Neuroscience patients: under attack by fungi.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • An intact skin with its acid mantle is the patient's first line of defense. Neuroscience nurses are the patient's second line of defense since they are responsible for assessment and treatment of the skin. Several risk factors make neuroscience patients susceptible to candidiasis. Skin properties, risk factors, assessment, complications and selected nursing and medical treatment of candidiasis are discussed in this article.
