Abstract:

The severity and extent of disease caused by multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs)
varies by the population(s) affected and the institution(s) at which these organisms are
found; therefore, preventing and controlling MDROs are extremely important. A
retrospective study of patients who were infected with Acinetobacter baumannii or
Pseudomonas aeruginosa was performed at Narayana Medical College & Hospital from
2015 t0 2016. A total of 88 A. baumannii isolates and 215 P. aeruginosa isolates were
identified during the period imipenem 73 (88%) and colistin 62 (88%) were the most
active agents against A. baumanni. Most MDR isolates were resistant to more than three
classes of antibiotics. P. aeruginosa was recovered more frequently from the pus, followed
by the soft tissue, urine and blood. Piperacillin/tazobactam 76(81.86%), doripenem 172
(80%) imipenem 170 (79%) were active against P. aeruginosa isolates. In summary, A.
bumannii was more rare than P. aeruginosa but was more commonly MDR.
Epidemiological data will help to implement better infection control strategies, and
developing a local antibiogram database will improve the knowledge of antimicrobial
resistance patterns in our region.
