BACKGROUND: Whether Candida interacts to enhance the invasive potential of Acinetobacter and Pseudomonas bacteria cannot be resolved within individual studies. There are several anti-septic, antibiotic, anti-fungal, and non-decontamination-based interventions to prevent ICU acquired infection. These effective prevention interventions would be expected to variably impact Candida colonization. The collective observations within control and intervention groups from numerous ICU infection prevention studies simulates a multi-centre natural experiment with which to evaluate Candida, Acinetobacter and Pseudomonas interaction (CAPI). METHODS: Eight Candidate-generalized structural equation models (..View full abstract
