Urinary Tract Infection


elders 25%


care elders (chronically bacteriuric)

25-50% of women 15-40% of men


increases in women & men after age 65

Urinary Tract Infection Defined

Definition Women: Presence of at least 100,000 colonyforming units (cfu)/mL in a pure culture of voided clean-catch urine Presence of just 1,000 cfu/mL indicates urinary tract infection


*Some labs do not routinely identify & determine the sensitivity of organisms for specimens with <10,000 cfu/mL. May have to special request.

Urinary Tract Infection


tract infectionmost common source of bacteremia, a dangerous systemic infection in long-term care facilities times more likely to occur in catheterized than non-catheterized residents
leads to significant morbidity and mortality in the vulnerable elderly



Urinary Tract Infection Physiologic Changes

Physiologic changes with aging in the urinary tract Age-Related Changes Decreased bladder capacity and increased urine production (especially at night) Decreased voided volume Decreased estrogen w/menopause leads to thinning of vaginal & urethral mucosa Decreased lower urinary tract sensory threshold Men Women

UTIPhysiologic Changes
Physiologic changes with aging in the urinary tract Age-Related Changes Men Women

Problems of urinary storage & emptying

incidence of overflow incontinence from urethral obstruction or stricture Decreased estrogen levels leads to pH changes in vagina, favoring colonization of E. coli, risk of UTI

Prostatic enlargement can lead to urinary obstruction, increased residual urine & infection

Symptoms versus Asymptomatic Bacteriuria

Asymptomatic Bacteriuria (ASB) Defined as the presence of bacteria in urine of patients who do not have dysuria, urinary frequency, urgency, fever, flank pain, or other symptoms related to irritation of the urethra, bladder, or kidney Strictly definedexists when 2 urine cultures done with clean-catch specimens are positive in a patient who has no urinary tract symptoms

Symptomatic vs Asymptomatic Bacteriuria, contd

ASB Frequent in elderly elderly >70 yrs old women: 16-18% men: 6%

Symptomatic vs. Asymptomatic Bacteriuria, contd

Asymptomatic Bacteriuria (ASB) Most ASB in the elderly is associated with complicating factors such as: Hormonal: post-menopausal women Anatomical: prostatic obstruction in men, cystocele in women Functional: CNS, i.e.dementia Metabolic: diabetics (ASB females with Type 2 diabetes29%) Immunological: s in inflammatory mediators (cytokines, acute phase proteins) Instrumental: indwelling catheteralways bacteriuric symptoms

UTI Signs and Symptoms in Elderly

Very difficult to assess and recognize, even when present in the older adult. Signs & Symptoms that indicate further evaluation for UTI elicited from H&P:

New or increased urgency, frequency, dysyuria: > in younger patients, still can be present in elderly These complaints can be common & chronic without bacteriuria Requires careful interpretationmay not be due to UTI Change in character of urine One study found cloudy, bloody, or malodorous urine in >85% symptomatic UTIs Others less predictive

Signs and Symptoms, contd

Clarity of urine
Clear no bacteria; cloudy, milky or turbid bacteriuria Cloudiness, however, can occur in normal urinemucus, epithelial cells Cloudy character, alone or with (+) dipstick analysis further lab analysis Study by Loeb et al. (2001) as consensus criteriacloudy urine not an indication for antibiotics Bloody Hematuria not always indicative of infection; possibly irritation or medication related Malodorous Not a valid indicatormay be caused by bacteria, but could be hygiene-related Often considered an indicator, however

Signs and Symptoms, contd

Elevated temperature(vital signs)
Elderly require > time to present with fever, may not have any increase in temperature may even be hypothermic Elderly at d risk for masked or absent fever response due to antipyretics, corticosteroids, chemo Rx, alcoholism, hypothyroidism, malnutrition and renal insufficiency Studies indicate fever is a marker for serious infection & most important clinical indicator for antibiotic treatment Other studies, fevers can resolve without treatment; antibiotics did not improve outcomes in elderly Not always due to UTIconsider differential diagnoses: pulmonary or skin infections Lack of fever may delay diagnosis

