Podcast 27: Dr. Steven E. Sobol talks with us about his paper on trends in pediatric head-and-neck infections from S. aureus — an increasing percentage of which are MRSA.

The 6-year period 2001 – 2006 saw an increase from 12 to 28 in the percentage of S. aureus infections among head-and-neck infections in childen that were methicillin resistant. This 16-point jump is concerning, and we talk with an author of the paper documenting that increase.

Also, we’d like to know: should we be calling this thing here “Admitting Diagnosis” — or something else?
