A common complaint that can conceal complexity
Strep A is shorthand for Streptococcus pyogenes.
Unlike most sore throats, which are caused by a viral infection, Strep A is a bacterial pathogen. Once diagnosed properly and in a timely fashion, it is easily treated. But ignored, even minor infections can flare into serious illnesses such as Scarlet Fever, Rheumatic Fever and other troubling illnesses.
This infection throat is also highly contagious, even by people who show no symptoms of the illness. Strep A can be spread by coughs or by breathing in aerosol, touching contaminated surfaces, even by drinking from the glass or eating from the same plate as an infected person.
Strep A often occurs in clusters, frequently among school-age children, which could explain how your patient’s child contracted his or her illness. We mention children here because while approximately 11 million people
are diagnosed with pharyngeal infections each year, up to 30% of episodes of these infections are Strep A and experienced by children.
Adults account for as many as 15%. But Strep A is also identified with healthcare associated illnesses including postpartum and post-surgical infection.What’s more, this respiratory disease is also identified with healthcare-associated illness including postpartum and post-surgical infection. On rare occasions, outbreaks are food borne.
Molecular detection accelerates the process
while eliminating doubts
Acutis Reveal™ Strep A is a molecular detection technology that is appropriate for a range of healthcare facilities from pediatric and family practices to infectious disease specialists and urgent care facilities. It is a highly calibrated technology conceived to diagnosis Group A β-hemolytic Streptococcus pyogenes, quickly and with superior accuracy.
Among the most important benefits of accurate results is how they discourage the unnecessary or over-prescribing of antibiotics. Acutis Reveal™ offers an additional layer of protection from these kinds of errors.
Accurate data, delivered same day, enables physicians and other healthcare providers to introduce a new level of efficiency into the office, allowing physicians and their practices to focus on more critical complaints.
