Combat Antibiotic-Resistant Acinetobacter
Acinetobacter is a bacteria found in potable water. This bacteria can cause pneumonia, wound infections, blood and urinary tract infections. These infections tend to occur in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients, according to the CDC’s 2019 Antibiotic Resistance Threats Report. The CDC report summarizes the current threat level as “Urgent”. In 2017, an estimated 8500 cases of Acinetobacter infections led to 700 deaths in the U.S. at an estimated cost of $281 Million.

Faucet tap and shower water are two common sources of Acinetobacter. An effective method to protect faucet tap and shower water from causing an Acinetobacter infection is the use of Point-of-Use (POU) filters.
AquaMedix offers a complete line of POU Faucet Tap and Shower Head Filters. These filters trap bacteria including Acinetobacter.
InLine Filters are also available from AquaMedix. InLine Filters trap potential pathogenic bacteria before water reaches appliances such as water sprayers used in dental offices. All filters are easy to apply and dispose of; no “red bagging” is required for disposal.
