Question

  1. What is the clinical utility of screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria versus no screening in people who are pregnant and are not at high risk for bacteriuria?
  2. What is the clinical utility of screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria with different screening approaches or algorithms in people who are pregnant and are not at high risk for bacteriuria?
  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding the use of screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria in people who are pregnant and are not at high risk for bacteriuria?

Key Message

Three systematic reviews and 1 randomized controlled trial about the clinical utility of screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria versus no screening in people who are pregnant and are not at risk for bacteriuria were identified.

No literature about the clinical utility of screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria with different screening approaches or algorithms in people who are pregnant and are not at high risk for bacteriuria was identified.

Six evidence-based guidelines about the use of screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria in people who are pregnant and are not at high risk for bacteriuria were identified.
