    Transcript

    00:00 So, let's wrap up this video series. Asymptomatic bacteriuria or AB is the isolation of bacteria in an appropriately collected urine specimen obtained from a person without symptoms of a UTI. Recommendation is to consider alternate causes and observe the patient for 24 to 48 hours in an afebrile patient who is clinically well without symptoms of a UTI versus just automatically treating them with antibiotics. Pregnant women with asymptomatic bacteriuria should be treated short-term. Treatment for AB is not recommended for nursing home residents unless undergoing invasive urological procedures. Thank you for watching our video today.
