In this lecture Professor Kristin Beach, MSN, BSN, RN will be discussing Urinary Tract Infections (UTI). A UTI is an infection in any part of the urinary system, the kidneys, bladder, or urethra.
Urinary tract infections are more common in women. They usually occur in the bladder or urethra, but more serious infections involve the kidney.
A bladder infection may cause pelvic pain, increased urge to urinate, pain with urination, and blood in the urine. A kidney infection may cause back pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever.
A UTI is most commonly treated with various antibiotics which we will be discussing in this lecture. We hope you enjoy this video!