Signs and Symptoms, contd

Pain Despite limitations of assessment in the elderly, suprapubic, flank or CVA pain can indicate UTI (abdominal, rectal & vaginal exam) Agitation, irritability, restlessness, decreased appetite, increased confusion, or even falls may indicate pain (Neuro & GI exam) Cultural differences in interpretation of pain, symptoms Incontinence May be caused by UTI or the altered mental status that occurs with the elderly Commonly caused by other conditions Symptom and a risk factor of UTI

Signs and Symptoms, contd

Other Possible Signs & Symptoms of UTI Signs of sepsis other than fever or decline in M.S. Hypotension Tachycardia Tachypnea Rales Respiratory distress Anorexia, nausea, vomiting Abdominal tenderness

Causative Pathogens
UTI in Women Escherichia coligram (-) etiologic agent in ~ 80% of all = UTIs Research indicates primary source of microbial invasion is retrograde colonization by intestinal pathogens Other factors influencing colonization: vaginal pH, urethral length, capacity of bacteria to adhere to urothelium

Complicated vs Uncomplicated UTI

Recurrent UTIsculture-confirmed UTIs * >3 in 1 year or * > 2 in 6 months Relapse UTI occurs within 2 weeks of Rx of an earlier UTI same pathogen occurs >4 weeks after earlier UTI different pathogen

Re-infection UTI

Infectious Disease Society of America: Guidelines for Dx & Rx of ASB in adults
1. ASB Dx based on results of a culture from clean-catch specimen (* important to minimize contamination) Women: bacteriuria = 2 consecutive voided urine samples w/isolation of same strain in cfu/mL >100,000 Men: bacteria = single, clean-catch specimen with 1 bacterial species isolated in > 100,000 cfu/mL Both: single catheterized urine specimen with 1 bacterial species isolated in a count of > 1,000 cfu/mL

Guidelines, continued



Pyuria accompanying ASB not an indication for antimicrobial Rx (A-2) Pregnant women should be screened in early pregnancy, at least once & treated if positive (A-1) Screening of ASB & Rx if positive before these urological procedures: Transurethral resection of prostate (A3) Procedures anticipated to cause possible mucosal bleeding (A-3)

Guidelines, continued 5. No screening for ASB: (A-1 & A-2 strongly recommended via research evidence) Pre-menopausal, non-pregnant women (A-1) Diabetic women (A-1) Community older adults (A-2) Institutionalized elderly (A-1) Spinal cord injury (A-2) Indwelling-catheterized patients (A-1) 6. Antimicrobial Rx of asymptomatic women with catheteracquired bacteriuria persisting 48 hrs after removed, should be considered (B-1/good) 7. No screening or Rx of ASB renal transplant or solid organ transplant recipients (C-3/weak)

Screening/Diagnosis Guidelines, continued

Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, 2005 Similar consensus of IDSA recommendations Clinical considerations Dipstick analysis & direct microscopy have poor positive & negative predictive value for detecting ASB Urine culture = gold standard, but expensive for routine screening in populations of low prevalence New enzymatic urine screening test (UriscreenTM) showed 100% sensitivity & specificity of 81% No clinical benefit to screen individuals other than pregnant womendid not improve clinical outcomes. Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, 2005

Screening & Diagnosis

Guideline Criteria for Treatment
The following are a recommended minimum set of criteria adapted from the McGeer (1991) and Loeb et al. (2001) studies necessary to initiate diagnostics and AB Rx.

