQ AP HP who conceived the project with Pierre Yves Boëlle and Éric Fleury At the same time nasal swabs were taken weekly to obtain microbiological data on the carriage and dissemination of certain clones genetic subgroups of bacteria of Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus A vertiginous amount of data to be processed and validation of a dissemination model In other words close proximity contacts between individuals helps spread Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus Apart from the purely medical aspects these results validate the use of wireless devices to assess the contact network within a hospital and open up new possibilities for controlling the spread of nosocomial infections according to the researchers The experiment entailed the construction of a model to predict the dissemination of Staphylococcus aureus which can be used for other experimental setups to prevent or stem the spread of infection in the event of an epidemic Exhaustive data and the use of wireless technology a unique research model in epidemiology i Bird is distinguished by the exhaustive nature of the data gathered on site and the use of wireless technologies The experiment funded by the European MOSAR programme Mastering hOSpital Antimicrobial Resistance in Europe and the French clinical research programme required synergy between experts in the fields of medicine and computer networks These experts included Éric Fleury Professor at ENS Lyon INRIA Chair and head of the DANTE team Didier Guillemot Professor of Epidemiology and the Université de Versailles Saint Quentin Director of Inserm Institut Pasteur UVSQ Research Unit 1181 Thomas Obadia doctoral researcher at Inserm Pierre Yves Boëlle University Professor and hospital practitioner at the Pierre et Marie Curie Faculty of Medicine While i Bird focuses on understanding how nosocomial diseases are transmitted it is a scientific experiment not a practical application for solving epidemic problems explained Didier Guillemot Control instruments still need to be developed to assess these risks To obtain even more detailed results
