Staphylococcus Aureus Treatment
Staphylococcus aureus is the most dangerous of all of the many common staphylococcal bacteria
and often causes skin infections but can cause pneumonia, heart valve infections, and bone
infections. Additionally, some strains produce toxins that can cause food poisoning, toxic shock
syndrome, or scalded skin syndrome.
The bacteria can spread from person to person by direct contact, through contaminated objects
(such as gym equipment, telephones, door knobs, television remote controls, or elevator buttons),
or, less often, by inhalation of infected droplets dispersed by sneezing or coughing.
Antibiotics are chosen based on whether they are likely to be effective against the strain causing
the infection. However, many strains have developed resistance to the effects of antibiotics.
Whether the bacteria are resistant and which antibiotics they resist often depend on where people
got the infection: in a hospital or other health care facility or outside of such a facility (in the
Because antibiotics are widely used in medical facilities, hospital staff members commonly carry
resistant strains. When people are infected in a health care facility, the bacteria are usually
resistant to several types of antibiotics, including almost all antibiotics that are related to
penicillin (called beta-lactam antibiotics). Strains of bacteria that are resistant to almost all beta-
lactam antibiotics are called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA; methicillin is a
type of penicillin).
As seen below, Pulsethera’s technology is effective in killing Staphylococcus aureus.
