-Can cause destructive changes to lungs via inflammation and hemorrhaging, notably causing pneumonia, bronchitis, and respiratory disease. -Can cause destructive changes to human lungs if aspirated, specifically to the alveoli resulting in bloody sputum
-Can cause Staph infections, skin infections, respiratory disease, food poisoning -The emergence of antibiotic-resistant forms of pathogenic S. aureus (e.g. MRSA) is a worldwide problem in clinical medicine.
-Pseudomonas aeruginosa takes advantage of an individual's weakened immune system to create an infection and this organism also produces tissue-damaging toxins. -It causes urinary tract infections, respiratory system infections, dermatitis, soft tissue infections, bacteremia, bone and joint infections, gastrointestinal infections and a variety of systemic infections.
-classified as antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, particularly difficult to treat because of their learned resistance to conventional antibiotics -Those with weakened immune systems are at greater risk of nosocomial infection than the general public. -Has occurred in the wider community — among healthy people. Often begins as a painful skin boil. It's spread by skin-to-skin contact.
-Can cause food poisoning and gastroenteritis. - Fecal–oral transmission is the major route through which pathogenic strains of the bacterium cause disease.