Indwelling catheter present: two of the following must be met


Catheter is not present: three of the following must be met


(>38C/100.4F) or increase of 1.5C (2.4F) above baseline temperature. Chills New costovertebral angle tenderness New suprapubic pain, flank pain or tenderness Decreased mental or functional status (delirium) New-onset hematuria, foul-smelling urine, or amount of sediment

dysuria alone (key indicator) or fever (>38C/100.4F) or increase of 1.5C (2.4F) above baseline temperature Chills Frequency Urgency New costovertebral angle tenderness Decreased mental or functional status (may be new or increased incontinence related) *

hematuria, foul-smelling urine or (+)

sediment New suprapubic pain, flank pain or tenderness

Routine UrinalysisKey Indicators of Infection
Urine collection 1st morning specimen is best Straight catherization for those incontinent, functionally or cognitively impaired

Specific gravity

Measure of kidneys abiltiy to concentrte urine Range of SG depends on state of hydration

Cloudy, may not indicate WBCs Could indicate a change in urine pH causes precipitation Alkaline urine phosphates cloudy Acid urine urates cloudy Pale yellow to amber Variations can be caused by medications, disease processes (*nl urine darkens on standing 30 min. after voidingoxidation of urobilinogen to urobilin) nl faint odor when freshly voided Foul-smellingoften presence of bacteria which splits urea to form ammonia

Laboratory Analysis, continued

Routine Urinalysis, continued
*Nitrite (Bacteria) Dipstick - rapid, indirect method to detect bacteria common gram-negative organisms contain enzymes reduce nitrate in urine to nitrite some UTIs are caused by organisms that do not convert nitrate to nitrite (e.g., staphylococcus, streptococci) Esterase is released by leukocytes (WBCs) in urine Microscopic exam & chemical test

*Leukocyte Esterase

__________ *U/A testing positive for nitrite & leukocyte esterase should be cultured for bacterial pathogen Fischbach, 2004

Urine Culture and Sensitivity

Traditional gold standard for significant bacteriuria >100,000 cfu/mL of urine. Some argue criteria for bacteriuria is only 100 cfu/mL of a uropathogen in symptomatic females or 1,000 in symptomatic males. Bacterial identification from urine C&S, key in males and females with complicated UTIs.

Other Laboratory Tests

Complete Blood Count with Differential Indicated to R/O bacterial infection supports treatment plan Careful evaluation of WBC & differential (left shift) Electrolytes R/O dehydration & if IV fluids replacement needed BUN, Creatinine Determine renal function for nephrotoxic medications Blood Culture Identify bacteremic organism in suspected urosepsis

Treatment Plan
Early detection/Rx goal is to prevent systemic infection, bacteremia Initiation of antibiotic treatment is recommended for a clinically-diagnosed UTI. Adjust medication when urine C&S is final Selection of antibiotic must be individualized and consider: Side effect profile Cost Bacterial resistance Likelihood of compliance (convenience, fewer pills/day s compliance) Effect of impaired renal function on dosing Possible adverse drug reactions in elderly (multiple drugs, co-morbidities.

Prevention & Treatment Recommendations/Considerations/Prevention

Research Studies
Wilde & Carrigan (2003)
Muder et al. (2006)

Patients with indwelling catheters, maintaining urine flow was a key finding in preventing UTI

catheterization is a major risk factor for S. aureus bacteriuria in long-term care patients, so reducing prevalence of indwelling catheters is key. Majority of these cases are methicillin-resistant S. aureus, which can lead to bacteremia Need for optimal infection-control measures & limit unnecessary AB admin. in LTCF. Focus on urine as potential infection reservoir, may be effective preventive strategy Study focused on catheter-related UTI. Catheter infection rate of 5%/day *Formation of biofilm on catheters leads to infection as this protects pathogens from antimicrobials & host immune response Studied efficacy of antimicrobial urinary catheters in hospitalized patients. prevent or delay onset of catheter-associated bacteriuria

Nicolle ( 2005)

Johnson et al (2006)

Prevention & Treatment

Post-menopausal women w/recurrent infection may require estrogen replacement to restore atrophic vaginal mucosa, vaginal pH (topical creams) Always adjust antibiotic dosage for renal impairment/insufficiency using the Cockcroft-Gault equation: (140-Age) x weight in Kg x 72 x serum creatinine X Ensure adequate hydration Recommended 2.5 L/day in patients with recurrent UTI Often signs & symptoms similar to UTI in elderly are actually caused by dehydration (0.85 if female)
