MRSA - Spider Bites: The Flesh-Eating Bacterial Epidemic That Threatens America

by Hernan R. Chang

MRSA - Spider Bites: The Flesh-Eating Bacterial Epidemic That Threatens America Synopsis

This is a work of fiction on an important contemporary medical topic. It relates the vicissitudes of three persons suddenly stricken by virulent infections with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). John, Britney and Peter had an initial skin lesion very similar to a 'spider bite.' They realized later that it was not a spider but an aggressive bacterium responsible for causing the lesion. This book gives you the details of their hospitalization and subsequent survival or demise. This book is also a narrative about the potential public health crisis of community-acquired MRSA infections. These infections sometimes evolve to become a 'flesh-eating' illness. Often presenting as 'spider bite' lesions, the current epidemic is occurring in a silent and dangerous manner. Important measures to curb community-acquired MRSA infections probably rely in increased public awareness and simple hygiene measures such as hand washing and the use of soap.
