Therapeutics evaluation on whole range dynamic management for infection control in cardiac surgery patients during rehabilitation

Objective: To explore the effect of whole range dynamic management on infection control in cardiac surgery patients during rehabilitation.

Methods: The study involved 160 patients, who were admitted in cardiac surgery of our hospital from January 2014 to 2017, and assigned them into study group and control group by a random number table. Patients in study group were supervised with a whole range dynamic management, while others were administrated with a conventional method, counting and analyzing their baseline diseases, rate of infection during hospital-stay, infection sites, and length of hospital-stay.

Results: For composition of baseline diseases, there was no statistic difference between two groups (P<0.05). In terms of postoperative infection, there were 10 cases in study group (12.5%), which were lower than 24 cases in control group (30%), so there was statistical significance (P<0.05). The main infection sites were respiratory tract and digestive tract in study group while incision and respiratory tract in control group, compared their constituent ratio, the difference was significant (P<0.05). The average length of stay was 17.25 ± 3.22 d in study group but 27.43 ± 5.17 d in control group, so there was statistical significance (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Using whole range dynamic management benefits to reduce the incidence of postoperative infection in cardiac surgery patients, especially to better prevent incision infection and quicken their recovery.
