If Immune system fails to eliminate the bacteria that has bypass the first line of defence it results in urinary tract infection or a more severe illness furthermore. Females are usually more distressed than males. Catheter- associated urinary tract infection develops when an indwelling urinary catheter causes an infection within 48 hours.
Aim: Compare the bacterial infection in urinary tract in non catheterized and catheterized patients.
Objectives: To know different pathogenic bacteria causing UTI in catheterized and non catheterized patients.
Materials and Methods: The present study was conducted on CAUTI & NON CAUTI patients including both male & female attending general medicine of teerthankar Mahaveer University.
Results: Infection occurred more in CAUTI patients than NON CAUTI. Ratio of females was higher than males.
Conclusion: As our study shows higher percentage of UTI in CAUTI so unnecessary catheterization should be avoided.
Keywords: Catheter, UTI
