Central Line MRSA Infection Resulting In Endocarditis
Central Line MRSA Infection Resulting In Endocarditis

This stock medical exhibit begins with one silhouette (outline) view of the upper torso of a female figure revealing the heart and great vessels including the subclavian veins. This image shows the position of a central line catheter inserted through the left subclavian vein and advanced with the tip in the superior vena cava-right atrium region of the heart. rnrnNext, three enlarged cut-away views of the left upper torso provide a clear view of the catheter insertion site. These enlargements show how the MRSA infection gains access to the circulatory system. The first image shows a cluster of bright green dots on the surface of the skin surrounding the catheter. The second image shows the invasion of the bacteria down along the course of the catheter with the small green dots spreading down through the subcutaneous tissue and into the vein. The third image shows these small green dots breaking with resulting endocarditis.
